Every bride deserves an unforgettable bachelorette party and all besties and maids of honour should help plan the perfect one. Even though many might think this is a piece of cake when you want something more than having a couple of drinks in the neighbourhood bar, planning a bachelorette party in Tenerife involves more than a few phone calls, emails or group texts.
If you want to have the ultimate “fiesta”, you should definitely forget about the usual dress up, the normal games or the limo and start thinking about getting the entire squad on board in order to plan a weekend escape in an unforgettable destination. Since people are different and, while some of the bride’s maids might be interested in chilling on the beach and sipping a cocktail, others will probably want to explore a new place or just to party like there is no tomorrow, finding a location that makes everybody happy can be a difficult task. But what if there is a place that offers you the best of… all worlds?
Tenerife can be your answer! The island has great temperatures all- year-round, breathtaking beaches and views, fantastic hotels with amazing amenities all girls love, amazing outdoor activities and, of course, memorable parties. Yes, people of the Canary Islands know how to have fun! And probably the best party on the island is the Tenerife Carnival, which happens usually in February, every year.
Therefore, if you want the best bachelorette party in a place that is extremely difficult to forget, you should start planning your vacation in Tenerife. There is no doubt that, after such a sweet escape, the bride will be ready to say “I do!”.
Finding the Best Accommodation
After gathering all the girls, you must begin thinking about the accommodation. Tenerife is a beautiful piece of land in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, with an amazing number of hotels and beautifully arranged apartments, specially created for all types of travellers. If usually, people choose to stay in more touristic areas, during the Carnival everybody wants to be located in Santa Cruz, the capital of the island.
In order to make sure you get the best accommodation, you must act fast! You are planning to attend the second carnival in the world and this means that party animals from everywhere want to be on the island during the famous street events. You can look for both hotels and Airbnb accommodations in Santa Cruz, but you can also search other areas and rent a car or use a taxi in order to get to the city and join the crazy parties. For instance, water sports aficionados should take into consideration booking an apartment in El Medano, a charming surfers’ village in the east of the island, while ladies who just want to relax while sunbathing can find the best hotels in the south of Tenerife. Adeje, for instance, is a lovely area with great, luxurious hotels!
Getting Ready for The Party
As mentioned, the best parties are going to be in Santa Cruz. If you find accommodation in the city, you won’t have to worry about getting there, but if you choose other areas, you must think about the transportation arrangements. Alcohol and bachelorette parties usually go hand in hand so, whether you choose to use a taxi or rent a car, you must be responsible and plan everything ahead.
Once you did this, you can begin thinking about the costumes. Yes, of course, you must wear a costume. Everybody does! You can go with the theme of the carnival, which changes every year, or just choose whatever gets you in the mood to party! The city of Santa Cruz is filled with fantastic costumes so you don’t necessarily have to buy yours before getting to the island.
Dance Like Nobody’s Watching:
Tenerife and the Wild Street Parties
During two weeks, Santa Cruz is filled with parades, people dancing and all kinds of surprises. There are night “fiestas” and day “fiestas”, depending on when you prefer to indulge in delicious cocktails and dance…like nobody is watching.
Many say that the best party is the opening parade. And if you are anxious to see the allegorical carts, the Queens of the Carnival, and entourages being driven through the centre of Santa Cruz, you should not miss this night! The next day is usually quiet so you can rest on one of the beautiful beaches. If you stay in Santa Cruz, sunbathing on the golden sand of Las Teresitas is mandatory because this is one of the most beautiful spots on the island. And there is no better way to get ready for the next party than by resting on the beach, listening to the calming waves of the ocean, and letting the sun colour your skin.
Indulge in Other Great Activities on the Island of Eternal Spring
Even though you are planning a bachelorette party, you don’t have to drink and dance all day and all night, do you? You are going to be in a real “Spanish paradise” so you should take advantage of all its hidden gems. So, if you and the other girls feel wild, you can adventure yourself into watersports. Whether you dream about snorkelling with the huge turtles, surfing or scuba diving, Tenerife will satisfy all these dreams. And in case water is not your best friend, you can always hike together and explore the natural beauty of the island while admiring some of the best views in the world. You are on a volcanic island and, Teide, the volcano, is the highest mountain in Spain, so why not explore it while you are there?
And for the lazy moments, you can just relax on the beach and get closer to the Canary Islands’ cuisine, by discovering the Michelin starred restaurants, as well as the famous “guachinches” the cheap, family-run places where you can eat mouthwatering local food and pair it with the delicious homemade wine.
Doesn’t this sound like the perfect bachelorette party? Sure, these are only some of the things you can do in Tenerife since the island hides many other amazing places and interesting activities, but just like in life, some of them deserve to be discovered instead of planned.
