1. Spring Fling Singles Cruise, Caribbean
We reckon single girls and guys deserve options, which is why our number-one choice for a hook-up holiday involves hundreds of eligible bachelors and bachelorettes aboard a city-sized ship cruising around the Caribbean.
Leaving from the US’s party capital of Miami, Best Single Travel’s Eastern Caribbean Cruise cuts through the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea to drop anchor at fantasy islands St Thomas, Antigua, Tortola and the Bahamas.
Basically, it’s eight nights of pure holiday heaven – with heaps of available hotties included to ensure temperatures are soaring all day and all night.
Keeping the party pumping on the Carnival Breeze are regular singles cocktail parties (the cocktails are free, bonus) and single-mingle dining.
There are onboard clubs, too, spinning tunes late into the night, every night, so you can bump‘n’grind to your heart’s (or other body parts’) content.
Guests will also get wet and wild on swimming and snorkeling trips, and hit the Caribbean’s hottest clubs while on dry land.
Best Single Travel also offers a roommate matching service so you have a friend ready and waiting in your cabin – though we assume your roomie is intended as a wingman/ woman and not a love interest (just imagine if you didn’t fancy them, that would be dire).
There are also nightly Las Vegas-style shows, stand-up gigs and lavish buffets to keep you in the holiday mood.
These might also come in handy if you need cheering up or feel compelled to comfort eat when you see last night’s hook-up hitting on some fresh meat over breakfast the next morning. Just saying.
One word of warning – all ages are welcome on this sexy spring fling voyage. While we hope this doesn’t mean you’ll have to bat away the advances of a dirty old man/ woman while at sea and, therefore, unable to escape, we cannot guarantee it.
All-inclusive rooms for this eight-day trip start at £637pp.
At what price love, eh?
2. Copacabana, Costa Rica
If you like swinging and surfing, this adult-only resort on Jaco Beach in Costa Rica is for you. It might be for couples, but these are couples of an open-minded calibre – which means hook-ups are firmly on the agenda.
You can view the merchandise in the resort’s ‘clothing optional’ areas and, if you like what you see, take it to the adult Play Room (hint: jungle gym not a feature). Add in nude watersports and you’re in for one hell of a holiday.

3. Sex Vacation, Dominican Republic
Here’s one way to ensure you hook up: take an ‘erotic sex vacation with the company of stunning ladies’. This package includes a private hotel stay and a ‘sexy escort’ 24 hours a day, though the resort is at pains to insist it is not a brothel.
So what can you expect at this not-a-brothel? Well, it’s recommended that you bring double the amount of condoms you think you’ll need, and you can choose a different escort each day of your stay. It’s not a brothel though, OK?

4. Friends on Board, Aegean Sea
If you don’t fancy trying to pick a mate from the masses on a city-sized cruise liner, try a seven-night sailing trip around the Aegean Islands on a smaller, more intimate boat for adults only.
While not specifically designed for singles, Friends on Board bills itself as a “young, dynamic company” and runs a roommate programme allowing travellers to meet online and select a cabin mate ahead of the trip.
Stopping off at the likes of Mykonos and Santorini, it’ll be a party.
aegeanfobcruises.gr; seven nights £230pp
An instrument of the hook-up as opposed to a saucy break in itself, hangoutonholiday.com facilitates successful hook-up holidays by putting you in touch with people who are travelling to the same place as you at the same time.
“Ever met someone you really liked on the last day of your holiday?” the website asks.
“How about finding them before you go?” And therein lies the genius. Vet the likely hook-ups before you book your ticket, thereby as good as guaranteeing your holiday romance.
