From bars catering to every budget and taste to exquisite dining options, not to mention those breathtaking sunsets, beautiful coves with turquoise waters, and the chill atmosphere that the Mediterranean offers.


Are you and your girlfriends gearing up for the next hen party? Well, you've come to the right place because we've got a ton of ideas and suggestions to help you craft the perfect hen party in Ibiza.

When is the best time to go to Ibiza for a hen party?

Typically, weddings tend to happen between spring and autumn, so from April onwards, when the weather starts getting nice, you'll start seeing hen and stag groups cropping up around the island. After Easter, rainy days are few and far between in the Balearics, so you can pretty much count on good weather for all sorts of activities. Plus, the first clubs start opening up, and that's always a must for nights of fun.

Why is Ibiza the perfect choice for bidding farewell to singledom?

April and May are the ideal times to snag those cheaper flights from budget airlines and take advantage of hotel opening promotions. At Ryans, for example, we always roll out some killer accommodation deals at the start of the season.


By the last weekend of April, clubs are already open, beach clubs too, and the port and promenade in Ibiza are buzzing with activity. So, at the beginning of the season, there's already enough going on to keep most hen parties entertained, although during peak season, the options are practically endless. However, it's true that leaving it too late to plan and find accommodation for a group in the middle of summer can be tricky and very expensive.

How to get around the island?

Once you've landed, you'll need to get to your chosen destination. If you're traveling in a group, it might be a good idea to skip taxis and Uber and opt for a private transfer like a minibus. It doesn't cost much more than taking several taxis, and it ensures a smooth start to your hen party trip in Ibiza, arriving together and in style at your accommodation.


If you're also planning to explore different parts of the island, consider renting one or more cars and picking them up at the airport. There are plenty of car rental companies right in the terminal, but be sure to book in advance to avoid any surprises.

Hen parties in Ibiza: Where to choose accommodation?

The liveliest tourist spots for hen parties are Playa d'en Bossa and San Antonio, with plenty of activities near the beaches, a wide range of bars and pubs, and a very entertaining nightlife. Choosing a location with everything within reach is a huge advantage, as most places will be within walking distance, saving you from relying on transportation.


Ibiza offers a wide range of accommodation options. In recent years, adult-exclusive hotels have become popular among groups looking for fun. That's the case with all Ryans hotels; we've got spaces for leisure or relaxation, arcade machines, pools, restaurants, ping-pong tables, foosball for 10 players… Depending on the location, at Ryans, we can offer you everything you need to keep the party going.


In San Antonio and its surroundings, you have beaches, clubs, pubs, bars, shops, and a long promenade that runs along the bay.


Playa d'en Bossa also offers plenty of beach, pool parties, a wide variety of lively bars for pre-drinks, exotic beach clubs, and some of the island's most famous clubs, although this might be reflected in the higher accommodation prices.

A perfect hen night in Ibiza

If there's one thing Ibiza is known for, it's the party scene, so of course, you've got plenty of options to choose from. Your choice will depend on the group's overall tastes. For more information on the island's clubs and their opening parties this season, check out our articles on “Ibiza Openings: What to Expect in the 2024 Season” on the blog.


If you're a large group, it's best to look for parties with great music and a fun atmosphere that everyone will enjoy.


San Antonio is full of bars with good value for money, perfect for getting the party started. The West End has recently changed and now offers a more affordable and safer night out for groups. Places like Rio Ibiza, in the harbor area, can be the perfect meeting point to start planning the rest of the night.


San Antonio's Sunset Strip, a long promenade that borders the town, is ideal for enjoying unforgettable sunsets and cocktails at iconic Ibiza spots: like Café Mambo, Savannah, or Café del Mar, although due to the crowds, it's always advisable to book in advance. A more affordable yet equally good option is Golden Buddha, but be sure to arrive early to snag a table.


To kick off this girls' night, you could start, for example, with a seaside dinner at the WiKi Woo Hotel. If you want a unique atmosphere for drinks and dancing, Pikes Ibiza offers a very peculiar party vibe, with dj sessions, a ball pit, karaoke, and lots of great music.


The other hot spot for a hen night out is Playa d'en Bossa, where you'll find a variety of places for pre-drinks, from the popular Tantra bar to Dunes Ibiza, known for its 2-for-1 cocktails. If you've got a good budget, beach clubs like Beachouse, Nassau Beach Club, Tanit Beach Club, and Coco Beach offer a chic atmosphere.


If you prefer hitting up clubs in Ibiza town, you can't miss the bars around the port and Calle de la Virgen, full of energy. It's a perfect area to put the bride through fun tests and situations.


If you're looking for a unique gastronomic experience, consider dining at El Carnicero or STK Ibiza, both located on the outskirts of the city, offering a dinner and show experience. Although they're not cheap, they can be well worth it for a special occasion.


Looking to hit the clubs? Then you can't miss Eden or Es Paradis in San Antonio, or Ushuaïa in Playa d'en Bossa, especially on Saturday afternoons with ANTS.

Hen parties in Ibiza: Other options

Maybe you're a group that's not into massive parties and mayhem, and that's perfectly okay! The island offers plenty of plans that can be enjoyed without staying out until the wee hours of the morning. Boat parties or private yachts for small groups are other options that often appeal to the more daytime-oriented crowd.


Plus, you can engage in much more adventurous activities like kayaking, snorkeling, horseback riding, or laser tag battles.


In conclusion, Ibiza offers a wide range of experiences for bidding farewell to singledom among friends, from parties to more relaxing activities.
