Every summer deserves an ultimate getaway with your girls. There’s nothing quite like sipping margaritas with your chicas on the beach and taking a break from the boys back home. With so many destinations to choose from, it can be an overwhelming feat to pick the perfect, epic vacay. Luckily, I have compiled a list of the best BFF destinations. So, grab your girl squad and get ready to plan a trip to these top girls trip locations that you won’t soon forget (depending on the alcohol consumption, of course).
Nothing says girls trip quite like island hopping in Greece. With so many stunning islands to choose from, it’s hard to go wrong. Personally, my favorite island is Milos, with highly-rated beaches like Sarakiniko Beach, which feels like another planet due to its stark white rocks.
Santorini is one of the most iconic islands in the world. Famous for its white houses and pink flowers decorating the island, it also offers crystal-clear waters and volcanic, black sand beaches. Just imagine you and your girls sunbathing on one of their iconic beaches or riding horses along the shore.
For the perfect accommodations in the heart of Fira, book a stay at Porto Fira Suites or Porto Fira Villas with your gal pals. Wherever you decide to stay in Santorini, you’re sure to have a view overlooking the island due to its hilly landscape. And a popular activity that would be great for your girlfriends is a Santorini Flying Dress photo shoot.
After visiting Santorini, you can take a ferry over to Mykonos for some party vibes. Mykonos is known for its beachside bars and for its clubs. It is even referred to as the Ibiza of Greece. You can stop by Lindsay Lohan’s club, Lohan Beach House Mykonos. With so many clubs to choose from, the girls are sure to have an epic time. Just make sure to pack some Tylenol for the hangovers!
Bali is always a good idea, especially when the girl squad is involved. This tropical island of Indonesia has gained massive attraction throughout the years, and rightfully so. With so much to offer, from its many waterfalls to epic surf to luxury spas, Bali is at the top of everyone’s list.
When visiting the “island of the gods,” your group can rent an entire stunning pool villa complex like Mahagiri Spa & Villas for $1,000 per night! However, when split, the cost can be as low as $100 per night. It’s the perfect setting for a group of friends, whether you’re more sporty and adventurous or looking for a relaxing spa retreat.
Bali has some of the greatest beaches for surfing in the world, some incredible hikes through the jungle to waterfalls or you can even hunt for ghosts at an abandoned theme park! And the temples, architecture, and food are incredible, too.
For the friend groups that are looking for a little TLC, there are several luxury spas, like those near Ubud Market, that ‘won?’t break the bank. Imagine spending the entire day at the spa and still being able to afford a five-star dinner. Groundbreaking. Also famous for its beach bars, you won’t be short of a cocktail, a party, or a hangover. Bali is the place for anyone looking for luxury on a budget, an adventure or to just live out that island dream.

No girls trip list would be complete without Ibiza. This infamous island is located just off the coast of mainland Spain and can be summed up in two words: beaches and parties. Ibiza is the place to be if you and your girls are looking to party the night away. During the day, you can charter a yacht and enjoy the day out on the water. Make sure to also check out Formentera Beach, which can be easily reached via water taxi.
Of course, Ibiza is not only a place to be for parties. You can also chill in the pool, drinks in hand, at one of the many hotels or seaside restaurants like Kasbah Ibiza, which offers the most stunning views and memorable sunsets. However, if you are in fact there to party, you won’t find a better place than clubs like Amnesia. Ibiza boasts some of the wildest parties, making it perfect for an all-girls getaway.
Every little girl dreams of her wedding day, her kids’ names and Bora Bora. Any girlfriend’s escape should include an overwater bungalow. Nothing says island getaway with the girls quite like it. Surrounded by clear water and picturesque mountains, Bora Bora is the tropical island getaway that the doctor ordered. The island has much to offer including spas, yoga on the beach and epic snorkeling.
Picture this: you have just woken up, you open your door and jump straight into the gorgeous blue water. I honestly can’t think of a better way to wake up. And of course, if the BFFs are looking for an island party, there are several beach clubs and pool parties waiting to welcome you with open arms. Truly the full package, Bora Bora could be the perfect fit for your girlfriend’s summer vacation. For the most luxurious stay, book overwater villas at the St. Regis Bora Bora or the Four Seasons Bora Bora.
