A Guide To Your Albufeira Hen Party
Where to Drink in Albufeira
Albufeira is a hen do heaven and after a day of Albufeira activities, there's plenty of places to chill out or get the party started.
A short taxi ride away from the beach is the infamous strip of electric bars, neon signage and cheap drinks deals. It's proper European partying where locals and visitors head to check out the nightlife. It's 2km of pure party bliss and a hen party staple!
Old Town is a great place to spend the evening if you need a good catch up or want to enjoy the sun before it sets! Largo Cais Herculano is a seafront street with so much outdoor seating to gaze at the stunning views. The bars are big but they soon pack out, and there are plenty of other vibrant squares around to check out if you're in the mood for table service amongst architectural triumphs!
Sights & Sounds
Sights - With so many incredible beaches to choose from it's hard to find a favourite, however, Praia da Marinha and Praia da Rocha are considered to be two of the best beaches in Europe. Away from the sand the Water Park is worth a visit for thrill-seeking hens.
Sounds - The winter garden at T-Cube is the perfect place to enjoy the summer nights and dance into the wee small hours of the morning. You'll also find a piano bar and restaurant if you fancy making a real night of it. If you enjoy your clubbing without the hassle speak to our team about Guest List Nightclub Entry. No queues, no fees, no fuss.
Shopping in Albufeira
The Forum - The regions largest shopping mall will keep shoe lovers and fashionistas happy with a great selection of top brand names and designer stores.
Casa das Portas - No, it's not Mary Portas' holiday home, although she'd love this selection of independent shops and boutiques. Well worth a visit.
Getting Around Albufeira
The only real viable method of public transport is by bus, however, most things in the central areas are easily accessible by foot (or heels in the evening). Taxis are air-conditioned and licensed, however, it is best to agree a price before getting in.
You really will be loving the 'hot summer nights' with some amazing hen nightlife in Albufeira (one of Europe's funkiest destinations). But don't leave it to chance, Dinner Reservations, Karaoke, Guest List Nightclub Entry or why not surprise the blushing-bride-to-be with a hunky Strip Dinner?
Quickfire Albufeira Hen Do FAQs
Does Albufeira Have a Good Nightlife?
Albufeira is one of the best places in Europe for hen parties (ever) and its New Town area offers loads of places to party with a huge choice of entertainment and busy nightlife, particularly along "The Strip" (Areias de São João).
What is the Busiest Month in Albufeira?
Whilst peak tourist season will be in July and August (when prices are at their highest), the main hen and stag season is May and June when things are a bit cheaper. The sun will still be blazing these months and the party atmosphere will be electric.
How Expensive is Food in Albufeira?
Food in Albufeira doesn't need to be expensive. Like any popular European destination, there will be tourist traps that will charge more, but if you look around you can find cheap bites to eat if you're conscious of your budget. You can easily get meals for under €10, but if you want to factor in drinks and extras, budget for more.
How Many Nights Should We Stay on a Hen Do in Albufeira?
Here at GoHen, our statistics show that most groups book a 4-night stay for a hen do in Albufeira, with around 65% of hens having booked that for 2023. This is slightly longer than the average pre-wedding celebration, but people want to make the most of their time in a sunny European destination.
Can Women Travel Safely in Albufeira?
Portugal ranks as one of the safest European countries for female travellers overall. The locals are friendly and helpful, so as long as you stick to the general rules, such as not accepting drinks from strangers and avoiding dark unpopulated areas, everything will be fine! For more info on safety and security, check out the foreign travel advice for Portugal on the Gov website.
How Long is a Flight from the UK to Albufeira?
A direct flight from London to Albufeira is no more than 3 hours with pretty much every major European airline offering a nonstop flight. For the rest of the UK, it can take anywhere between 2.5-3.5 hours, depending on where you're flying from.
It's time for a hen party in Albufeira!
Big enough to get fantastically lost in the maze of cobbled streets, but small enough to hop from bar to beach to bistro in a matter of minutes, an Albufeira hen do easily leads the laid-back way as one of GoHen's favourite picks in Europe. With more hours' sunshine per year than California, over 200km of glorious sandy beaches and crystal clear seas just a stone's throw from your accommodation, hen weekends in Albufeira are about as close to paradise as you can get! Fun-packed days melt into mellow evenings, castle towns give way to glitzy marinas and when darkness falls over Albufeira, the heady mix of classy, chic and super-club makes for some of the liveliest nightlife on the continent! And the great news, girls - it's all just a two hour flight from English shores!
Why celebrate with an Albufeira hen party?
Well... there are the shoes for starters...! Not only is Albufeira stonkingly famous for its balmy climate, chilled-out way of life and stunningly beautiful surroundings, but Europe's sunniest locale proudly boasts to anyone who'll listen that 'Portuguese shoes are the sexiest in Europe'! And considering Rihanna's superb collections have walked the world from their Portuguese roots, we think they might be onto something! But step outside the fashion boutiques, ladies, and you'll soon see why Albufeira is a favourite holiday haunt of celebs the world over. Spend lazy days on the beach, crazy nights in the lively clubs (don't forget VIP Nightclub Entry and skip the queues), shop till you drop among the vibrant market stalls and let your hair down with fun and frolics on the water! And when it's time to rest sleepy heads, your luxury accommodation in Albufeira is just a few minutes away from that final cocktail beneath the stars.
Albufeira hen party adventures...
The fantastic fusion of chic, calm, crazy and impossibly cool that makes Albufeira so universally popular offers up an incredible selection of hen do activities in Albufeira to fill your Albufeira hen do days. Banana boats and ringos always promise a few giggles out on the water (leave your dignity back at the hotel though, girls!) and nothing says luxury like a glass of vino on the deck of a suitably sleek yacht. Portugal has acres of lush greenery, mountain trails and dense woodland to explore, so why not take the muckiest route possible (of course!) with a mud buggy safari, before heading to the spa to unwind in style? And if you're looking for that something extra special for your fab bride-to-be, then a dolphin cruise has to be one of the most magical experiences you'll ever be privileged enough to enjoy. Laid-back, action-packed or downright classy, hen weekends in Albufeira have it all!
Shopping in Albufeira
Between traditional open-air markets, funky beach stores, quirky boutiques and whopping great malls full to the brim with the mainstream brands we all know and love, you'll have plenty of opportunity to indulge in some well-earned retail therapy on your Albufeira hen do! The Forum Algarve at Faro and Algarve shopping centre in Guia each boast a fantastic selection of high street names like Mango, Zara and H&M, as well as an abundance of restaurants and cafés perfect for you to regroup over a quick bite to eat. But the jewel in the modern shopping crown has to be the impressive Aqua Portimao. With an incredible 35,000 square metres and well over 100 shops to explore, we're pretty sure you won't be leaving empty-handed!
Where Albufeira hen parties head after dark...
From Montechoro's infamous 'strip', packed to the hilt with some of the region's liveliest bars and clubs, to the vibrant waterfront at Albufeira, glamorous Vilamour marina and cobbled streets of Old Town, Albufeira hen nights can be as big and bold, or chic, classy and chilled-out as you like! Beachside bars, buzzing clubs, cocktail lounges, gourmet cuisine - when balmy evenings give way to cool Portuguese nights, you'll have the pick of a brilliantly friendly, diverse and dazzling nightlife. Why not raise a final bubble-filled glass with a delicious slap-up meal at one of the region's finest eateries? Or get glammed-up to the nines, put your best poker face on and head to the casino for some glitzy high-rolling fun? Enjoy VIP access to the hottest clubs in town with our fab q-jump priority, dance till dawn to fresh summer sounds and sip cocktails under warm starry skies.
