Single Parent Holiday Destinations
Overlooking the stunning Mediterranean Sea, a holiday to Costa Blanca has days out written all over it. From theme parks, to zoos and marine parks, there’s something to interest every parent and child. Savour the delicious food by sampling the range of local restaurants serving traditional tapas, as well as firm British favourites. Others may want to dive into nature during their single parent holidays, exploring the volcanic landscapes and beaches of Tenerife, and discover the unique marine life in rock pools; while a trip further east will allow you to absorb the scenic beauty by the coast and inland, across the wonderful island nation of Cyprus.
Nothing beats the fun and thrills of a good water park, and Spain is home to some of Europe’s best. Head to Costa Brava and make sure you pack your swimsuits, as the water parks around the region make for great days out for the whole family during holidays for single parents, as you get active and make a splash. Diving into the attractions will help you all cool off from the heat, so enjoy the water slides, rides and child friendly pools on offer.
If you’re still concerned about making the plunge, don’t threat, travelling as the only adult can be daunting, especially if you’ve never been on an independent break before.

Heading out on single parent holidays having booked a board basis will alleviate numerous concerns that come with taking the kids away solo. If you’re looking for a relaxing break without any cooking, all inclusive is the best option. It’s also great for sticking to a budget, as all the important things are included in the cost before you go. Just imagine lazing on the beach with a good book and no worries in the world! You’ll also enjoy a strong sense of community across our top selection of single parent friendly hotels, offering a variety of kids clubs, children’s entertainment and swimming pools, as well as extensive menus, so everyone is happy with the food, while you can mingle with fellow guests by the pool as the kids exert some energy.
While our great range of hotels are ideal for catering to both yours and yours kids’ needs, there’s nothing like forming lasting holiday memories together when jetting off to an idyllic destination. Spending time with the kids is one of the joys of a trip away, so choose destinations that let you have it all, like Cyprus or the Canary Islands. If you or your child is a budding sportsperson, try a water sports lesson together, or if you want to explore the culture, spend the afternoon in a museum or art gallery – even if the kids do drag their heels at first!
