A Spanish hot spot has returned to the fold for a place in the top ten destinations for stag parties to head to, according to figures.
Benidorm made a welcome return in 2017 for one of the most popular locations for British stag groups, the first time since 2013. The party capital of the Costa Blanca offers groups the chance to drink cheap alcohol in some of the warmest climates available at a low price.
The golden beaches of Spain have knocked UK destinations off the lists with Liverpool, Bournemouth and Nottingham being replaced by the likes of the Spanish coastal town. The only UK city to retain its place on the list is Newcastle.
The lists, which has been published by UK based stag company Last Night of Freedom, has been generated through sales of their weekend packages.
Matt Mavir, managing director of Last Night of Freedom, said: “Over the years we have seen Marbella and Barcelona become popular with stag and hen parties. However more are deciding to head to the Costa Blanca for a weekend in the sun.
“The sunny beaches of Spain is a real draw for stags. Benidorm offers everything from exotic weather, great activities and an even better nightlife.”
In comparison to Madrid, Barcelona and Marbella, Benidorm in the most enquired about destination for stag and hen weekends in 2018 so far across Europe. With that, Last Night of Freedom is expecting the coastal town to place higher in this year’s edition.
