Let's face it, you only book a Benidorm stag weekend if you are a true party master. This is
the promised land; the best clubs, the craziest bars, the sunniest beaches and the biggest hangovers.
"...Hassle free weekend. We had a blast from what we can remember. Benidorm is a must for any stag and StagWeb made that much easier...."
Café Benidorm - Popular with hens and stags, the 'café' is a slight misnomer for what is a buzzing nightclub and live lounge with guest artists regularly jetting in from Blighty.
Jokers - Another big name with those in the know, Jokers is one of the resorts hottest clubs and part of a group of top venues that includes the legendary Sinatras.
Amigos - Good food, good friends, good drink, good times! Amigos, menu and roof terrace can add a real touch of class to your night out.
July - Low Festival. If you like your music loud and indie the Low Festival really is just the ticket. Top acts from around the world.
July - Neptune. If beats are more your thing Neptune is epic! Big sounds, big name DJs and a massive party crowd.
Aug - Electro Beach. More top dance tunes and special guest DJs bring in the crowds. The daddy of all beach parties.
October - Oktoberfest. While there isn't an official website yet, Benidorm goes Bavarian in October with its own beer fuelled knees up.
"El águila no se entretiene en cazar moscas."
- Spanish Proverb (The eagle doesn't waste time hunting flies.)
Districts - If you're on a Benidorm stag do there's pretty much only one destination worth worrying about. Head to 'the strip' which contains all the biggest and best nightlife. Everything is within walking distance. It can get pretty manic and, what with keeping the stags together being a bit like herding kittens, it might be worth laying down a few stag forfeits.
Must See... - Benidorm really is all about sun, sand sea and sangria. It's an amazing place to party. If you're really going to make the most of it, hitting the beach is a must. It's not only good to work on those pre-wedding tans, but the sea breeze makes a good hangover cure.
In the 1950's the town's mayor had a vision to put the sleepy fishing village firmly on the tourist map.
He allowed women to wear bikinis on the beach and the rest is history.
Half a million Brits visit the Costa Blanca every year.
Benidorm has two beaches and 3,400 hours of sunshine each year.
The Celtic language (used in Scotland and Ireland) was spoken in the north of Spain until 1 BC.
Eats - Grill House. Situated perfectly between the beach and "the strip", this fantastic steak house serves up man-sized portions of superb Spanish beef. If you're really hungry we'd recommend the monster 'Super Burger'.
Drinks - When in Rome... And in Benidorm you should definitely try the local brews. One rather fine beverage is 'Burning Benidorm'. While we'd hate to see this epic resort on fire, we do love the superb beer.
Getting into Benidorm from the airport couldn't be easier, book with StagWeb and we'll arrange it for you!
The town itself is nicely compact and getting around on foot is a doddle, in fact, wherever you stroll the beach always seems to end up just 5 minutes away. The best of the nightlife is also easy to find on foot.
If you are heading further afield then you can hop on a bus and certain bus routes run all night long. Travel cards give you unlimited access over a set time period.

Benidorm, land of a thousand bars and endless "Let's never speak of this again..." nights out that inevitably someone will talk about again. With some of the best bars and nightclubs in Europe, towering skyscrapers, stunning beaches and hours of glorious sunshine, it's the perfect place for the big weekend.
QI - Benidorm became popular after the mayor made it the first city to lift the ban bikinis.
Oh happy days!
Traditional white walled houses, cobbled streets and bars, like Michael Caine surveying the charging Zulus, "Thousands of them...". Well, there are hundreds for sure. Bars, clubs, pubs, live music venues, theme bars, tapas restaurants, burger joints, pizza places. Passeig de la Carretera is the main route, packed with shoppers by day and party people by night, it runs down to the beach. The Old Town is also home to El Mirador de la Punta del Canfali, the castle look out point and perfect place for a stag team photo.
The New Town district, Levante is modern and cosmopolitan, packed with great bars, clubs and restaurants and a great place to start a big night out and has launched many a Benidorm stag do. With everything from cabaret bars and karaoke you can get musical, there's also a huge selection of British grub on offer if you can't persuade all the guys to try something a little more continental. Levante is also home to English Square, drinks around here are very cheap and the party crowd tend to be mostly British. If it's live music you're after check out Daytona and Heartbreak that both feature live bands.
Home to the famous Benidorm Palace (it's a show and nightlife venue, not a small, camp castle) and yes, there are more bars and clubs (this is Benidorm!). The Rock and Roll House has great live bands and tribute acts. Many venues sit overlooking the beach making this a nice spot to start or end the night, raising a glass to the groom, enjoying the sunset and reminding him that his best years are now officially behind him. Because that's what friends are for.
Slightly further away this is where you're more likely to find locals in the bars rather than tourists. Slightly quieter than the famous Old Town and streets like Avenida Madrid, it's actually a really nice walk along the seafront during your Benidorm stag weekend to get to Poniente and you will find a slightly older crowd away from the midnight revellers of English Square.
QI - Can't find room to lay out your beach towel?
Keep walking, Costa Blanca has 200 kilometres of coastline to choose from.
Skyscrapers - The town considers itself the Manhattan of Spain. It certainly does have a some pretty impressive erections (oh come on, you're better than that!), including the 192-metre Intempo, one of Spain's tallest buildings.
