Singles holidays in Spain

By Cathy Winston, Editor

Spain is one of the most popular countries for singles holidays. Hotels and specialist tour companies have a range of offers regardless of your age or interests, from Andalucia to Zaragoza.

Long-stay hotels

For solo travellers aged 50 or more, Saga Holidays has no single supplements at its long-stay hotels in Spain. Many of the resorts are all-inclusive and great for meeting new people. The Hotel Port Denia – a client favourite for many years – is just 50 yards from the beach on the Costa Blanca, while Huelva the Occidental Isla Cristina is a great choice for walkers, birdwatchers and photographers, thanks to its location near Marismas de Islas Cristina and Doñana National Park.

Wellness retreats

The Healthy Holiday Company has wellness trips throughout Spain, from weight loss to holistic living. Shanti Som in Andalucia runs intensive yoga retreats, and a multi-day weight loss programme combining diet, exercise and yoga. The Sha Wellness Clinic on the Costa Blanca has a detox retreat that focuses on macrobiotics and re-balancing your system. Retreats run by In:Spa incorporate a bit of everything, creating a more holistic experience. Here, nutritionists, chefs, trainers and instructors work together to provide a wide range of services, from massage to fitness training to weight loss. Singles can choose an In:Spa program in Ibiza, or at La Vella Farga, near Barcelona.


Cruises are a sociable way to see multiple locations throughout Spain. Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has a Canary Islands itinerary that, on select dates, has no single supplement. And while the trip is not solely for singles, you can elect to be seated with other solos at dinner and partake in any of the cruise’s activities. Fred. Olsen targets those 50 and older.

Active holidays

Solos Holidays offers a wide variety of holidays for single travellers looking to stay active while in Spain. For golf enthusiasts, they have trips to Mallorca and Lanzarote. The former is designed for those with a handicap and the latter for those without. The same operator runs various walking tours: you can explore the White Villages of Andalucia, the desert landscapes of Fuerteventura, or the cork forests and canyons of Cadiz and Cape Trafalgar. Each walking tour offers hikes at different levels of difficulty and are open to all ages.

Personal development

Cortijo Romero in Andalucia has put together a retreat that focuses on personal development and life transformation. Staying in a converted farmhouse in the mountains of Las Alpujarras, you’ll get a week’s holiday filled with courses that range from yoga to mindfulness to writing and professional development. The programme combines group activities, such as an excursion to nearby villages, with opportunities for solitude and reflection. While some couples attend, most participants arrive solo and range in age from early 20s to retired.
