iskmitev added Sofia - With less of a rep for big lad's holidays than its Mediterranean counterparts, you might think that Bulgaria's Sunny Beach had something to prove. Wrong. Sunny Beach is the hidden gem of the lad's holiday destinations. Groups of lads and ladies from all over Europe have had it right at the top of their list for the last few years and UK lads are just realising its massive potential. With clubs to rival Ibiza, hundreds of bars and the cheapness of a non Eurozone country, it really is a winner on all fronts... Sunny Beach has, you've guessed it, a decent sunny beach! Over 5 miles long in fact, so plenty of room for a game of footie. The resort also boasts a longer season than many other lad's holiday destinations, you can pretty much guarantee decent weather and a packed resort all the way from May through till September. So perfect if you're planning two big lad's holidays this year!
