Consider the time of year

This will probably depend on when the big day is scheduled, but in our book, any time of year is perfect for a hen party in Malaga! Here in the Costa del Sol capital, we’re blessed with an average of 320 sunny days per year. Obviously Malaga is an international summer hotspot, but it’s just as fun (and much less crowded) in fall and winter. It may not be quite warm enough to swim in the cooler months, but you can still count on beautiful sunny weather for the most part. Be sure to pack accordingly for whenever you come!

Location, location, location!

Malaga and the surrounding towns on the Costa del Sol each have something different to offer, which can come into play when planning your shindig. If you want a truly authentic Spanish experience that will immerse you in culture, Malaga capital is the way to go. Looking for upscale glamour and elegance? You’ll love posh Marbella. And if partying until dawn is the most important item on your agenda, you can’t go wrong with lively Benalmádena. Consider your plans for the event and choose your home base depending on what you have in mind.

When planning a hen party in Malaga, consider where you want your home base to be. Benalmádena is famous for its party culture, while glamorous Marbella is on the upscale side. And of course, Malaga capital is as cultural as it gets!
There are plenty of gems all over the region, but our vote goes to Malaga itself for the perfect home base!

Take time to relax

When planning a hen party in Malaga, it can be tempting to be “on” 100 percent of the time. After all, there’s so much to see and do that you’ll want to take advantage of it all! However, don’t forget to schedule in some time for some well-deserved R&R. If you’re here in summer, maybe that means a chilled-out day at the beach. Coming in cooler weather? Head to the spa or the Arab baths and treat yourselves to a day of pampering. Remember, you’re on vacation!
