Situated in the Algarve, on the South coast of Portugal, you can expect the usual fun seaside frivolity in this destination - but it also has an ace up its sleeve. Do something different from a stag weekend in Barcelona, Magaluf or Amsterdam in this fun-loving seaside city.
Stuck for ideas, but know that the stag enjoys a round or two on the fairway? You're in luck. Portugal is one of the premier destinations for Golf in Europe. It attracts amateurs and pros alike thanks to her fantastic selection of courses. This place is a stunner for celebrating with a golf nut. Imagine teeing off against a back drop of swaying palm trees, whitewashed fishing villages, castles and spectacular cliffs. Follow it up with a round of beers in the evening and you've got the perfect way to wave goodbye to the single life. Get your clubs ready, and swap Ol' Blighty's cloudy skies for the azure blue of Portugal.
Golf isn't the only activity you can get stuck into in Albufeira. The nightlife scene in this buzzing resort is a little firecracker. Think drink deals and happy hours! There is no shortage of popular bars and cheap booze to fill your evening hours. Grab the lads and get down to the watering holes that line the (notorious) Strip. Need to prove your staying power by clubbing it 'til the sun comes up? This place might look like a quiet fishing village but it's famous for boozing and schmoozing 24/7!
Algarve has got almost every activity under the sun to make your weekend exciting - from thrilling waters sports to laid back golfing sessions to the good old bar crawling.
1. Wet and Wild Adventures
If your stag loves adventure, you've come to the right place. Albufeira gives you the much needed thrill in the best way possible. Boasting a number of beaches, there is no dearth of watersports in the city.
Want to catch an aerial view of the expansive coastlines of Albufeira? Head to the Albufeira Marina for a Parasailing experience. While it gives you a sense of thrill and a stunning view of the city, chances are you might also spot a dolphin or two leaping out of the water.
Have the need for speed? Hop on to a speed boat and cruise through the ocean. Add some competitive spirit to the activity and race the lads to the coast.
You can also go Banana Boat Riding, Kayaking, Waterskiing, Ribbing or Surfing on your Albufeira stag do.
2. Beach BBQ Cruise
Soak up the sun with a BBQ on the beach followed by a boat cruise. Perfect to get rid of that hangover, this stag activity combines luxury and good old fashioned chilling. Have a drink or two at the beach to toast for the groom's new chapter, and then head to a hidden cove to fire up the grills and make yourself a scrumptious BBQ meal. A guide with all the knowledge of the city's coastlines will escort you at all times in a private vessel, so don't worry about losing your way. Just take a dip in the ocean and let the balmy sea breeze rejuvenate you.
3. Hole In One
Nothing pulls the crowd to Algarve more than Golf. The city has impressive courses, including the famous Oceanico courses which have the Old Course- home of the Portuguese Masters.
If you're looking for a grown up men's sport, Golf is just the game for you. The activity is a perfect opportunity for some bonding, so don't fret if you aren't a pro at swinging your club.
After the game, head to the club for a nice lunch and drinks and prepare yourselves for the wild night ahead.
