Hen parties abroad are usually dominated by nights out on a destinations strip, followed by days spent sunbathing on the beach. But what if you could combine the best of both worlds, with a little added luxury? Enter the beach bar, a swanky alternative to your typical hen night out! Here are just a few of the best for luxury, incredible views and even celeb spotting...
Kanali Taverna, Crete
Even if your group isn't in the mood for culture, you won't fail to be charmed by Crete. Perched on Elounda Bay, Kanali Taverna is surrounded by stunning views. An ancient sunken city, pretty church and sparkling sea make for the perfect hen do backdrop. Why not line your stomach with some fresh, local seafood while you're there?
Hula Hula Beach Bar, Hvar
If your hen group's on the hunt for something more decadent, you won't want to miss Hula Hula Beach Bar in Hvar, Croatia. Not only is it on one of the best beaches in Hvar, but Hula Hula is a vibrant night spot home to buzzing dance parties, pounding music and amazing cocktails. Did we mention that it's a favoured haunt of Jay Z and Beyoncé, too?
This upmarket beach club in the city of Palma, in Majorca, Spain, may be a playground for well-to-do yogis and sun-worshippers during the day, but at night, the place comes alive with music. Dance around the huge pool with fellow clubbers, and a Porn Star Martini in hand, but don't forget to gaze out across the ocean view!
Ushuaia Beach Hotel, Ibiza
Ushuaia themselves state that 'boredom is forbidden', but they'd be hard-pressed to find a hen party twiddling their thumbs at this vast beach club. Contained within the Ushuaia Beach Hotel in Ibiza, if there was ever a perfect spot for a hen night out, this is it. This club is all about exhibitionism and energy: partying until the sun comes up to DJs like David Guetta. You'd better pack your dancing shoes!
Nissi Bay Beach Bar, Ayia Napa
As if the crystal clear waters and white sands of Nissi Beach weren't enough, your hens can take advantage of a pretty impressive beach club. Found in Ayia Napa, the party capital of Cyprus, Nissi Bay Beach Bar hosts everything from foam parties to DJ sets, and even allows revellers to hire jet-skis. If your group's idea of heaven involves music and mojitos, this is one for you.
Kaluna Beach Club, Tenerife
Kaluna Beach Club is the jewel in Tenerife's crown: a true slice of laidback Spanish life. With panoramic views over the Atlantic Ocean, what better place for you and your hens to settle down with a cocktail and watch the sun set? Take a seat on the terrace for the very best view, and enjoy music spun by talented DJs. With a pool, sun loungers and a restaurant, too, your group could easily while away an entire day at this indulgent beach club.
