Bachelorette parties are the perfect opportunity to gather your girlfriends and board a flight to a sunny destination with beautiful beaches. There are various Caribbean islands that have everything a bride-to-be needs to make unforgettable memories with her best friends while enjoying a luxurious island getaway.
These are 10 of the best spots in the Caribbean to celebrate a friend’s impending nuptials.
10 Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Punta Cana is the ideal destination for a bachelorette party. Located in the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana is an idyllic spot with plenty of upscale resorts to choose from, but it's also a budget-friendly destination.
All-inclusive vacation packages here are generally more affordable than those in other parts of the Caribbean, allowing the bridal party to enjoy 5-star accommodation, unlimited food and drinks, and exciting excursions for a reasonable price.
9 Providenciales, Turks And Caicos
Providenciales is an island in the Turks and Caicos archipelago that is the primary destination for travelers visiting this beautiful Caribbean destination.
The white sandy beaches and strikingly blue waters here are a perfect backdrop for a girls trip. The group can have fun hanging out at a beachside villa or snorkeling on the island’s reefs, Smith’s Reef and Bight Reef.
Travelers can stay at a resort or simply rent an apartment or villa near the beach and dine at local restaurants or cook meals in their accommodation.
Aruba is an island nation that belongs to the Kingdom of the Netherlands, therefore using Dutch as an official language.
The highest-rated resorts in Aruba tend to be more costly than destinations like the Dominican Republic, Cuba, or Jamaica so bridal parties looking to have a lavish getaway here will need a bigger budget.
The island has many sandy beaches to relax and a gorgeous nature area to explore, called Arikok National Park.
7 Montego Bay, Jamaica
Jamaica has many resort towns to visit including Negril, Ochos Rios, and Kingston. However, Montego Bay is perhaps the best choice for a bachelorette party because of the lively nightlife, bars, and variety of options for where to dance the night away.
Specifically, Pier 1 is the spot that comes alive at night and is where visitors can enjoy music and a great social atmosphere.
There are also plenty of all-inclusive resorts in Montego Bay that can fit into a tight budget.
6 San Juan, Puerto Rico
San Juan is the capital of Puerto Rico and as the largest city on the island, it’s the ideal place to book accommodation for an unforgettable bachelorette weekend, even in winter.
By day, the group can explore the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan and take aesthetic group photos, while by night they can dance at local clubs, hang out at lively bars, or have some fun at the casinos.
5 Paradise Island, The Bahamas
For a budget friendly bachelorette party that doesn't compromise on turquoise waters and fun things to do, Paradise Island in the Bahamas is a great choice.
This small island is connected to Nassau (on New Providence) by bridge, allowing the group to book cheap flights into the nation’s capital from Canada or the US.
Although there is plenty to do in downtown Nassau, travelers will also find lots of bars, entertainment, and clubs, such as Aura Nightclub, right on Paradise Island near their hotels.
Bermuda is an overseas British Territory in the Caribbean with stunning blue waters and pink sand beaches.
Groups celebrating a bachelorette party can have fun during the daytime relaxing at beaches like Elbow Beach and Tobacco Bay or exploring the incredible Crystal and Fantasy Caves. By night, groups can enjoy entertainment put on by their resorts.
3 St. Lawrence Gap, Barbados
Barbados is an ideal destination for hosting a bachelorette party that’s full of sun, sand, and surf. The water is clear, the beaches are pristine, and there are plenty of resorts to choose from.
However, for bride tribes that love to party and dance all night long, the best place to stay is near the neighborhood of St. Lawrence Gap.
This area, affectionately referred to as “The Gap”, is well known for its lively nightlife and high-class dining.
2 Cayo Coco, Cuba
Escape to Cuba for a bachelorette party the group will never forget. Rather than staying on mainland Cuba, book an all-inclusive resort on the island of Cayo Coco.
Flight prices there are often more affordable from North America compared to Varadero or Havana. There are lots of resorts with gorgeous beaches and nightly entertainment to choose from.
This is a great pick for a group of girls who want a low-key, relaxing bachelorette weekend by the beach on a budget.
1 Willemstad, Curaçao
Another island nation belonging to the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Curaçao is a charming Caribbean destination that offers a taste of Dutch life with some of the best beaches in the Caribbean. Temperatures are warm, and the weather is sunny year round, meaning there’s never a bad time visit.
The capital city, Willemstad, is where bridal groups will find the best restaurants, clubs, and bars for living it up on their getaway.
However, the quaint city on the water features colorful homes in Dutch-style architecture that are reminiscent of those seen along the canals in Amsterdam.
It’s an extremely picturesque spot, which is sure to appeal to the bride-to-be.
