With its forest-covered volcanic mountains, rice paddies, coral reefs and beaches, Bali is a popular destination.

Famed on the Greek island of Zakynthos is Navagio Bay, known as Shipwreck beach, which can only be reached by boat.

When is the best time to go on holiday for singles?
If you're looking for a quiet break away from the crowds, spring, autumn or even winter could be the right time for you. If you like your sea warm and your sunshine constant, stick with the summer months. Although summer may see more special events and festivals taking place, travelling at other times is often more cost-effective. Take into account the weather in the area you're planning to visit. It may be shorts and tee-shirts for a trip to Lisbon in March; warmer clothing may be required for a break in Edinburgh at the same time of year.
Going on holidays for singles
Remember that adult-only resorts are not the only option. Voyage Privé offers an extensive range of deals in destinations around the world, which would be perfect for the single traveller. How to get there and how long it will take will naturally depend on which hotel you choose. Booking a deal with Voyage Privé means all the information you need will be easily available.
Enjoying your holiday as a single traveller
Make a list of the things you like to do, as there is a multitude of resorts across the world that cater to every taste. On arrival, visit the local tourist office for information on any upcoming events or sights of special interest. In historical areas, there are often excavations taking place, while annual festivals offer a great way to plug into a region's culture. The length of your stay is also important, and if you're relaxing in a Mediterranean paradise, even 2 weeks may not seem long enough. In a more urban setting, on the other hand, you may have seen all you want to see within 3 or 4 days. It's always advisable to plan your holiday according to your destination.
The Voyage Privé travel expert’s opinion on singles holidays
We recommend that you choose your destination based on the things you like to do and what you require from your accommodation. If you love ancient history, a destination such as Greece might be a good choice. While the past is much in evidence here, it is still very much a part of the 21st century, with all the amenities we would expect to find. If you have a taste for luxury a city break in Paris or London can offer accommodation in the grand style. On the other hand, for something a little less formal a trip to an exotic island hideaway may be more your style. Whatever your personal preferences, be assured that the perfect deal for you is just waiting to be found.
