Solo beach holiday September 2014


I'm looking to go somewhere hot and beachy this September, but have no one to go with, so am just going to go on my own!

I went to oludeniz in May and would like to go back but I'd like to see new places too!

If anyone has any suggestions or previous experiences it would be much appreciated.

I'm only capped by budget, i can't spend more than £800 really. I want to go for a week, and it needs to be hot!

I don't want a walking or adventure holiday really, just somewhere with nice people, female friendly and somewhere where I won't have to be 'streetwise'! I would like the option to do things like kayaking or boat trips though

My understanding is you look for a package holiday.???

You may want to check what is on offer from Manchester to Kos or Rhodes in Greece, both are very tourism friendly islands with tons of beach options, plenty of watersports and boat trips.September is hot and lively on both islands.

You do not have to be specificaly hazard-aware but this of course doesn't mean you should leave your brains at home, as it applies anywhere really...

I would suggest Panglao in Bohol, Philippines. September might be wet season but it doesn't guarantee rain for the entire day. Bohol, by the way, is in the central Philippines and is usually not in the pathway of storms or typhoons.

You can go dolphin-watching which requires that you hop on an outrigger canoe. Kayaking is also possible.

Rhodes Town is lovely, reasonable town beach, vibrant old town, still very hot in Sept, and busy enough that you don't feel exposed as a solo traveller. Hotels around the casino area give proximity to beach and walking distance old and new town.

Crete is also still hot, my choice would be Rethmynon, miles of sandy beach and again a lively old town to wander around. Careful with hotel locations though, some state Rethmynon when they're actually more than 7km out of town.

Of the 2 Rhodes Town is probably a little more expensive than Crete, hope this helps

If you liked Olu I think you will like these - I personally didn't like Olu much, beach too noisy and very much a resort town.

Have you considered the Algarve? Something like www.rochabrava.com may be just the ticket - not to expensive (well within your budget) and close to the beach. You'll get some lovely weather in September too!

Hi Hannah.

Have a look at Paphos in Cyprus, some great hotels for crashing out on, and, very safe.

Weather will also be great.
