Prepare yourselves, ladies! Valencia is the perfect venue for a stunning single life sendoff! We love the way some clever soul split the city party scene into clearly identifiable districts - each with a character all its own.
There are areas for students, bohemians, mainstreamers, hipsters, clubbers and alternative types.
El Barrio del Carmen is a great place to start, with its array of terrace bars, cocktail bars and paella restaurants. This is the place where drinking, dancing and dining combine. Canovas is ideal if you like more mainstream bars and clubs. If you still want that beach break feel with open air discos - head for city beach!
Things to Do
Valencia is the 3rd largest wine producer in the world, so if the bride loves a glass of the good stuff a wine tasting session is most definitely a ‘must-do’. Pair it with an afternoon of sightseeing and you’re in for a fab one. A bike tour with your besties will give you glance at the city’s wonders, including the sci-fi City of Arts and Sciences.
If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a few hours, just to catch up with your girls in the glorious countryside we suggest heading for the hills on a horse riding trek. It’s a stunning way to take in the natural beauty of this glorious city.
Sun worshippers still wanting to do a bit of sightseeing will love a leisurely catamaran cruise. Top up your tans on deck, sip on some bubbly and snap a few pics of the stunning Valencia coastline.
If you’re coming to the area in August you can’t miss out on the world’s biggest food fight, the Tomatina Festival! This is a must do for anyone who loves a good laugh. The locals take to the streets, from balconies and windows and tomatoes are thrown, stomped and everyone has an amazing time. Come on, ladies! It’s brill!
