A must see!

5. A night sailing and dining in the Mediterranean
With the luxury of the Mediterranean, it’s no wonder that ports like Málaga, Marbella, Estepona and Benalmádena are great places to set sail from. Surprise your partner as you lead them aboard a beautiful boat, set out into the dusk, listen to the waves lap, feel the ocean breeze in your hair and watch the sunset over a bottle of wine and a sumptuous dinner with the one you love!
Infact, Puerto Banús in Marbella is absolutely spectacular- with luxury yachts and VIP services. Fancy surprising your partner by gifting them a ring? This is the perfect stop for high-end shopping too!

Last year, the quaint village of Villanueva de la Concepción in Antequera celebrated St Valentine’s Day by setting up the “10 steps for love”, a route that leads lovers to the prettiest and most prominent parts of the village, marked with delightful love notes. Look out for “Suéñame y te soñaré” (Dream of me and I’ll be dreaming of you) at the Avenida Blas Infante Viewpoint) and “Dejemos huella de nuestro amor” (Let’s leave a trace of our love) at the Calle Ribera. You’ll be inspired to create your own love-notes to go with your pictures here.

7. A date up in the sky!
Escape the world and head back up into cloud nine at Serranía de Ronda with a quiet, gentle hot-air balloon trip. The intimacy of a few square metres of basket, gently touched by the light breezes of the high skies will be the memory of a lifetime. Once you’re back down, you can also take a wine route.
