I’ve always been a fan of solo travel and it is fast gaining popularity in the travel industry.

Once you get over the initial leap and fear, there are many benefits to solo travel.

Why Travel Solo?

  • It’s one of the best ways to meet new people!
  • You can experience dive and travel highlights from other people’s perspectives
  • Pushing outside your comfort zone will literally change your life!

It can be challenging to find facilities tailored for solo travelers but thankfully more and more liveaboards are providing single cabins. YES!
