Party Like An Essex Girl
Just a short 3 hour flight from the UK, Ibiza is home to sandy beaches, blue seas and of course, a buzzing nightlife!
Where to stay
With so many hotels and apartments to choose from, especially when on a budget, San Antonio is the number one choice for any bride-to-be. There is plenty to do and see throughout the day; pool parties, boat excursions to nearby bays and water sport activities.
In the evening crowds head to the sunset strip, popular spots include Café Mambo, Savannah Beach Club and Café Del Mar. There is a constant buzz, and it’s a great spot to mix with lots of young folk from all parts of the world.
Things to do
The day time is usually spent recovering from the night before, followed by relaxing by the pool or on a beach. For the more energetic hen and her chicks, there are an abundance of cool water activities. The Mediterranean climate is particularly pleasant in the summer, with hot and dry weather from June to September.
There is a more sophisticated vibe in the port Marina Botafoch and across the bay, where the upgraded old port is flattered by a display of millionaires and their super yachts.
So many businesses in Ibiza offer great packages exclusive to Hen and Stag parties, such as Cocktail Masterclasses, Karaoke, Horse Riding and Quad Biking.
It’s definitely worth visiting Ibiza town whilst on the island for a spot of R+R. Ladies will be spoilt for choice in Ibiza town with shops and boutiques, as well as side street restaurants and tapas bars.
What to wear
The tradition for most hen parties is that the bride wears white, and her chicks go uniform in another colour. When celebrating in Ibiza, why not opt for white swimwear. This season’s hottest summer trend for days spent by the pool is the one piece swim suit. You can still be sexy in the sun, why not try a lower neckline, or some mesh paneling.
When out for dinner and cocktails, why not try a floaty dress, that way you can enjoy plenty of pasta and pizza, it’s your hen party, be naughty. This Topshop dress looks comfortable but effortlessly chic.
For the club appearances and crazy after parties, this sexy white dress from Missguided is perfect!
Whether it’s a bag of themed items to use throughout the holiday or a care package to help everyone survive the weekend (and the potential hangover), your guests will love receiving a bag of goodies to help get them into the party spirit.
Ibiza is the perfect island for any modern and stylish hen – with a raving daytime party scene, countless chart-topping DJs playing on poolside stages, and an endless coastline full of chill out beaches.
