Stuck for Barcelona stag do ideas? You could sit on your arse on the beach all weekend but that would be a damn shame. This is a coastal city jam-packed with seriously cool sh*t. Get the boys out of bed, steer clear of the bars for a few hours and find out why Spain's second city is often mistaken for her first.

Camp Nou Stadium Tour

If the groom's a football fanatic, a Barcelona stag do without a trip to the hallowed Camp Nou would be incredibly bad form. It's in the city centre so it really would be rude not to take the stadium tour.  Check out the changing rooms, players' tunnel, dugouts, press room, commentators box and the museum.

Beach bar crawl

The city's beach bar scene is arguably the best in Spain. In the afternoon, head over to Barceloneta beach and do the beach bar crawl. Hit chiringuitos and lounges overlooking the ocean. This is a must on any stag do in Barcelona.

Yacht charter

Don't automatically assume yacht charter in Barcelona is out of your price range. We own a number of motor yachts and charter them at decent prices. Saunter over to Port Olimpic and join the ranks of Ambramovich et al. Average cruise time is 2hrs. We'll even throw in a few bottles of cava so you can toast the man of the hour.

Check out Barcelona's trippiest building

Far be it from us to suggest that a Barcelona stag do turn into a culture-heavy weekend. That said, you genuinely can't leave without standing slack-jawed at the entrance to the Sagrada Familia. Mad artist Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece – under construction since 1882 and STILL in progress - will impress even the biggest philistine.

Try jet skiing

Forget the tame jet skiing sessions on lakes back in Blighty. In Barcelona, you can blast across the ocean at speed! If you're new to the sport, book a beginner session and master the art of controlling a jet bike or blaster.
