Spring is an ideal time for a girls getaway in Europe. Hotels, flights, and tours are more affordable and you don’t have to deal with the summer crowds. There is nothing quite like a vacation in Europe with your girlfriends during one of the prettiest seasons of the year!
Think of days exploring European cities, wine tasting, lounging on uncrowded beaches, dancing at beach clubs, or hiking, skiing or snowboarding in the mountains.
With so many fabulous spring girls getaway destinations to choose from it can be hard to decide where to go. In this article, we round up the best girls getaway destinations in Europe to help you choose a fabulous spot for your spring vacation with your besties.
1) Bodrum, Turkey
The Bodrum Peninsula sits on Turkey’s southwest coast on the Aegean Sea. It is easily accessible from Istanbul and has long been a summer destination for wealthy Turkish travelers.
In recent years, Bodrum has become an international hot spot for celebrities and the jet-setting elite who flock here in the summer months to vacation on the beautiful Turkish Riviera.
Bodrum is similar to St. Barts or St. Tropez but much more affordable and without the snobbery. Food, drinks, beach clubs, and shopping can be pricey at the luxury hotels in Bodrum but it’s still cheaper than many luxury destinations, and if you visit in the spring it can be very affordable.
If you want to avoid the crowds and score better prices on hotels I suggest visiting Bodrum in May when the weather is great. Flights to Bodrum and hotel prices are much cheaper in spring or fall, most places are open, and the weather is ideal, averaging 80°F in May.
If you’re looking for a new luxury seaside destination to visit in Europe with your girls, you should definitely consider booking a trip to Bodrum!

- Explore Bodrum by Boat – There’s no better way to explore the Bodrum than by boat. Grab your girls and spend a day at sea. You can rent a private yacht for your group at great prices in Bodrum or you can do a group boat tour which is very affordable.
