Sometimes all you need is to put your adult life on hold, and escape from the everyday responsibilities. And who’s a better partner in crime for that than your besties? If you can’t remember how the last time you went on a trip together looked like; then it’s time for a mini escape, asap! Apart from the good vibes, obviously, you need a well-packed suitcase. Usually that suitcase is larger than the number of days you are staying; but hey, at least your weekend getaway can officially start. So, grab your passport, pack some nice summer essentials and leave in style. Here are some of the most perfect girls weekend destinations you and your besties would certainly love, and yes, you are welcome.
Girls Weekend Destinations: Amazing architecture and shops
Being one of the most visited cities in Europe, this Catalonian beauty will make you fall in love as soon as you get there. Barcelona offers plenty of beautiful sightseeing points, and Park Guell happens to be one of them. It’s a unique, enchanting place composed of parks and architectonic elements and it’s perfect for an afternoon walk. This exceptional masterpiece was designed by Antoni Gaudi, a Catalan architect. Thanks to this guy, you will also get to see the most popular unfinished Roman Catholic church, Sagrada Familia.
Also, don’t forget to take a stroll on the most famous La Rambla street, and stop for a coffee and a fresh gossip. Although it can get pretty crowded when it’s top season, that can’t prevent you and your girls from finding the best shopping areas. What’s more, if you are a fan of walking through a glassed-in tunnel with sharks and unusual fish, then the Barcelona Aquarium can bring you some fun times.
The ultimate escape
Bedarra Island, Queensland, Australia
If private beach picnics and uninhabited islands are your thing, then there is no doubt that Bedarra Island can fulfill your dreams. Its turquoise water and lean palm trees will bring you peace and serenity. This magical Island offers you a lot of sunset drinks and dinner parties. If you don’t plan to be barefoot for most of the time, then you are probably overdressed. But, you will need plenty of bikinis to complement your tropical look. If you are having a hard time searching for the most perfect pieces, then there are a couple of websites where you can purchase gorgeous designer swimwear from Australia, just to ensure your holiday is Instagram-worthy as well.
If you want to pamper yourselves with breathtaking beachfront views, then The Beach House is a perfect villa to stay in. The name speaks for itself, and it’s located amongst the palm trees and rainforests. It’s the ultimate paradise on earth.
Sugary white sand and summer breeze
The amazing sandy beaches, pristine water and endless bliss. Yes, it’s Aruba I’m referring to and it’s a perfect getaway for the girls who know how to YOLO. Aruba offers you the ultimate beach fun, spa treatments and a little shopping therapy. Eagle Beach is the most famous beach in Aruba and it’s a home to fofoti trees, more often seen on Instagram than in real life.
The crystal clear water has the power to make you never want to get out; and it’s perfect for the snorkeling fans as well. We say you forget about your flamingo floaties, because you can actually make friends with the real ones! You must know that if you want to pet and take selfies with these exotic birds; you must plan in advance, since they are not an attraction open to the public. And if you really can’t leave the Island without saying hi to one of these lovely creatures, you can buy a daily pass for $99 and visit the Renaissance Island, owned by the Renaissance Hotel, where the flamingos are inhabited. Plus, if you happen to be there in mid-to-late June, you will get a chance to witness the beautiful experience of a baby turtle hatching.
Although these much needed girls’ getaways happen once in a blue moon; we must take some days off to indulge with our soulmates. This is how we collect memories and cherish them for the rest of our lives.
