We couldn’t even begin to count the number of ways in which Spain has to be one of the hottest countries in Europe for a stag do… trust us, the heat (upwards of 30°C in summer) is only one part of it. At StagWeb, we’re such huge fans of stag weekends in Spain, we offer a colossal 8 different cities & regions as destinations there for you and the boys to choose from - the highest number anywhere outside of England! Whether you and the lads are there for the San Miguel, sangria, or just a few glasses of Spanish wine, coast to coast Spain is a sizzling hotbed of non-stop phenomenal stag weekend fun.
Like we said, there are innumerable reasons for a Spain stag do. If we had to narrow it down to just three, though, they'd be…
Unsurprisingly, for stag weekends, Spain's capital is a top choice. Madrid is classic, cool, and very, very sexy. It’s one of the richest cities in Europe, home to one of the most successful football teams in the world, and the nightlife is scorching. Barcelona, our best selling Spanish stag do destination and top beach city in the world, is famed for a wild and immersive nightlife. Swinging between the burning hot strip dinners to the ice cold ice bars, you and the lads are guaranteed a stag weekend you'll never forget.
When you and the lads are looking to celebrate your mate's impending nuptials with an all-out, full throttle stag night, Spain has more than a few cities that will keep you all partying well into the next day... before a quick siesta, and then starting the party all over again! Ibiza is, hands down, one of the best party cities on the planet. With more than 50 beaches and the world's biggest superclub, it's the most hedonistic, explosive city in Europe. Infamous Magaluf, favourite of lads looking for a brilliant value and riotous night out, isn't exactly lagging behind the legendary Ibiza, either. And Benidorm has embraced the British party scene with open arms, whilst keeping the searing heats and stunning beaches of Spain!
Don't think a Spain stag do is limited to pounding back the shots in nightclubs; there are plenty of options for a more laid back stag party to enjoy. Marbella has its share of world famous clubs - it does a particularly good line in foam and champagne parties - but by day it's the home of the rich and famous, all VIPs, yachts and designer stores, giving you and the lads the chance to rub elbows with celebrities. Valencia is all class and style. You've still got the chance to enjoy a vibrant and energetic nightlife, but as Spain's third largest city it has a lot to offer by day as well. And if you and the lads are over the all night clubbing scene, and want a little sophistication and luxury? La Manga, home of relaxation, leisure, and a lot of golf, might just be the place for your stag weekend in Spain.
Aside from relaxing with a glass of sangria, partying in the clubs, and lounging on the beaches? There's also a literally staggering range of water sports around, from banana boats to cruises to scuba diving to white water rafts, to pretty much everything else you can do on water. And, unlike British seas, you won't come out with frostbite in unfortunate places. If you’d rather stay on dry land, there’s also world class football, parasailing, beer bikes, theme parks, golf and all of the traditional stag favourites… along with a whole lot more.
Getting into Spain couldn’t be easier. It's one of the most popular countries to visit in Europe, and so you'll find plenty of lines flying in to various airports in Spain - the busiest are Madrid, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca and Malaga, and Valencia is a close runner up. Airlines like Aer Lingus, BA, and Monarch, fly frequently from all over the UK, as do budget airlines easyJet and Ryanair. Flights to Spain from England can take as little as 2 hours, perfect for a weekend trip away with the lads.
Any point from April to October is going to find you blistering heats, and things get especially hot at the height of summer if you’re inland, in cities like Madrid. Places like Ibiza and Magaluf tend to close up over the winter, so don’t make your way there much before Easter, or after September. For festivals… well, Spain has something going on pretty much constantly - it’s a country that loves a fiesta! Three Kings Day is celebrated throughout Spain in January, Las Fallas, with a lot of puppets and giant paper models, is celebrated in March in Valencia. Holy Week is celebrated all through easter, and the Saint George Festival in Barcelona is in April too. In May there's Madrid's largest festival, the Fiesta San Isidro, and June there's the Night of San Juan in Valencia. August sees the world famous Tomato Festival in Valencia, and September wraps up with the Fiesta de la Merce in Barcelona.
