Top Party Destinations for Single Men
Ibiza, Spain, remains the party capital of the world. If you’re in the mood to dance the night away and have the time of your life, then we couldn’t recommend Ibiza highly enough. Some of the best DJs in the world populate the clubs, the beaches are superb and the vibe is one of an endless party. Just in case you decide to do, here is a handy calendar of all of Ibiza’s club parties.
Ibiza is also a wonderful surf spot, but make sure you go there in the winter time, that’s when the rad waves are happening. In the summer, the waves are quite chill, so we recommend a little bit of stand-up paddling (SUP) or kitesurfing if you’re still up for it after all that partying!
Munich and Berlin, Germany
Berlin, Germany has some of the best party scenes in the world. Hedonists from all over the world come to Berlin to have a great time and meet like-minded party folks. Some of the best clubs include Berghain (a former power station), Bar 25 (complete with dance and cabaret areas, as well as rooms that you can rest onsite), Tresor (dating back from ‘88) and Cookies.
Once that is done, how about you head over to Munich, which is known as the Mecca of river surfing, to do some spectacular river? The already famous Eisbach is a 2 kilometers long man-made river that flows through the Englischer Garten park. What is truly awesome about this river is the man-made wave has been surfers all over the world flocking to it. Germany has it all, awesome river surfing and a one of a kind party scene!
Koh Pha Ngan, Thailand
Ko Pha Ngan is the perfect destination if you want to hit up one of the most famous parties in the world, the Full Moon Party. The party takes place once a month when the moon is full and it gathers between 10,000 and 30,000 people monthly. So, if you want to join one of the biggest parties in the world, go to Thailand and get ready to take wild partying to another level.
During the day, you can recharge your batteries by doing some light surfing in Thailand, one of the best surfing destinations in the world!
Top Relaxing Destinations for Single Men
What better way to relax than to take a dip in the ocean, soak up the sun on a white sand beach and drink a fancy cocktail under the shade of a palm tree? This is what dreams are made of and it has a name: Boracay Island in the Philippines. The most popular spots include White Beach and Bulabog Beach. The island recently got an airport, which means that it is easier to get there, so hurry up and relax in style!
Boracay is also a stunning kitesurfing destination, filled with lots of surf schools where you can improve your kitesurfing skills and meet like-minded people.
I celand is such a stunning destination, perfect for those seeking serenity and relaxation. But Landmannalaugar, in particular, is a location that will make you let out a big sigh of relief. You can hike and take in the scenery, or you can relax while soaking in hot springs, heated by the lava that lies underneath them. No matter what you choose to do, you’ll be leaving Landmannalaugar much more relaxed than when you came.
Sacred Valley, Peru
The Sacred Valley in Peru is steeped in history. You’ll find Inca ruins that you can explore during the day and lovely spas and spiritual centers, where you can unwind in the evenings. The city of Urubamba, in particular, nestled between the peaks of the Andes, is home to various relaxations centers. We recommend the Tambo Del Inka Resort & Spa Valle Sagrado, for a lovely and relaxing spa experience.
Top Sports Destinations for Single Men
If surfing truly is your poison, then a surfing holiday is what you need! And what better place for surfing, than the best surfing destination in the world, Hawaii? Oahu ranks at the top of every great surfing destinations list and we recommend the following beaches for some rad surfing sessions: the Banzai Pipeline, Sandy Beach, Waimea Bay, Backdoor, and White Plains Beach. But there are plenty more awesome surfs spots in Hawaii, where you can surf almost all year round!
St. Moritz, Switzerland
If winter sports is what makes your heart beat faster, then we recommend St. Moritz, in Switzerland. It is the perfect place for an adrenaline junkie, as the city is home to the Cresta Run, a toboggan where you can reach speeds of up to 140 km per hour on your sleigh. You can also ski, bob and do all of the wonderful winter sports.
La Seu d’Urgell, Spain
La Seu d'Urgell is located in Spain in the Catalan Pyrenees. This city is perfect for sports enthusiasts, as it has a long sports history and it was even awarded the status of Sports Tourism Destination in 2006. La Seu d’Urgell is a center for whitewater canoeing and Segre Olympic Park is just the place to satisfy your hunger for whitewater.
The Must-See 2017 Destination for Single Men – Cuba
What makes Cuba so special that you simply must visit it in 2017? The fact that the American-Cuban diplomatic ties have been resumed and the U.S. have finally opened up an embassy in Cuba in 2015 after 38 years of operating under the auspices of the Swiss Embassy. Cuba is a stunning place, rich in history, with lovely colonial buildings, chic boutique hotels, and wonderful beaches.
