This month we are going to head over to the stylish Spanish city of Valencia, famous for its Paella and party lifestyle, to have a look at why it's a great choice of destination for your hen weekend:
When planning a weekend trip it is very important to look at the travel times, especially if you are travelling with a large group all coming from various parts of the country. It is just an hour and a half's flight from London to Valencia and it can be reached from all major British airports via a number of airlines including BA and Easyjet. This means, if booked in advance, cheap tickets can be purchased which will keep costs down for everyone.
One of the best features of Valencia is the all year round sunshine. Temperatures vary throughout the year but the average temperature remains at around 17 degrees, with mild winters and long hot summers. Valencia's coldest month is January and the warmest month is August.
Valencia is known for its beautiful beaches, the main ones to visit are:
This beach is the most accessible beach in the city with a huge host of activities and events going on. There are some fantastic restaurants where you can sample some of the best Spanish cuisine.
This beach is the main beach in Valencia and is usually very busy and bustling with people, complete with a great lively atmosphere.
This beach is less crowded and further out of the city; here you can expect a more tranquil, calm setting. If you would like to escape the hustle and bustle of some of the other neighbouring beaches then this is the one for you to visit.
There is so much to do in Valencia and during your stay it is essential that you try to eat Paella; Valencia is famous for it's Paella, sip an ‘Aqua de Valencia'; Valencia's very own cocktail, a refreshing combination of champagne, vodka, orange juice and gin and you have to visit on of the beautiful beaches.
Once you have relaxed and taken in the sights of Valencia, you must check out the nightlife. There are a few things to consider when partying in Valencia, firstly the big nightclubs are on the outskirts of Valencia so plan your night and be sure you know where you are going.
