Friends’ getaway: 2 idyllic destinations

When your friends tell you that they want to plan a friends’ getaway in summer…the first thing that comes to my mind is the film “The Hangover”, in which 4 friends travel to destinations like  Las Vegas or Bangkok, where they enjoy crazy parties and in the morning they cannot remember what happened the night before.

What happens at night should stay at night. We don’t want you to experience the same issues, but we want your group of friends to live the most entertaining holidays. If you choose an entertaining destination and a comfortable hotel offering you a wide range of activities and services, car rental to explore the place and cold beers at sunset, your personal The Hangover could be your best year plan.

Friends’ getaway destinations in summer

Lanzarote

BIO: two and a half hours flight from Madrid. Older sister of Fuerteventura. Impressive beaches. Quiet atmosphere. It’s perfect for relaxing, chill out and exclusive getaways. It’s a trendy destination for cool people.

If you are a  bit of a freak, you would love to visit the places in the island where some scenes of movies like “Journey to the centre of the Earth”, “Doctor Who” or “Mararia” were filmed. … You will feel like an astronaut visiting the Moon.

Travelling with your friends to Lanzarote and forget daily routines, stress and responsibilities is a fantastic idea. The island has lots of secret spots where to get lost and just sunbathe, swim and drink a beer at a small island like La Graciosa with unspoilt beaches.

Accommodation in Ibiza?

Choose a well-connected place so you can reach any interesting point in the island, but avoid nightlife areas. The north of the island is a great choice: it’s not too crowded and you will love its natural beauty. You will then combine amazing parties with relax on your holiday break.

We recommend you to choose hotels offering activities you can enjoy without leaving it, so you can combine them with your plans outside the hotel. A great example is  Ole Galeon Ibiza, a hotel with rooms at the beach of San Miguel  by Ole Hotels offering All Inclusive board and usually oriented to families who want to have fun and forget daily routines.
