Are you looking for a destination where you can mix adventure with other Black like-minded singles?

Here are some of the best destinations worldwide for single Black travelers in 2021. You never know, you may find your forever travel partner when you arrive.

1. Ghana

Ghana is always a vibe and the perfect destination to celebrate Black people, culture, and history.

Over the last few years, Ghana has really set the tone for inviting the diaspora home, which is why you meet so many people from all walks of life visiting the “Gateway to Africa.”

Ghana is a great starting place for single Black travelers because there’s just so much to do and the nightlife is one of the best in the world.

 

2. Portugal

Portugal has established itself as a vibrant and hip country for single travelers.

If you want to escape the nightlife and entertainment in Lisbon, then head up north to Porto where you can find popular cruises on the Douro River. One of the best things to do is explore the famous port wine cellars which could create the perfect spark of a romantic flame with someone.

3. Mexico

Tripadvisor released a report earlier this year naming the 10 fastest-growing destinations for Americans and a few cities in Mexico made the list. When you mix Mexico’s popularity with its growing Black expat community, it’s a great place for Black singles.

4. Indonesia

It’s easy to be swept away by Indonesia’s beauty.  As the adult gap year grows, Bali is where many Black travelers are heading to detach and reset.

Dubai and Abu Dhabi are popular cities among Black travelers seeking luxury vacations in the United Arab Emirates.

Not only is Abu Dhabi – the capital of the United Arab Emirates – a hot spot, it’s also a place where Black expats go to upgrade their lifestyle and improve financial security.

6. Panama

Landlocked between Colombia and Costa Rica, Panama is a fun and safe destination in Central America for single Black travelers.

During your visit, you will immediately notice that the culture is deeply rooted in African traditions. It’s a destination where you will feel safe and most importantly, you will feel at home.

Another pro of visiting Panama? If you’re traveling from the United States or the United Kingdom, you will be eligible for a 180-day visa.

Brazil is known for having one of the highest populations of African people outside the continent of Africa, with more than 55 million people identifying as Black or of mixed race. So, it should come as no surprise that it’s a popular destination for Black travelers.

Rio is a beautiful city with amazing people and a vibrant culture.

8. U.S. Virgin Islands

The Virgin Islands is a great destination because you don’t need your passport and the weather is beautiful year-round.

St. Croix, also known as the “Big Island” is the largest of the four U. S. Virgin Islands. The 84 square mile island is home to more than 53,000 residents, where more than 75 percent of the population identifies as Black.

No matter how many times you visit The UK, it’s a place where you can find discoveries and meet new people every time you visit.

As a Black traveler, you will feel right at home in London. It’s easy to make connections at a café, museum, or happy hour.
