Making your way around Albufeira is easy peasy - you'll just need to remember that this popular resort is split into two. The Old Town and the vibrant Albufeira Strip, where you and the rest of the girls will be spending most of your time. There's plenty of taxi's available in Albufiera, in addition to a local bus service to get you from A to B. If you fancy it, you could even rent a car, but do remember that the roads in Portugal can be hard to navigate, even for expert drivers! If it's relaxing on the beach that you and the girls are after, then you'll be able to make your way around by foot. As for activities, we'll be able to help out with transfers, as we offer them for most of our hen activities and destinations, making things a real doddle.
If you and the girls are looking for something with a little more character, or just a little off the beaten path, beaches such as Praia da Coelha, Praia do Castelo and Praia do Evaristo don’t get quite as busy as the more popular beaches, and they’re a great way to see all of Albufeira’s expansive coastline - all whilst topping up your tan! As for activities, we've got a great selection of available; from boat parties to quad bikes and parasailing experiences, there's a plentiful variety that you and the rest of the girls will love!
Albufeira boasts a fantastic and laid back beach atmosphere, so pack a few of your favourite bikinis or swimwear, but remember it's a rather casual affair dresswise, so no need to go overboard on the packing front for your lazy beach days. As for the evening, those long hot summer nights are perfect for showing off your tanned pins in a gorgeous dress!
There are loads of great places to eat out in Albufeira, but do remember, that it's customary to tip an additional 10% if you've received good service - tips are not usually added onto the bill and are only comprised of the items that you've drunk or eaten. Like with other countries, the Portuguese are big on politeness, so snapping fingers at waiters and waitresses is a no go (unless you want to be ignored of course!) and a simple 'Please' (por favor or se faz favor) or 'Thank You' (obrigado/obrigada) will go a long way!
If you're looking for a typical souvenir, then why not purchase a 'Rooster of Barcelos'? The rooster is the symbol of Portugal (and Nandos) and this type of souvenir is considered to bring good luck to anyone receiving them.
If you're looking for a good time, then you won't be disappointed with the fantastic choice of nightlife on offer in Albufeira. The Strip (Avenida Sà Carneiro, running through both Montechoro and Areias de São João) is where the night-time hen antics start and is the heart of Albufeira's electric party scene. Expect a brilliant array of restaurants, clubs and themed pubs and bars, where you'll be able to enjoy some nice cheap drinks and party right through to the early hours! The Northern part of the strip is somewhat quieter and is the place to go to check out designer clothing boutiques, wine shops and sunglasses stores. The southern part is far more typical for your big last night of freedom. Bars serve giant exotic cocktails while the dancefloors provide plenty of space for you to show off. This is where those unforgettable moments will be taking place on your Albufeira hen weekend!
Make sure that you book both your evening eveing activities like bar and club entry through Hen Heaven, as we'll ensure that you and the girls enjoy the best of what Albufeira has to offer - we won't be sending you off to any mediocre clubs, that's for sure!
