Traveling as a single to Spain can be done in a package deal to one of the big resorts such as Murcia, Torrevieja or Benidorm, however the contents of such a package will typically be plenty of booze in tacky bars and a vacation spent with fellow drunken countrymen. If thats what you fancy, go for it. But singles are not limited to such options. The ideal in fact is to create your own perfect holiday package and suddenly you can achieve a much more interesting, meaningful and diverse experience whilst still meeting plenty of new – even sober – people during your stay.
Here´s a few ideas for the fundamental elements for a singles holiday in Javea:
- Book a flight to Alicante Airport
- Use Beniconnect for airport transfer to Javea
- Take advantage of facebook groups like “Javea Connect” & “Javeamigos”
- Book an apartment on the Arenal beach privately using adverts on social media
- Use the facebook groups to find out about local activities
First and foremost it is worth pointing out that choosing an area like Javea for a single holiday in Spain isnt an entirely random choice. Unlike some of the package deal destinations like Benidorm and Torrevieja the crime rate in Javea is extremely low and its safe to walk the streets alone at night – even as a single woman.
Further, there are plenty of activities that single people can join throughout the year, and the smaller volume of tourists means that the atmosphere for singles is very inclusive and welcoming. Thus making it very easy to blend in, make new friends and have pleasant new experiences during your stay.
Finding specific things to do that will easily open the doors to meeting new friends isn’t at all hard to do, but requires a bit of knowledge of your personal preferences. In general though, there are plenty of groups meeting around topics of their interest every day, activities on the beaches, groups exploring the nature round Javea by diving, surfing or walking and of course traditional Spanish fiestas in old town. All of these you can not only attend, you will generally be met with open arms, kisses on your cheek and a keen interest to get to know you. The Spanish and local expats have created a very nice and welcoming atmosphere like that. If you meet the area and its people in a positive spirit, you are guaranteed to get it back threefold.
Heres a few suggestions for activities and events in Javea:
- Attend The Spanish Fiestas in Javea Old Town
- Go to local bars away from the beach, for instance An Shebeen or Bar Jose
- Attend a Scuba diving beginners class
- Join salsa or zumba classes on the beach
- Go to live music events at La Hacienda or Penelope
- Join one of the mountain walking groups for a day out
- Attend one of the Montgo Vegetarians social meals
Of course, apart from all these events, fiestas and activities theres also plenty of regular parties in bars, themed fiestas in night clubs and chilled nights at the beach bars for those wishing to spice up the stay with nights out and the potential for meeting someone under such circumstances.
Dont be afraid to plan a singles holiday to Jávea. You wont find a safer and friendlier place to try it out – and with a positive attitude you are guaranteed to go home with a fresh batch of new friends and lovely experiences.
