12+ Unique Bachelorette Party Destinations For World Trotters!
You’re only a bachelorette once, so, however—and wherever—you choose to spend, it should be one for the books. While Las Vegas may be top of mind when it comes to bachelorette destinations, there are many alternative locations just as suitable to your party needs. Dreaming of a beach escape? Try the Caribbean. A wild, “last hurrah?” Explore Mexico! Wine tasting? Consider Argentina.
A good bachelorette party destination should offer plenty of sunshine and a variety of activities for the group to enjoy. Your bachelorette party is about bonding with your favorite people as much as it is about celebrating the change in your relationship status, so destinations with multiple merits—a relaxing ambiance, scenic views, amazing food, and a bustling nightlife—are keys for everyone to have a good time. Accessibility and affordability are major planning considerations. Coordinate schedules early on (as soon as you propose to your bridesmaids-to-be) and are on the lookout for deals. Pro tip: Save money by booking group packages in advance. So whether your ideal getaway is
fun in the sun or action and adventure, there’s a vacation perfect for you and your friends.
Vieques, Puerto Rico: W Retreat & Spa
Beyond beaches, guests can create their own adventure with island activities such as hiking, horseback riding, and guided nighttime tours of the sublime Bioluminescent Bay, a must-visit.
Clearwater Beach, Florida
Maximize the sun, sand, and sea exposure and have drinks (and a massage!) seaside. Head to Sand Key Park, a less populated beach where you may just spot endangered turtles laying eggs! If you’d prefer to enjoy the island from a boat, head to the Clearwater Beach Marina and rent one for your crew.
Indulge in a therapeutic mud bath at the Blue Hole Mineral Spring in Brighton District for some much-needed R & R. Then, take a stroll along Bourbon Beach for live reggae performances. Explore Negril’s nightlife through the One Love Bus Bar Crawl along One Love Drive. It comes highly recommended.
Palos Verdes, California
Unplug by the Terranea Cove Beach or join group wellness-focused activities arranged by the Terranea Resort team like “Painting by the Sea” kayaking tours, guided coastal hikes, and more. Make a stop at the Wayfarer’s Chapel, a popular religious site, to marvel at its architecture. Schedule your trip during spring to witness a whale migration at the Point Vicente Interpretive Center!
Charleston, South Carolina
Spend a day at the most popular city in South Carolina with a carriage tour of the city or leisurely perusing King Street’s boutiques and antique shops. Take in a panoramic sunset aboard a Schooner Pride sailboat cruise. For a more inebriated option, try a Booze Cruise with Adventure Harbor Tours.
Looking to après-ski (or après-snowshoe, shop, or even a sleigh ride)? Hit the slopes at Bromley or Stratton, two award-winning ski resorts located near the hotel. Back at the hotel, arrange a bonfire and gather the ladies for a round of s’mores and hot chocolate.
New Orleans, Louisiana
The squad will love jazz bar-hopping along Frenchmen Street where local favorites include Blue Nile, The Spotted Cat Music Club, and Preservation Hall, a hole-in-the-wall jazz club. Still can’t get enough of jazz? Take a tour of the New Orleans Jazz Museum. If you and your girls are up for hitting spookier spots, take ghost tours around town or browse voodoo shops at Bourbon Street.
London, United Kingdom
Theater lovers can see performances at Shakespeare’s Globe or London’s West End. Book a private Canal Party Cruise (avail of the Hen Party package!) for sightseeing with drinks along with Regent’s Canal. Celebrate over dinner while watching cabaret, jazz, and burlesque performances at Proud Cabaret City, a retro, prohibition-esque bar.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Sites like the Arch and both Lovers’ and Divorce beaches are always popular. For a more artsy trip, visit San Jose del Cabo’s Gallery District and join an art walk. Sailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, whale watching, surfing, and swimming with whale sharks (from September to April) are the recommended water activities. If you prefer an adventure on land, ride a camel through the desert, hike, or rent an ATV to explore the Baja Outback.
La Fortuna (Alajuela), Costa Rica
Gal pals can bond over adrenaline-pumping adventure activities such as horseback riding, zip-lining, and hiking through the lava fields to the La Fortuna Waterfall. For a less physically demanding adventure, join a safari float tour along the Peñas Blancas River which ends with a chocolate field visit—tasting included.
Manhattan, New York
New York offers options for every possible bachelorette activity on your radar. If you’re are into the theater, get the girls together for a show on- or Off-Broadway. Art connoisseurs can go gallery-hopping in the afternoon at Chelsea, or visit The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the renovated Museum of Modern Art. At night, catch a burlesque show at Slipper Room, watch stand-up comedy at New York Comedy Club, or listen to slam poetry at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe.
Playa del Carmen, Mexico
You can spend time leisurely lounging poolside or in private cabanas, or afloat on a chartered catamaran. Explore downtown by foot as the island is mostly a car-free zone. At night, get all dolled up and dance the night away at Coco Bongo or the Mandala Night Club. If you prefer the daytime beach club scene, head to Mamita’s Beach Club and Coralina Daylight Club for sunset pool parties.
