Romantic Tenerife

If you haven’t booked anything special for Valentine’s Day yet, now is the time to pick up a late deal and jet off for some romantic and cheap holidays in Tenerife. It may not have the romantic ring of Paris or Venice, but Tenerife has plenty to offer couples looking for a romantic getaway. Quiet beaches Believe it or not it is still possible to find quiet beaches that are a little on the wild side, where you won’t find rows of sun beds or lines of beachside bars and cafes. For one, there is the beach at La Tejita, close to the village of El Medano in southern Tenerife. The beach of El Medano itself is popular with families thanks to soft sands and shallow waters, and the close by is Playa de la Tejita. Part of this beach is a nudist beach which is reached via a small path, but otherwise it’s a normal beach popular with tourists and locals alike. The sunrises are spectacular if you’re able to get there early enough, but at any time of the day it’s perfect for a romantic stroll along the shoreline away from the hubbub of more lively tourist beaches in the larger resorts. Spa treatments Everyone loves being pampered, and on cheap holidays in Tenerife a surefire way of creating a relaxed and romantic mood is to take a his and her spa session. If this is part of your plan for a loving Valentine’s, the easiest way is to stay a hotel that offers spa treatments, and there are plenty of them dotted around the island. Afterwards, take advantage of the relaxed mood and have a romantic candlelit meal together before retiring for a night cap on your own terrace under the stars. Cultural evenings out Of course you don’t have to restrict a romantic holiday to include Valentine’s Day. You can book a time for just the two of you at any time of year. One way to enjoy a special evening is to visit The Auditoria de Tenerife, up in the northern part of the island in Santa Cruz. This futuristic building, that has been likened to the Sydney Opera house, is home to the Tenerife Symphony orchestra and also plays host to a number of musical events throughout the year. If you look up the programme for the time you’re thinking of visiting, you can arrange your own private Valentine to take in a visit to this special venue.
