Activity Holidays to Consider for Singles

Fed up with the same old beach holiday spent sun worshipping with a book? After a bit more adventure? It could be time to consider an active holiday, allowing you to try your hand at a new hobby or skill, all whilst enjoying the same freedoms you had with your previous vacations.

A solo break is often the best way to meet new people and to live to your own time schedule, doing what you want to do instead of compromising for others. It might be exactly what you need!

Here are four activity holidays perfectly suited for singles seeking unforgettable experiences and meaningful connections.

Tennis holidays


If you’ve never picked up a racket in your life, or you’re a dab hand on the courts, tennis holidays allow you to enjoy the sunshine all whilst improving at the sport. Immerse yourself in the game by playing different opponents each day and spending time with a coach.

Tennis is the perfect sport for meeting new people, as you will play with different teammates, and can spend post-match hours getting to know your courtside companions.

Spend your free time relaxing by the pool to help you unwind or book in for a massage.

Yoga Retreats

Whether you’re a yoga novice or a certified Yogi, joining a yoga retreat allows you to take a break from the busyness of your daily life whilst rejuvenating your mind and body.

Make your time focused on fitness and health, promoting flexibility and core strength or choose a slower-paced class to fully unwind and relax. Whatever works best for you!

Picture a beach yoga class with the waves crashing on the shore providing the most peaceful backing track. If a serene and calming escape is what you’re after, consider choosing a yoga retreat.

Sailing Experiences


Sailing holidays are a brilliant way to meet other like-minded thrill seekers. Joining a flotilla (a small fleet of boats) is the perfect opportunity to socialise as you set sail on the open water.

You don’t need any sailing experience, as most boats offer skippered experiences. If a full week spent on water isn’t your idea of fun, but you still want the thrill of sailing the seas, opt for a boat that sails closer to shores. This way, you can get your land legs back on an evening.

Artistic Escapes

If you’re more artistic, a painting and drawing holiday is certainly one to consider. Not only do you get to capture the most beautiful settings, but you can work on a skill you might not get the chance to dedicate time to at home.

Connect with nature and improve on your techniques as you spend time doing what you love.

It can be daunting thinking about going away on your own, but treat this experience as an opportunity to step outside of your comfort zone, all whilst embarking on new adventures with new people.
