Best European Hen Do Destinations
Summer is the best time for a Hen do, with the happy mood that the sun brings. All our destinations are amazing in the summer time, but some are better than others, so we have put together for you a few of our top picks for the best summer European Hen do destinations.
Even with the recent regulations that have come in to limit the amount of alcohol consumed by tourists, Ibiza still has to be one of our best summer Hen do destinations. Ibiza itself is a jewel of an island, with beautiful beaches and fragrant pine forests and a magical atmosphere all of its own. Party Boats are no longer available in Ibiza, but that doesn’t mean that you and the girls can’t charter a boat to cruise the coastline and snorkel in the clear blue waters, and although organised bar crawls are now banned that doesn’t mean that you and the girls can’t spend the evening in the epic West End of San Antonio, hopping from bar to bar and club to club, there just won’t be any drinks promotions offered to you to bring you into any bars, as these are now illegal. Ibiza has made its name as a party goers heaven due to the Super clubs, such as Es Paradis in San Antonio and Pacha in Ibiza Town, and these are unaffected by the new alcohol regulations and a visit to one of these will make you realise exactly why Ibiza is a top pick for our best summer Hen do destinations. With stylish beach clubs, gorgeous beaches and outstanding nightlife, Ibiza is still one of the best places for hen dos abroad.
Our next choice for best summer Hen do destinations is that TOWIE favourite, Marbella. This city is located on the Costa del Sol and has earned a reputation over the years as a millionaires’ playground, with miles of golden sand beaches, luxurious hotels and villas and manicured golf courses. This exclusive resort is the summer hiding place of all manner of celebrities and royalty, who reside in secluded villas and opulent expensive hotels. Just to the west of Marbella is the Golden Mile, a renowned strip of ultra-cool and exclusive nightclubs catering to the wealthy clientele, which leads to the marina of Puerto Banus, where you can moor your magnificent luxury yacht if you have one, and which is home to a selection of chic bars and even chicer retail outlets. Marbella is famed for its beaches and its glamorous nightlife and has to be an option for our best summer Hen do destinations.
Hvar is always going to be a place that comes to mind when you are looking at the best summer Hen do destinations. Hvar is a small island off the Dalmatian coast of Croatia which has become more and more popular as a Hen weekend destination over the years and there are some good reasons for that. The island of Hvar is picture postcard beautiful for starters, with a rugged coastline, pristine beaches and fields of lavender inland, and it is surrounded by a host of other small islands known as the Pakleni islands, which can be explored by boat for an unforgettable day of secluded beaches and unspoilt coves. Hvar town itself is an ancient settlement with a rich history and includes 12 th century walls and a renaissance era cathedral, but is now host to modern restaurants and luxury accommodation along with a night life scene which has earned Hvar a well-deserved reputation as a party island. As a popular holiday resort for the jet set crowd, Hvar is not a cheap choice for a Hen weekend, but if you are looking for a stylish Hen do that you will never forget, then we would suggest some consideration for Hvar as one of our best Summer Hen do destinations.
Ok, we know that Bournemouth is more UK than European, however, it really is one of the best hen do places so it’s definitely worth considering if you want to keep everything close to home and have a UK based Hen weekend, then our pick for best summer Hen do destinations would have to be sunny Bournemouth down on the south coast. With its 7 miles of award winning golden sand beaches Bournemouth is a town that is made for summer Hen weekends and it’s unique microclimate means it is always a few degrees warmer than the surrounding areas.

Our final entry for best summer Hen do destinations is another Croatian city, Split. Split is the second largest city in Croatia and so offers a much wider range of activities than Hvar, and being a less exclusive destination it is also better value for money, however if you are looking for beaches, sunshine and a wild night out, then Split can deliver the goods. Split has a wide range of beaches from pebbly to sandy for you and the girls to explore and the city itself has an ancient heart with Roman monuments and exquisite architecture for you to marvel at. Split comes alive at night with a famed nightlife and a host of beach bars and clubs for you to party the night away in and a highly recommended activity is a bar crawl with a local guide to really make the most of the nightlife. We never hesitate to recommend Split as one of our best summer Hen do destinations, as this amazing city makes for an unforgettable final weekend of freedom.
