5 of the Best Wellness Vacations to Take When You’re Single

We get it: sometimes you just don’t feel like travelling solo. Maybe it’s because you’re newly single and heartbroken, or you’re happily unattached but nervous to go it alone.

Whatever the reason, if you’re craving a big adventure but you’re not ready to hit the road on your own, we’ve got the perfect happy medium: a wellness vacation.

Imagine a trip that includes healthy eats and feel-good exercise; a trip that offers a structured itinerary along with plenty of me-time; a trip where you’ll meet like-minded people and ultimately reconnect with yourself. This is what you can expect on a health-centric holiday — and you don’t need a partner or your best pals to enjoy it.

If you’re looking for a change of scenery to mend a broken heart or benefit your mind, body, and soul, here are five of the best wellness vacations for singles.

1. Surf & Yoga Holiday – Morocco

If you’re worried about travelling alone and you’re keen to make fast friends on holiday, a surf and yoga trip should be at the top of your list.

Both laid-back and action-packed, this type of vacation has a way of bringing people together — whether it’s out in the lineup waiting for waves to break, stretching in sync in a yoga class, or sharing a communal meal around the dinner table.

You can expect your days in Morocco to be filled with invigorating surf lessons, restorative yoga classes, and hearty, nourishing meals made with local ingredients. When it comes to accommodation, shared rooms are available for solo travellers looking to bunk with like-minded guests.
