With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, you might be heading off to Tenerife with your beloved. If you’re looking for romantic things to do in Tenerife, you have certainly come to the right place. The island boasts many opportunities to celebrate romance, and here are just a few ideas to put you in the mood for love.
A walk in the park
The Parque Garcia Sanabria in Santa Cruz de Tenerife is arguably one of the most romantic parks on the island. Bursting with colourful flowers, striking sculptures and misty fountains, it’s a tranquil venue for rejoicing in romance with your partner this Valentine’s Day.
Table for two
One of the most romantic things to do in Tenerife this Valentine’s Day is to enjoy a candlelit meal for two in a stunning setting. The range of options is almost bewildering, but if you want to push the boat out, consider the three Michelin star restaurant at the Abama Golf and Spa Resort above Playa San Juan.
For those staying in the south of the island, the Molino Blanco (white windmill) restaurant is hard to beat for romantic ambience. The harbourside restaurant of Los Roques in Los Abrigos also boasts one of the most romantic settings on the island.
There is nothing more romantic than watching the sun go down, and there are plenty of perfect spots at which to do this on Tenerife. For a spectacular colourful display at sun down, head to the beaches of Socorro or Jardin in the north, or El Medano, Las Vistas, Fanabe, El Duque or La Caleta in the south. The Mirador Archipenque above Los Gigantes and the Watermelon at for those enjoying holidays in Los Cristianos are good venues at which to sit and watch the sun go down with a cocktail in your hand.
Once the sun has gone down, a moonlit stroll is a must for anyone seeking truly romantic things to do in Tenerife. A barefoot, night time meander along a beach is the perfect way to end a day filled with romance. Whilst busy by day, many beaches are tranquil by night, so you could have the shores all to yourself. Head to Las Vistas in Los Cristianos or El Camison in Playa de las Americas for a stroll.
Gaze at the stars
It’s hard for love not to blossom when you’re gazing up at a blanket of stars, so if you want to feel on top of the world this Valentine’s Day, consider taking a star gazing tour of Mount Teide. You’ll get the chance to discover the different names of the constellations mapped out above you from an expert astronomer, and with some tours even throwing in a glass of champagne, you really can’t ask for a more romantic evening than this!
