Ideal Locations For A Sophisticated Boys Holidays.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Is your idea of a boys holiday staying in a classy hotel and living the high life? If so, you may be looking for an alternative to the traditional lads and stags locations. If you’re eager to enjoy a touch of luxury, or you simply fancy a change of scenery, here are some ideas to inspire you:
A perennial pleaser in the stag weekend stakes, Amsterdam also has a serious side. Avoid the tourist hot spots and appreciate the architecture and culture. Visit in spring or summer for pleasant climes and take advantage of the swanky bars and fine dining joints. Hit the roads on a push bike to explore and enjoy the hospitality of the locals.
Lanzarote holidays are all about sun, sea and splashing around. The livelier spots are popular with youngsters fresh out of school or university, but there are some more discerning resorts. Playa del Carmen is a stunning spot for a beach holiday with a touch of class. You’re guaranteed great weather at almost any time of year and you can be as active as you want. Hit the beach to try out watersports and snorkelling. Sample the famous cuisine and head to a trendy waterfront bar for a sunset cocktail.
Ibiza is an island of stark contrasts. San Antonio is a constant hive of activity, where full-throttle partying takes place 24 hours a day. But head away from the clubbing mecca and you’ll encounter an entirely different story. Charter a boat for the day and sail around in the glistening azure waters, or wander around the winding bohemian streets of Ibiza town. Head to the east coast for tranquility and breathtaking scenery.
A bolthole for the rich and famous, Monaco is a short-haul alternative to Las Vegas. Gamble in the casinos, enjoy bottles of bubbly overlooking the harbour and shop until you drop at designer boutiques. If you’re after something similar without the premium price tag, head for Nice or Marbella.
An increasingly interesting prospect for tourists from all corners of the globe, Iceland has emerged as a must-see in the last few years. Reykjavik is famed for high prices and chic galleries and shops. Join the notorious weekend bar crawl and get out of town to take advantage of adventure activities. Walk on a glacier, drive a snowmobile or relax with a beer at the Blue Lagoon. Those looking for a cosmopolitan winter retreat may also wish to consider Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo. If you’re eager to hit the slopes, head for Verbier or Val d’Isere.
Oozing inimitable Italian style, Milan is a must for fashion lovers and super-car fans. Hire a Ferrari for the day and lap up the admiring glances. Shop up a storm and finish the day off with a sumptuous feast and a few bottles of red.
Boys holidays needn’t be tacky, brash and gaudy. A new breed of holiday is emerging, and there are plenty of stunning destinations for the more refined gent. Take these options into consideration and enjoy a stylish getaway.
