Before there’s a big day, there’s a big night. One last night before the end of your freedom, one last night before you’re perpetually tied to the love of your life. Nowadays, bachelor and bachelorette parties have become almost stereotypically ridiculous in their wild and raucous fashion, filled with strip clubs, bars and burlesque shows. For those of you who want a classy, unique or even relaxed day out with your closest friends instead, fear not! We’ve compiled a list of the most unique bachelor and bachelorette parties around. From a trip to a winery to a pampered day at the spa, you’ll have a night—or day—to remember.

The Hornblower

Two words: private yacht. Have you always dreamed of sailing the high seas with your best buds, sipping champagne and admiring the endless horizon? There’s no better time to make that dream a reality than on one of your last days of freedom. The Hornblower’s cachet of private yachts is ready to take your bachelor or bachelorette party to the water for a three hour adventure! Board and savor the taste of champagne and hors d’oeuvre, then choose from Black Jack or Texas hold’em, a Coronado scavenger hunt, blind wine tasting game or limo service to the Gaslamp. A chartered yacht is the perfect way to start your party off with a bang or just to enjoy those sweet hours of premarital bliss.  

Coronado Island

We can’t discuss San Diego bachelor parties without recommending a beach experience! By far, the best beach location for an all–day bachelor or bachelorette party affair is Coronado Island. Sequestered away from the mainland, Coronado offers a cozy bubble of fun activities designed to keep the party going. Home to a myriad of gorgeous parks and beaches, Coronado Island boasts something for everyone. Spend the day laying out on the beach, soaking up the rays. Surf or snorkel in the cool ocean water. Rent a sailboat or catamaran for the day through local companies like Aola Catamaran or Action Sports. Need a break from the outdoor mayhem? Swing by the Hotel Del Coronado to grab a drink and relax at the bar. Coronado is the perfect spot for any outdoorsy brides or grooms to host their dream pre–wedding parties!

Rancho Bernardo Golf Course

Rancho Bernardo Inn Golf Course

Not everyone likes a rough and rowdy bachelor party filled with bar–hopping and debauchery. For a refined and relaxed afternoon with your friends, tee off at the Rancho Bernardo Inn Golf Course. This 18–hole championship golf course is the premiere San Diego golf course to visit. Recently renovated, the Rancho Bernardo Inn Golf Course has previously hosted PGA and LPGA events. Dress up in your finest slacks, break out your clubs and spend your last days of freedom aiming for that flawless hole–in–one! Prices for the Rancho Bernardo Inn Golf Course range from $50–$90 per person, with Resort Club members receiving a discount. A day of golf is a great bachelor party idea for smaller groups; the Rancho Bernardo Inn recommends parties of 5 or fewer.
