Singles holidays in June

By Cathy Winston, Editor

June is a fantastic month for a singles holiday. Summer temperatures mean you don’t need to travel far for guaranteed sun, but these last weeks before the start of the school holidays let you avoid peak season prices to snap up some great deals for solo travellers.

Beach holidays for solo travellers

If you want a classic summer beach holiday, the Greek Islands are idyllic and the trips from Solos Holidays guarantee the holiday will be singles only, with no extra charges for solo travellers. It runs its own ClubSolos hotels (small, friendly, modestly priced, lovely locations) in CorfuSantorini and Crete, (along with a new addition hotel in Antigua).

On the Greek island of Crete, the singles-only Mistral Hotel offers a house party atmosphere with no room supplements, two pools and a wellness centre. It’s a three-minute walk to the beach.

Friendship Travel has a gulet cruise in Turkey for solos where most guests are aged 35 to 65.

For over-50s there are some tempting solo deals in Spain, including the Hotel Port Denia hotel and Occidental Isla Cristina with Saga Holidays.

Looking further afield, June sees some of the best diving conditions on Koh Samui in Thailand. For a yoga-themed break, Absolute Sanctuary on Koh Samui has highly-rated spa and detox programmes.

In the Indian Ocean, the dry season has begun on Mauritius with temperatures still in the high 20s. Or head to the Maldives where between May and October the four-star Bandos Island Resort costs from just £1,495 for seven nights B&B with flights if you book with Barefoot Traveller.

And if you’d like Caribbean beaches without the high prices, this is a good month to try. Look to St Lucia, where BodyHoliday is popular with solo guests. It’s an all-inclusive getaway with spa treatments included in the price.

Cruise holidays for singles in June

A holiday on the water has to be one of the most relaxing ways to travel, watching your destination slip past and stopping to explore along the way.

For a floating house party, I suggest European Waterways, whose luxury barge holidays offer gourmet meals, an open bar and spa pool on deck, with itineraries throughout France, including the Canal du MidiBurgundy and Gascony. See the special offers for trips with no single supplements.

St Hilda Sea Adventures runs cruises around the Hebridean islands this month including stops at Mull and St Kilda. The small boats offer an informal atmosphere with a maximum of eight on board, including single cabins.

Fred. Olsen is known for its cruises to the Baltics and Scandinavia but you can soak up some sun this month with a sailing to the Balearics. There are special dining options for solo travellers and no single supplement on selected dates. See the latest deals.

For the over-50s, Saga Travel has its own cruise ships with a generous number of single cabins and no supplements. The Spirit of Discovery sails out of Dover to see Norway’s fjords and North Cape in the midnight sun, with all prices including transfers between your home and the port (up to 250 miles) or free car parking.

For a less formal approach to cruising, Norwegian Epic has its own single staterooms and lounge if you’re travelling solo, with sailings around the Mediterranean and a choice of dining options so you needn’t be tied to the same table every night.

Experience a close encounter with mountain gorillas in the wild on a trip to Uganda with Rainbow Tours, which guarantees your own room for a low supplement. The once-in-a-lifetime tours include chimp tracking in Chamburu Gorge, a chance to see tree-climbing lions in Ishasha and a boat trip on the Kazinga Channel. Find out more.

If you love horses, how about a ranch holiday in the USA or Canada. In the Tuscon Mountains, White Stallion Ranch is a luxury resort with tempting deals for solo travellers. For more serious riders, Silver Spur Ranch in Idaho is a small working ranch where you can take part in cattle drives, and sleep in a tent under the stars. There’s no single supplement.

Active breaks

At the company’s own Hassness Country House on the shores of Buttermere, the single supplement is just £5 per night.

For more predictable weather, head to Spain. In the converted farmhouse of Cortijo Romero in Andalucia, you can combine Pilates with yoga, tai chi and exploring mountain villages in Las Alpujarras as well as courses with an emphasis on wellness and creativity. Popular with solo travellers, there’s a room share option or small single supplements if you prefer your privacy.
