Jetting overseas with your best friends after splitting up with your partner is the perfect way to cure your breakup blues.

Being around people you trust and can count on for support is key post-breakup, so why not make a holiday out of it?

Distracting yourself, whether that means lazing along some of Miami’s most infamous beaches or exploring the unforgettable nightlife in Ibiza, a trip overseas is guaranteed to give you the space and time you need to kickstart the healing process.

Here are your top 3 post-breakup destinations. 

Santorini, Greece

Santorini is known for its breath-taking coastline and gorgeous architecture.

This picturesque holiday hotspot is the ultimate location for a post-breakup getaway. 

After dealing with heartbreak it is important to talk out your feelings in order to come to terms with the reality of being newly single.

However, if you aren’t quite ready to unload all of your emotions and instead are in dire need of some sort of distraction, there are several thrill-seeking adventures Santorini has to offer.

For lovers of the ocean, you can spend the whole day kayaking, snorkelling or lounging aboard a rented yacht with your best friends by your side.  

Alternatively, for lovers of land, you can rent a few quad bikes and explore the incredible Fira hiking trail, stopping every so often to take in the unfathomable scenery of Santorini.

True friends will support you through your hardest times, so whilst distraction can sometimes be beneficial, don’t be afraid to open up about your situation once you are ready.

New Orleans, Louisiana

Visiting New Orleans is guaranteed to be a crazy cultural experience – the perfect way to realise how much the world has to offer outside of what your relationship used to be.

Throwing yourself into a completely different environment is exactly what you need to start moving forward with your life.

With live jazz music at your disposal, delicious food around every corner and an endless supply of bars sprinkled throughout the French Quarter, your holiday itinerary will be packed to the brim.

Not to mention, if you are really feeling extra adventurous you could grab your bestie and book a New Orleans swamp tour just to say you did.

This beautiful city is full of brilliant opportunities to take your mind off the emotional toll any breakup is bound to carry.

You will also give yourself the chance to learn about the differences between who you are in a couple versus who you are as an individual.

If you truly take the time to not only understand but embrace those differences, you will be one step closer to becoming the best version of yourself post breakup.

Bali, Indonesia

Bali is the perfect post-breakup vacation option if you are looking for something slightly cheaper that doesn’t skimp out on luxury. 

With hundreds upon hundreds of villas to choose from, the Balinese community is known to consistently provide customer service that will exceed your expectations.

You may not consider this to be important, but after a tough breakup, the friendly face of a stranger could be the difference between a good or bad day.

Imagine this, you’re lounging by a private pool, sipping a cocktail whilst basking in the hot Balinese sun.

The only people around you are the people you trust most in the world.

Putting yourself up in a gorgeous villa in Seminyak, surrounded by your closest mates might just be the comforting setting you need in order to talk about your emotions, especially if you are not one to open up normally.

Take the chance to be vulnerable about your situation, you may end up finding the closure you needed all along.
