You don’t have to choose between catching flights and feelings when you’re on holiday with that special someone. Going away is the perfect chance to get to know each other better, ramp up the flirting or bring back the spark. You don’t need to visit stereotypical destinations like Paris or Venice to find love in the air. You can inject passion into holiday favourites like Majorca, Cuba or Egypt. If you’re looking for something extraordinary year-round, here are 7 romantic things you can do with your partner in the Canaries.
1) Love at first bite
There’s nothing more sensual then having dinner with someone you love and cosying up with a glass of wine. At the SENTIDO Aequora Lanzarote, get to grips with the Spanish cuisine at Los Pocillos. Make sure you dress to impress at for this romantic dinner.
2) Stargaze on the beach
Bring a blanket and spend the evening stargazing on the beach. Head to Maspalomas the part desert, part dune nature reserve, which is guaranteed to be like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Plus, the mystical moonlight and sounds of the lapping waves will get you in the mood for love.
3) Turn up the heat on a volcano tour
Timanfaya National Park is perfect for getting those sparks flying between you and your significant other. A visit here is like travelling to another world with sand-like lava rocks and big boulders. This volcanic landscape is bursting with colours from black to orange and red.
4) Get hands-on with a surf lesson
Reconnect or get to know each other better by trying out a local water sport. The Canary Islands are famous for surfing, so grab a board and get a bit flirty in the sea. It doesn’t matter if you can’t ride the waves, you’ll have lots of fun putting the moves to the test.
5) Have a picnic in Garajonay National Park
Head to a local supermarket and pick up some goodies to take with you to Garajonay National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage site is littered with streams, springs and beautiful vegetation. If you’re a bird lover, it’s an excellent spot for watching wildlife while you tuck into your picnic.
6) Go on a wine tasting trip
Toast to your future together in a beautiful vineyard in Tenerife. Learn about the history of winemaking and sample a glass or two. Whether you prefer sweet or dry, get advice on what wine you should accompany your meals with back at home.
7) Pamper yourselves at a spa
Make sure to combine all the fun activities with some downtime. It’s great to have a day out to relax around the pool together. Take that one step further and get a spa treatment at the beautiful Sunprime Atlantic View in Gran Canaria.
