Spend Valentine’s Day in the Canary Islands, one of the most romantic spots in Europe

Spend the most romantic day of the year in the Canary Islands. Star gaze, take a long walk on the white sand beaches or visit some Michelin-starred restaurants with your special someone this Valentines Day.

Sunset from the top of Teide in Tenerife

Enjoying the sunrise or sunset from Teide mountain is one of the most incredible things a couple can do during a romantic trip on the Canary Islands. This volcano, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is Spain’s highest peak and the world’s third tallest volcano. Couples can share a sentimental moment by watching the sky glow shades of orange and pink as the day comes to an end.

Roque Nublo, the symbol of Gran Canaria

El Roque Nublo and El Roque Bentayga are two enormous stones in the volcanic crater of Tejeda, which is part of the Gran Canaria Biosphere Reserve. They are both located in the Nublo Rural Park. Scenic excursions to the monoliths’ base provide panoramic vistas of jagged rocks, magical caves, and a navy-blue ocean.

Jameos del Agua, the perfect setting for a romantic dinner in Lanzarote

Jameos del Agua is a difficult place to top for a romantic evening. This sequence of exposed lava tunnels is a joy to witness.

Cesar Manrique, a Lanzarote native, designed the complex in the 1960s. Manrique transformed an amazing geological phenomena into a sustainable tourism attraction that is designed to have as minimal impact on the environment as possible. Jameos del Agua now houses a restaurant, a theater, and a bar. A natural lagoon in the center of the site is tinted in colours of orange, green, and black thanks to mineral deposits on the exposed cave’s ceiling.

Corralejo Dunes in Fuerteventura

The Corralejo Natural Park is a great place to discover Fuerteventura’s natural beauty. This coastal area, located in the northeast of Fuerteventura, consists of two parts; a largest expanse of dunes and a rugged volcanic landscape. The contrast between the pristine sand and the rough volcanic texture makes the Corralejo Natural Park unique.

La Gomera and the Magic Fountain

The beauty of La Gomera emerges in valleys full of palm trees, deep ravines, black sandy beaches, crystal clear ocean water, and ancient forests. The island is a natural paradise which has been recognized as a Biosphere Reserve with plant species that have disappeared almost everywhere else on the planet. The Chorros de Epina fountain, located in the Garajonay National Park, has long been associated with romance. Couples make wishes and visit the water for good luck.

La Palma, the best spot for stargazing

Is there anything more romantic than stargazing with your special someone? The skies of La Palma are among the clearest in Europe thanks to the “Law of the Heavens” which restricts flight patterns, light air and radio wave pollution. The Roque de los Muchachos observatories provide the best views on the island.

Swim in the Charco Azul volcanic pool in El Hierro

Charco Azul, located in the northwest of El Hierro, is one of the most spectacular swimming spots in the Canary Islands. It is perfect for couples who seek a tranquil location to take a break from the hustle and bustle and enjoy views across the volcanic landscape. Charco Azul is crowned by a basalt arch and includes a series of wooden terraces and launch pads for divers.

Paradise in La Graciosa

If you dream of a wedding on an island by the sea, you will love La Graciosa. This remote destination is one of the most beautiful secrets of the Canarian archipelago. With less than 700 inhabitants and a land mass of just under 30 square kilometres, La Graciosa is a paradisiacal location with pristine beaches, incredible views of the Lanzarote coastline, and a warm and sunny climate all year long.
