  • Beaches I have been to alone

1. Amsterdam

Architecture in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is the picturesque Capital City of the Netherlands with a network of over 160 canals and 1700 bridges.  Its name derived from being the dam of the River Amstell. First it was known as Amstellredamme and later, Amsterdam.  If you choose this destination, you will not be disappointed.  There is plenty to see and do in this City for a solo traveller.

2. Antigua

Turners Beach

This is one of those destinations to come to if you enjoy pure relaxation. It is a beautiful island nestled between the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean.  I have visited the island on many occasions and each time I leave, I can’t wait to return.  I can highly recommend visiting this island as a solo traveller.  The locals are warm, friendly and welcoming.  They are informative, proud of their Island and genuinely want you to enjoy your stay.

If you want to chill out by the beach or pool and do very little, there are plenty of high quality, all inclusive resorts where you can do just that!  Alternatively, stay in a room only resort where you can explore and see a little more of the real Antigua.

3. Australia

Australia holidays are superb for solo travellers.  I have visited here with friends, family and as a solo traveller and I can really recommend it.  I stayed in Sydney, a vibrant City with lots going on.  It is very easy to pack a lot into your stay here without having to travel too far at all…once you get here that is!!  Though the flight I took was extremely good and made my journey very comfortable with Malaysia Airlines.  

The beaches here are amazing, the food is outstanding and there are day trips and activities galore!  But if you fancy going somewhere with a ‘get away from it all’ feel then try Hunter Valley or the Blue Mountains.  Both are less than 2 hours drive from the city.  Sydney is a great destination to come to if you want a holiday full of variety.

4. Florence, Italy

Florence is a beautiful, compact city with stunning architecture, which is easy to explore on foot.  The piazzas are super places to sit and watch the world go by with a glass of Chianti, Tuscani’s signature wine.

5. London

London is a superb place to visit if you are coming to the UK for a solo holiday.  It is also well worth a day trip or weekend break.  This city is steeped in history and an ideal destination for those who enjoy culture, stunning architecture and iconic buildings.

6. Madrid

Madrid is a clean, safe city for solo travel. It has a relaxed ambience in spite of being the capital of Spain. It is a wonderful place to come to enjoy exquisite food, high end shopping, architecture, museums and flamenco.
