For a very long time, travel has been considered a social activity; from romantic getaways for couples, vacations in family escape with friends, and even business trips. Solo leisure was left to a certain stigma with waiters frowning at the words “table for one” or assigning corner sits in the cinema to not block the best seats for couples.
However, we are happy to announce that this travel trend has changed over the last two years and traveling alone is now hype. Recently, more people have embraced solo travel in order to satisfy their desire for alone time. The truth is, sometimes you just need to get away from it all.
It may sound like a cliché, but travel alone is a perfect occasion to enjoy being without distractions and to have some time just to yourself, it really can be a catalyst to a new and pure you.
After months and months of quarantines and restrictions, people are now more inspired to act on the impulse to take that bucket list seeking life-altering experiences. It’s not anymore just about backpackers’ trips but about travelers looking for valuable moments with plenty of comfort and self-care.
There is something remarkably relaxing about traveling alone, as it means removing all the obstacles between you and your dream destination and itinerary.
With over 300 days of sunshine, Marbella is one of the year-round go-to-getaway for travelers seeking much-needed alone time to decompress and pamper themselves while having a first-class experience.
Indulge yourself while enjoying a beautiful pink-orange sunset holding a Gin&Tonic, or discover the local neighbors by losing yourself between the narrow streets of the “Casco Antiguo”, the promenade at the “Paseo Marítimo”, visit the “Plaza de Los Naranjos” to create some beautiful memories that will last forever in your mind.
Enjoy its gastronomy from local specialties such as the “ajoblanco” or delight yourself in a Michelin starred restaurants such as Skina or El Lago for a heavenly taster menu.
