Beacon is an APP build for people by people. It’s a social platform for solo travellers and backpackers that want to make meaningful connections around the world. We believe that your mindset, choices, and purchases can have a big impact on the places that you travel. We have a unique opportunity to break down barriers, foster cultural exchange, and create a positive impact. Beacon does this through a selection of features. In each feature, you have the chance to challenge yourself and connect with travellers with the same interests as you.






Share their unique identity,  with the world
around you.



















Beacon is a complete traveler community. Whether you are a solo traveler or traveling in a group, we help you expand your network of people in the world while traveling.



Throw our app we encourage you to go in with a positive attitude, and you might just make a genuine connection. It’s the perfect app to discover nearby backpacking places and travel buddies in real-time.















Beacon’s objective is to make the UX more simple and approachable to every solo traveler. This is achieved through the art direction that we choose, a real simple but functional design.













We understand that the features need to reflect our own point of view in the aspect of making meaningful connections. A concept we have expanded across our social platforms.






We believe that traveling lets you create lifetime memories.

On our website, you will find all the pieces featured in our app, and, as a result, the website, is our main platform for our editorial content, it contains articles, interviews, our manifesto, and some testimonies of our community. 







We created our own manifesto
and traveler community.
