Zante Stag and Hen do's
Zante is a popular choice for weddings and of course the wedding party’s that go with them aka stag and hen do’s.
You couldn’t ask for a better resort than Zante for fun and frolics so here we give some tips for how to make some amazing memories with friends and family.
The Ultimate Party
With a wild Wet T- Shirt competition, fun party games, 3 hours of unlimited alcohol and an unrivalled party atmosphere this should be top of the list for every Stag and Hen party who visit Zante. Importantly, the Ultimate is the only event running for the first 3 weeks of the season which is roughly May 1st to 21st and the last two weeks of September. So, if you choose Zante for a stag or hen do during the quiet time of the season then the Ultimate Party is basically your only choice for a party. This is our number one tip for a wild night out in Laganas any time of the season, nobody leaves sober and a great party atmosphere is guaranteed.
Expect filthy games and even filthier cocktails on a daytime booze cruise in Zante which you can buy from local ticket shops and street sellers. Most involve some form of body paint and will include a free bar or free shots for an hour, usually a cheap ‘cocktail shot’ or raki. Enjoy games like swimsuit swapping, blowing up condoms on the head and other one on one activities involving whipped cream, cat food or chocolate bars. The booze cruises are not so popular with girls in recent years because ladies know if they unleash their inner slut and suck off Barry from Doncaster it will go viral on social media within a few seconds so all the fun has gone out of booze cruises for girls.For this reason we don’t recommend a booze cruise for hen party’s as what happens on the boat may not stay on the boat in this day and age and future husbands might not be too impressed with the antics.
However, beers, booze and boats is never a bad shout for a stag do activity and although the lads will heavily outnumber any ‘ladies’ onboard, you can’t really go wrong. Booze cruises usually start late June and run though July.
VVIP Yacht Party
Very popular with stag and hen do’s this is a great shout for a more sophisticated and stylish boat party experience. Hosted on a large, 3-tier yacht which makes for some great photo’s, VVIP is widely regarded as one of the best boat party’s in Europe taking up to 300 people out to sea 5 times a week during peak season. No games are played on this boat party the focus is on quality music and a great atmosphere. VVIP set sail around 5pm so expect more of an Ibiza style vibe as you enjoy a stunning Zante sunset with a lively party going off. VVIP offer a Platinum package which includes a reserved table on the top deck, waitress service, drinks package and Ciroc shots which is well worth a look at, however you will need to reserve early if you want one of these. Check out VVIP’s website here. Book direct by emailing email@example.com as if you are a large group you may be able to wangle a discount.
The White Party
Running the first Sunday in June through to mid September this has to be a great shout for the perfect stag or hen do night out. Hosted at the stunning Republic Beach Club, The White Party is the biggest and most famous party in Zante attracting international chart topping DJ’s like Camelphat, Gorgon City, MK, Hannah Wants and Sonny Fodera to name but a few. Drawing huge crowds all dressed in white and with an outdoor festival style vibe enhanced by dancers, musicians and flame throwers The White Party should be on the bucket list of everyone who visits the island. We would highly recommend a VIP option here, either the balcony pass, a cabana or bed by the pool.
Book this event along with VVIP Sunset Yacht Party via www.a-liszante.com who offer both events in their Zante Essentials Package 2021
Foam or Paint Party
If getting messy is of appeal then a foam or paint party could be a good shout for a fun night out. The Foam Party at Zero’s club is always a wild night, or next door at Rescue Club one of the largest paint party’s in Europe takes place every Wednesday night drawing a huge crowd. However, the pick has to be the Danny T Paint Party which gives you the messy, jump around and lose your inhibitions sort of vibe, but with some quality music thrown in for good measure..
Danny T is an A-List Zante event and can be purchased in their Zante 2021 Events Package
VIP Club Night
There are 4 big clubs which could offer a decent VIP experience, Waikiki probably the pick during peak season, although doesn’t open until 1/2am at which point a stag party who’ve been boozing all day might not be feeling like a 3 litre bottle of Ciroc. Rescue Club, Zero’s also accommodate for VIP tables, another good option would be Plus Club which has an outside VIP terrace overlooking the Strip so a good place to people watch.
So, that’s a good selection for some nightlife ideas for Stag and Hen do’s in Zante, however by day we have a few fun suggestions too.
This is officially the most fun you can have in Zante and is a must-do day out for every stag and hen do holiday. Roar around on Jet-ski’s, absolutely sh** yourself on the Ringo’s and the Flying Fish or if you’re not feeling so brave try the Banana Boat or Crazy Sofa. All in all this is a great day out with a group of friends and the beach is also very nice with decent food, cabana’s, volleyball court and a really cool beach bar.
A hefty discount on this activity is available with every VVIP Yacht Party ticket you save about 25 euro per person. VVIP Yacht Party Tickets are here
Private Speedboat Hire
A simply genius idea for a fun stag or hen do activity in Zante has to be hiring your own speedboat for the afternoon and cruising round the Bay of Laganas. Designate a spotter to keep an eye out for the beautiful logger head turtles, enjoy wonderful snorkelling and have an adventure worthy of the Famous Five by visiting Turtle island and exploring the caves.
You can easily book this in Zante, expect to pay 30 euro per head for around 3 hours.
Navagio Beach aka Shipwreck beach is an iconic destination and for good reason. It really is a stunning spot with crystal clear waters that twinkles as the sun shines on it. It’s never a bad idea to go out on a boat cruising round Zante, however Shipwreck is VERY popular. Mid day, several huge boats will arrive and over 1,000 people will disembark and mooch about on the beach, which in our very educated opinion, takes the shine off the experience somewhat. Fear not, we have a cunning plan which involves an early morning, private boat, considerably faster than the huge daily cruisers which will get you to the beach way before the hordes arrive. Obviously, you pay a premium but it’s well worth it. Nefis Travle or Luxury Island Events can arrange this trip for you.
