Romantic Getaways: Retreat To Lanzarote This Valentine's Day

Posted on 17 January 2019


An island paradise like no other is always an alluring option for a romantic getaway - and Lanzarote fits the bill perfectly. From the volcanic landscape to the cloudless sunny days all year round, there are several reasons to make Lanzarote the destination for your Valentine’s weekend break. If you’re not quite sold yet, in this post, we’ll provide plenty of reasons why you should spend February 14th on the beach, sipping sangria with the one you love the most.

Activities to suit every type of couple

No matter what you’re both into, Lanzarote has plenty to keep you occupied. Extreme sports fans can go paragliding off the volcanic peaks in the centre of the island, or scuba diving amongst the submerged artistry at the Museo Atlantico just off the coast of Playa Blanca. If you’re after something a little more sedate, then a few cocktails at Playa Blanca’s array of beachside bars might be more up your street.
For culture vultures, Lanzarote can deliver on this front, too. Explore the legacy of Cesar Manrique by visiting his house and other iconic artwork across the island, or have a glimpse into the life of Nobel prize winning author Jose Saramago by visiting his home, which has been converted into a boutique museum.

Accomodation made for two

Our range of Lanzarote apartments are well worth a look if you’re seeking a private hideaway in the centre of the resort. We can’t think of many things more romantic than relaxing and taking in the panoramic view at Apartment Puerto Mar in the heart of Playa Blanca over a glass of local wine - but the similar view at Apartment Lolita down the road in Puerto Del Carmen certainly gives it a run for its money.

Both these one-bed apartments are great options for a Valentine’s getaway - and they’re both situated in vibrant resort towns where you can do as much or as little as you desire.

Unforgettable venues for a special meal

Lanzarote is blessed with several wonderful opportunities for an exciting date. From the Mirador Del Rio restaurant (pictured above) situated in a viewpoint that Cesar Manrique fashioned out of the volcanic rock to offer diners a view of the neighboring island of La Graciosa, to the eclectic and bizarre Jameos Del Agua events space, which combines volcanic fissures and blind crabs for a unique dining experience - there’s plenty to see.

If your tastes lean towards the carnivorous, you may want try the El Diablo restaurant in the Timanfaya National Park - where you can eat various meats that have been cooked via the super-hot volcanic vents that characterise this district of the island - definitely beating a forlorn 2 for 1 at Prezzo…

So, whatever your hobbies, whatever your preference for accommodation on Lanzarote, you’ll be sure to find your niche. Browse our range of apartments and private villas today and get ready for one of your most romantic weekends away yet.
