The Best Destinations For Solo Women Travelers

Prev 20 of 28 Next
Like most Western European countries, Spain is a safe country. Although Barcelona was hit by a terrorist attack just a couple years ago, that's the world we live in now and has no bearing on whether or not it's a safe city for solo female travelers — because it is. Far more of a party city than Madrid and right on the sea, Barcelona is very safe and vibrant city for any woman who prefers partying to hiking. The only drawback, and this can be said about any city that has a lot of tourists, is that pickpockets are an issue. But other than that, having walked those streets hundreds of times at night, it's extremely safe and the Catalan people are very welcoming.
