The Best Time to Go

According to our stats at StagWeb, 61% of stags visit from June to August, and that's when Marbs is at its best.

Yes, you're pretty much guaranteed unbelievable weather (usually in the 30s) and an electric atmosphere to go with.

And, trust us, there's nothing better than an ice-cold cerveza under the Mediterranean sun.

The life.

How Long Do People Go For?

48% of stags stayed for 4 days (3 nights).

3 nights gives you guys plenty of time to take on a few activities, nights out and a enjoy few rare days of sun. A lot of stags go for longer, but we wouldn't recommend any less than that - you'll just find yourselves trying to pack too much in.

Yep, 3 nights gives you plenty of time to drink in the atmosphere (and Estrella).

How Soon Do People Book?

Those heading to Marbella booked their weekends 4 months before they were due to go, which is the average according to our end-of-year stats.

At StagWeb, we'd always advise people to book as early as popular, particularly if they're heading abroad because:

  • Flights are usually cheaper the earlier you book
  • There's more availability for activities and hotels
  • You get the pick of the time slots to suit your itinerary

Any later and you risk missing out on your preferred options to a more organised group.
