For the ultimate romantic getaway in Almeria, we’ve put together a list of activities you and your couple need to do.
Almeria is home to the outstanding Cabo de Gata national park.
Rent a car and spend a day falling in love with the incredible landscapes, exquisite beaches, and unforgettable views.
Watch a sunset at the Cabo de Gata Lighthouse or cosy up under a blanket to watch the waves.
If you want to pull out all the stops, book a night of stargazing at the Calar Alto Astronomical Observatory.
Located in the Sierra de Los Filabres north of Almeria, the observatory has recently opened its doors to visitors and now offers tours with fine dining options for a special night under the stars.
Almeria city is steeped in history. Start your Valentine’s trip off with a walk around the majestic Alcazaba.
Perched on Saint Christopher’s mount, the Alcazaba was one of the biggest and most noteworthy citadels built by the Al-Andalus.
Continue your cultural experience with an afternoon of pampering in the ancient baths where you can treat your loved one to spa treatments, Valentines Day Specials, and a romantic dinner.
If you want to do something different for Valentine’s in Almeria, why not pay a visit to a Wild West set.
Almeria is home to the only desert in Europe, the Tabernas desert.
Since the sixties and seventies, it has turned into a popular Hollywood filming location.
Best known for the Sergio Leone Westerns starring Clint Eastwood, there are now three fantastic Wild West sets that you can visit and enjoy an afternoon in the life of a Wild West cowboy.
There are no shortage of incredibly romantic things to do in Almeria for Valentine’s (or if you just want to spoil that special someone).
Steeped in rich history and home to one of the most magical natural parks in Spain, Almeria is a truly unique destination.
A resident in Almeria also suggested that their perfect day “would be to take a drive to Carboneras and visit one of the many fish restaurants there, then come home to a night in by the fire and enjoy a tipple with the one I love.”
Eliis Wayman, owner of the La Cantina Social restaurant, said: “Being a romantic fool myself I always like to go for a romantic meal on Valentines. Whether I can get a lady to come with me is a different Matter! I have a lot of history with Hola Ola on the beach in Mojacar.”
“Perfect place to sit by the sea and enjoy some beautiful seafood. My family and I have been going there for years and have had many celebrations there. Raul and his staff has always looked after us. If you’re in the mood for a steak to give you the required protein to see you through a long night with the love of your life I don’t think you can beat La Cabana…and of course..we will have a candlelit evening at our little den of romance La Cantina Social in Turre.”
Woo your sweetheart with a Valentine’s weekend filled with sunshine, free tapas, breathtaking views, and a spot of culture.
What could be better?
