Singles holidays in March

By Cathy Winston, Editor

In March, the weather in the Mediterranean is starting to get warm and sunny, and it’s one of the best months to ski in the Alps. It’s also high season in the Caribbean, but peak prices won’t be kicking in until the Easter Holidays in early April.

Beach breaks for singles

However early spring arrives in the UK, it’s still not sunbathing weather in March. But for a blissed-out beach break, a luxurious all-inclusive Caribbean resort is unbeatable. BodyHoliday in sunny St Lucia includes a daily spa treatment, along with activities and water sports.

Another option for solo beach bunnies is the Maldives where you can get exclusive deals at the four-star Bandos Island Resort.

If you want to join a (small) group of singles, head to the five-star all-inclusive Ocean Eden Bay, an adults-only resort in Jamaica, with Friendship Travel. The same company has holidays in Paphos, Cyprus with stays of 7, 10 or 14 nights.

Mercury Holidays has a collection of hotels in beachfront destinations such as the Algarve and Madeira, with no single supplements and the option to go all-inclusive.

If you’re searching for beach breaks with more than sunbathing, Sri Lanka has ancient culture along with glorious coast. Discover the island’s first Muslim settlement at Beruwala, dating back to the 11th century. Or how about the world’s only hollow Buddha shrine at Kalutara?

In Thailand, Absolute Sanctuary combines yoga and detox programmes with lashings of sunshine on the beaches of Koh Samui.

Short-haul escapes for singles

Saga Holidays has great prices on long stay holidays for the over-50s with no single supplement at hotels including the five-star Enotel Lido in Madeira.

The temples and tombs of Egypt are another unmissable destination, and a Nile cruise is still the best way to see the ruins of Karnak and Luxor before temperatures rise. There’s no single supplement on this 10-day King Tutankhamun adventure in March from On The Go Tours.

Perhaps some pampering is in order – why not treat yourself with a spa retreat from The Healthy Holiday Company, designed for single travellers. For a short-haul escape, the sun should be gorgeous in Spain, Cyprus and Morocco.

Learning holidays

If you’ve been missing live music during the pandemic, you could enjoy world-class musicians up close at the Kirker Music Festival at Olga Polizzi’s Hotel Tresanton in St Mawes, Cornwall. The company has a fabulous selection of small-group trips to music festivals and events which are popular with solo travellers, with no single supplement on selected dates.

If it’s art, literature and architecture that you love, the themed cultural tours from Martin Randall Travel include a wide range covering the UK and Europe, all accompanied by an expert guide so you’ll return home enlightened.

Or mix culture and food on one of the cookery courses in Italy from Flavours Holidays. You could join a four-night break in Tuscany with no single supplement in March.

There are life and creative skills to be learned too. Skyros runs personal development holidays with a friendly house-party atmosphere. Or head to the hills of Andalucia for a range of life-changing courses at Cortijo Romero, a charming converted farmhouse.

Singles-friendly guided tours

March is a perfect time to visit Southeast Asia. It is one of the few months in Vietnam when all the country enjoys good weather so you can travel from Hanoi to Saigon via Halong Bay and Hoi An. Many of those booking with InsideAsia Tours are solo travellers, with local guides to provide added expertise.

Other options in the region include this  Angkor to the Bay: itinerary from Wendy Wu Tours which combines Cambodia and Vietnam, one of several tempting South East Asia trips, with some solos-only departures.

In Costa Rica, the dry season isn’t yet over, and beaches are quieter than January and February – ideal for spying its famous wildlife in the cloud forest and rainforest, before exploring volcanoes and coffee plantations. This tour is for solo travellers only.

Saga Holidays has a great selection of  escorted tours for the over 50s including Jewels of Spain visiting Valencia, Cartagena, the Alhambra Palace and Murcia.

Active singles holidays in March

If you’re longing to get outside after the winter, you could wander through some of the world’s most wonderful scenery on a walking holiday with no single supplement from Ramblers Walking Holidays, from the little-known Canary Island of La Palma to the dramatic landscapes of Jordan.

Solos Holidays also has walking breaks, exclusively for single travellers, including North Cyprus.

Keen horse riders can brush up their skills on a ranch holiday, with a wide range across the USA and in Canada, whether you prefer the amenities of a more luxurious resort ranch or to get your hands dirty at a small working ranch.

Feeling adventurous? How about joining a Husky Adventure in the spectacular Finnish wilderness or dog sledding through Norway’s Arctic Circle, spotting the Northern Lights along the way on a singles-only tour.

Singles ski holidays in March

Friendship Travel runs its own ski chalet holidays exclusively for solo travellers in the French resort of Alpe D’Huez and solo group trips in Les Deux Alpes.
