Over the last few years, Lisbon as grown in popularity as a Hen Weekend destination, because it has all of this positives and is somewhere that lots of people have not yet tried to visit.

What to Do?
Lisbon is bursting at the seams with things for you to do on your Hen Do. After all, it’s one of the most visited cities in Europe, with over two million visitors a year, so it must be doing something right! For many hen parties, the most essential option is one that you’d never get to do from the UK – a catamaran cruise. This relaxation filled activity means that you and all the girls get to pile onto one of the nicest boats you’ll have ever seen and explore the coastline of this gorgeous city. A drink in hand, you can either sit back and sunbathe to your hearts content, or party the afternoon away.
Alternatively, if you fancy heading out the water but want it to be a bit more physical, what about a paddle boarding session? The most popular water sport of the last few years, paddle boarding off the coast of Portugal may just be the best way to experience this activity. After all if you go paddle boarding in the UK, you are going to be cold and miserable for longer than you will be having fun – but in the scorching heat of the Portugese sun, you’ll enjoy yourself whether you are successfully balanced on the board, swimming in the water or just waiting on the beach for another go.
Maybe you are looking for something even more relaxing? Then what about a spa day. Perfect for finding your centre and relaxing as much as possible, a spa day in Lisbon is something that you’ll be talking about for weeks afterwards.