English Square - The perfect place to party at night is still a pretty cool place to see by day with plenty of handy places to grab a bite, treat those Benidorm stag do hangovers and piece together the events of the night before.
Benidorm Zoo - Yes, if animals are your thing there is a large zoo with lions and tigers and bears, oh my!
The Old Town - During the day you can still see the charm of the original fishing village with cobbled streets, white walled buildings and traditional Spanish food.
Calle Santo Domingo - Known as 'Tapas Alley' you can literally eat your way from one end to the other. Now THAT's how you do sightseeing!
The Beaches - Because if you want some serious eye candy, the beach is the way to go!
Waterpark - Unleash your inner child and just go nuts! See exactly what awaits you here.
Festivals - Benidorm has a number of awesome music festivals throughout the year. Ask our team for details of the best times to hit the resort.
QI - 'Costa Blanca' isn't actually a Spanish term, it was dreamt up by British European Airways as an advertising gimmick to attract more British tourists.
Placa del Castell - The 'place of the castle' is where the former castle that protected Alicante from pirate raider and invaders. The views are immense. There's also big canons, because you know, the gun show. It also leads on to El Mirador.
El Mirador de la Punta del Canfali - This look out point juts out to see and is an ideal spot for those team photos with blue skies and crystal-clear sees in the background.
La Cruz - The cross of Benidorm sits to the West overlooking the resort. Originally put in place in 1961 to absolve the resort of its sins, it is undoubtedly the best view of the area, that the 45 minute hike means very few tourists see. Well worth the trip.
The Beaches - Yep, it's back to the beach so you can show off your beach ready bods and Instagram the results.
QI - In Europe, only London and Milan have more skyscrapers than Benidorm.
If we were to get all poetic about it, "Oh Benidorm, how do we love thee, let us count the ways... Hundreds! Yes, there are hundreds of reasons to love Benidorm, the hundreds of bars, clubs the beaches but right up there with the very best of them are the activities and challenges.

The buildings are taller, the shows are bigger, happy hour carries you well into the night and your enthusiastic hosts will see your glasses topped up till dawn. Recent times have seen the big bucks ploughed into the city and with over 2000 bars, pubs and clubs, 300 sun kissed days a year and music, cabaret, and a slice of Britain at its core, the rejuvenated party capital of the Costas brings it home in style. Take it from us gents, with sun, sea, San Miguel and a whole host of super-clubs on tap, Benidorm promises to be a weekend of epic proportions.
It's simple... Benidorm. Can. Party! The last 7 years have seen the city develop into one of Europe's largest stag and hen destinations. And that's in no small part thanks to the brilliant foresight of the town's former mayor, whose vision of a thriving Spanish resort laid the foundations for the buzzing party central that now welcomes over 3 million visitors every year. We salute you sir!
With the mercury rising (even in winter it's still incredibly warm Met Office), streets packed with every drinking, dining and entertainment establishment imaginable and a storming line-up of live events across the city there's no denying Benidorm can get busy. And with the festivities come the crowds. But with some careful planning the city is set for an unforgettable Benidorm stag do any time of the year.
Never more is the Latin party spirit in force than when the city's festivals hit the streets. From the 60,000 revellers rocking to the likes of Kasabian, Placebo, Portishead, Belle and Sebastian and Suede at July's 'Low Cost' indie festival to November's annual Benidorm Fiesta, which sees the city transformed into a sea of colour and celebrations. The week-long event takes partying to epic heights when live music, midnight concerts, all manner of processions, outdoor theatre, street performers and a pretty impressive firework finale prove that when it comes to putting on a show, Benidorm means business.
Flights from any UK airport will find you in Costa Blanca in approximately two hours. Transfers are available from the airport to the city, with Alicante to Benidorm taking roughly 45 minutes by road.
Playa Levante is a haven of night-time activity with its trendy beachfront clubs, themed bars, tourist eateries, home-style English food and live music. When it's time to feed the masses top nod has to go to the laid back foodie heaven that is Old Town. The narrow streets offer everything from tapas and local Jamon to Dutch, French and Chinese cuisines. Not forgetting the stalwart favourite of the locals, a good old fashioned fry-up! The hub of the city's stag and hen nightlife centres around the 'English Zone', the British bars and clubs of the Calle Mallorca (The Square), where live bands, DJs and an endless supply of karaoke mics blast out the soundtrack to the evening's activities.
Benidorm won't just deliver on the nightlife, the city's quality facilities and rugged landscape provide a wealth of opportunity for action-packed daytime activities too. Ultra-competitive stags can separate the men from the boys with all-out warfare on the paintball field, or battle it out for pole position with head-to-head action at the go kart track (and it's a good one gents, home to national racing and with super karts that reach up to 90kph, the asphalt takes no prisoners). The thrill seekers among you can experience the rush of the mountains racing by with a day's downhill biking, or for something a little less energetic but still guaranteed to get the adrenaline pumping head to Terra Mitica, where Spain's answer to Alton Towers will keep the boys happy with over 50 monster rides to choose from. For a more sedate introduction to the stag weekend enjoy a laugh over a morning's pitch and putt and then head for some R&R at the region's top spa.
