When you are out on a hen do and embracing the sun and the sea, the best way to embrace it is to find yourself out on the sea itself, soaking up the tranquility and ambience of the ocean on a catamaran, soaking in the sun, drink in hand, surrounded by your favourite ladies. After all, there is a reason why the Catamaran Cruise hen weekend is one of our most popular activities for all our beach based hen weekend destinations – it is because it’s an absolutely perfect activity that everyone enjoys. Obviously the specifics of the activity vary from place to place, you may find that you would prefer the whole catamaran to yourself for some extra privacy or want to share with the general public, there will be an option to suit your taste and budget. Typically you’ll find yourself setting sail in the late afternoon, watching sunset from the deck of the boat and enjoying the perfect coastal views.

While sitting back on the beach and relaxing can be an important part of a hen party, some people want to punctuate that relaxation with a little excitement and adrenaline fuelled adventure as a part of their perfect European hen weekend, and if that’s what you like, then I can guarantee a Fly Boarding hen weekend will be a perfect activity! This activity has really taken off (literally!) in the last couple of years, with the excitement and adrenaline pumping whist flying high above the water thrilling the younger and the older hens alike. Your feet will be strapped to what looks like a slightly larger snowboard, and then jets of water will stream out of the base, allowing you to hover above the water – you'll have never felt so alive! This is not an activity for the faint hearted, but will be one you remember forever.

The excitement of jet skiing is second to none, and is absolutely perfect for a sun-filled hen weekend where everyone wants to get a bit more active before you start painting the hen weekend destination red.
