So many holiday sites are dedicated to families, couples, backpackers and women, but what about the average bloke? He’s not what you’d call well represented in the travel market. However, there is a growing market for male-only holidays.
Man-friendly holiday destinations go beyond Las Vegas and Eastern Europe’s capitals. There are hundreds of locations across the globe that cater well to the average man’s needs. Here are our three top picks.
Egypt holidays cater to pretty much everyone, but more adventurous men will really enjoy this North African location. From sand boarding and 4-wheel driving across the desert to scuba diving shipwrecks and getting up close and personal with sharks there are dozens of adrenaline fuelling activities to try out in Egypt. The Red Sea is one of the best places in the world to scuba dive and all levels are catered to. Depending on the time of year you could swim with whale sharks or witness a dark sea come alive with coloured prosperous. On dry land you can bump and jump you wall over giant sand dunes or get to grips with sand boarding, which is just like snowboarding without bindings and on sand rather than snow of course.
On The Beach offers Egypt holidays throughout the year allowing you to find a cheap deal during low season and term time.
Whether you travel to Austria during the summer or winter there are so many things to do you’ll need a relaxing holiday afterwards to recover. Skiing and snowboarding conditions during the winter are among the best in Europe as Austria receives decent amounts of snow even when other areas are in dire need of the white stuff. Off piste skiing and snowboarding is at its best in the Arlberg region, whilst summer skiing and boarding is possible on the high glaciers at Hintertux and the Kitzsteinhorn. There is no shortage of things to do in the summer either. From mountain biking to windsurfing, paragliding to white-water rafting, sporty, action-loving men will find their own slice of paradise.

You wouldn’t normally associate Hawaii with a man’s holiday. However, when you think about it there are plenty of reasons men should visit this tropical paradise. Firstly, the surf is among the best in the world; if you want to give this uber cool sport a try, this is the place to do so. Secondly, life is lived in boardies and bikinis and the women are incredibly beautiful. Thirdly, if you don’t want to spend all day surfing you can jump from towering waterfalls, hike in tropical rainforests, check out lively volcanoes and drink beer in the beach bars until it’s party time.
