Planning on doing a Lads holiday, from the start of june for a week after GCSEs.
We all plan to drink somehow, so france or turkey would probably be the best bet for laws.
We have looked at Alicante and are happy with that but are unsure about the legislation.
There are 5x16 year olds, and a 15 y/o.
Anyone know the best, affordable places to go on holiday?
Would want to be somewhere nice and sunny if possible; access to the beach and town; access to supermarkets; not a ****hole.
Thanks for reading

If you’re wanting to drink countries like Belgium allow the purchase of ciders and beers at 16, I went there at 16 and it was very nice. You will likely have trouble finding accommodation with the 15 year old. Most hotels don’t take people under 18 but hostels do and you can find hostels which are basically like hotels. I’m unsure if hostels take people under 16 without an adult though

Third party bookings aren’t allowed, and anyone hosting for people under 18 arent eligible to any claims or insurance through the company if there’s damages. Therefore they aren’t going to accept your request as it could potentially be very risky for them.

Many independent hostels won’t accept guests under 18, especially if they are party hostels with on site bars.

Maybe not all but in most tourist cities you’ll be able to find a couple youth hostels which allow 16+
