  • Top 5 Romantic Things to Do in the Canaries

    The Canary Islands are popular holiday destinations for people across Europe. They’re not too far away so the flight isn’t too long, they boast great year-round weather and there’s lots of things to see and do. While they’re often most popular with families, did you know there’s a lot of opportunity for romance too?

    If you and your partner are looking to get away from it all, here you’ll discover some of the top romantic things to do in the Canaries. 

    1. Explore the Maspalomas Dunes

    If you’re heading to Gran Canaria, the Maspalomas Dunes are a great romantic destination. Known to be a special nature reserve, the dunes cover a staggering 400 hectares. As well as the golden sand dunes, the reserve also features stretches of palm trees, a great beach and a lagoon. 

    You and your partner can stroll hand in hand across the sand, ending with a picnic on the beach. 

    2. Enjoy a spa experience for two

    No matter which part of the Canaries you head to, you’ll never be far away from a luxury spa. Couples spa days are a great way not only to bond together, but to ensure all of your worries drift away. 

    If it’s a relaxing spa break you’re looking for, we highly recommend a stay at our Tenerife TUI Sensimar Los Gigantes. This striking resort features a luxurious spa which provides a number of relaxing treatments, including couples’ massages. It’s an adults-only resort too, guaranteeing a peaceful and romantic stay. 

    3. Go whale and dolphin watching together

    Due to the warm tropical waters of the Canaries, it’s not unusual to spot dolphins and whales. No matter where you go, you’ll be able to take a whale and dolphin watching tour. Witnessing these majestic creatures in their natural habitat is a memorable experience. 

    You and your partner will create lasting memories together as you watch bottlenose dolphins elegantly drift through the water.

    4. Take a sunset cruise

    Few activities are as romantic as taking a sunset cruise together. The sunsets in the Canaries are truly spectacular. Most cruises will have other couples there too. However, as you gaze out into the sunset together it will feel like it’s just you and your partner. This is the ideal activity for couples looking to reconnect.

    5. Catch an open-air movie together

    With the beautiful tropical weather, what better way to spend an evening in the Canaries than by catching an open-air movie together? Snuggle up under the night stars as you watch a popular film. These open-air cinemas typically serve up a range of delicious food too. It’s an ideal way to enjoy the cooler evenings and connect with the one you love.

    As you can see, there are lots of different romantic things to do in the Canaries. If you fancy something a little different to just hitting the beach, there’ll be something here you and your partner are sure to enjoy.
