Nightlife for a stag do in October


My friends and I are planning a stag do for a group of 16 blokes in their late 20s / early 30s. We are looking at 26th September or 3rd October. Will there be any difference between the 2 dates in terms of how busy it is of a night time? We don't want to turn up for the strip to be fairly quiet and I'm worried it won't be busy at that time of year.

Can you advise?

Also, are there any beach parties at that time of year you can recommend?

Thank you so much for your help.

The resort both ends, New town or Old town will still be busy. Not sure about beach parties, maybe other members can advise. Where are you thinking of staying, old or new town?

Thanks, we're hoping to stay in a villa somewhere central. we just want to be certain that if we go with either of those dates that it wont be quiet / average. Bearing in mind its a stag do, we want a location which will be busy - especially in bars and club(s).

You may find that you pay a higher rate for September than October ... but everything will be reasonably busy.

Travel Republic is offering a great deal at the small Cantinho do Mar (central area) £270 for three days from Sep 26 .. thats 3 x 2-bedroom apts for 6 x 5 x 5 ... transfers from Faro are around £12 return per person, though you may get a better deal for the party. Pick your own flights .. .

If you go to Travel Republic, make sure you visit bottom of the preferences column, select Albufeira and bring the distance slider down to 3 kilometres.

October is a great time for a stag do, take a look at the Vilanova Villas, right on the strip and ideal for stags/hens

I agree with Ray B, Villa Nova is ideal for Stags/Hens, right on the strip, ten min walk to beach. Also they welcome stag and hen parties so you won't be in a family oriented area. Many of the Villa companies and private villa rentals refuse single sex groups.
