The perfect singles holidays in your 30s


You might want to go on a singles holiday because you’re looking to meet other like-minded single people or because you want to get away from it all, have some me time and make friends.[The benefits of living alone]

You may feel you’ve outgrown dreaming of the Magaluf experience, with teens and twenty somethings crowding into sweaty clubs, being sprayed with beer and foam and subjected to the lurid advances of drunken young men. However, you still enjoy a good time and want to meet people during a fun break in the sun. What are your options?

As a single traveller, you have the benefit of being able to go on holiday when and where you want, without relying on a companion to secure time off from work or disagreeing about the choice of destination. When you’re there, you can join in with groups or do things your own way. [A checklist for chilling out and enjoying life]

There are lots of different options for a good singles holiday all over the world, ranging from cruises to city breaks. There are some top singles tour operators who specialise in singles holidays, specifically catering for those without a partner, those who are divorced or widowed and those whose other half doesn’t wish to, or is unable to, accompany them on a break.

Everyone has a different idea of the perfect holiday for them but here are some suggestions to inspire you about venturing off on a singles holiday:

Culture vulture

Soak up the sights and admire the heritage in beautiful historical destinations. You might want to visit somewhere for impressive architecture, delicious local food or famous artists. On the go Tours offer more exotic destinations for singles such as a trip to visit the Taj Mahal or a tour through Mexico and Guatemala to see ancient Mayan temples.

Lap of Luxury

Cruises offer the chance to travel and stay in style with on-board entertainment, fine dining and onshore trips for passengers. They also have numerous bars in which to socialise with fellow passengers. Not so many cruise companies cater for singles, however Cunard ‘welcomes single travellers on every voyage’ and their Queen Mary 2 offers the height of luxury and is deemed the ‘most magnificent ocean liner ever built’. Try their iconic Transatlantic Crossing to New York.

Action Hero

You might want to get active and go on a cycling or hiking break and if you’re travelling with a singles group, you’ll have no shortage of people to accompany you or be your opponent. Solo, the UK’s number one singles holiday company and the first of its kind when it was formed in 1982, offers many sporty outdoor holidays such as tennis, skiing and trekking.

Beach Babe

You may prefer a relaxing holiday with sun, sand and sangria or lazy by the pool on a sunny afternoon. The Canary Islands offer a great winter sun destination if you’re looking to catch some rays in the colder months. There are some fabulous offers on all-inclusive singles resort holidays to be snapped up from Thompson.

Singles holidays can be very versatile and you can get what you want from them, whether it’s a solo retreat if you’d like to seek peaceful solitude, a way to find company if you’re lonely or a way to find romance.
