The Costas

For some the hustle and bustle of city breaks may not fit in with the idea of a romantic getaway.

Choosing to stay on Spain’s extensive coastline is the ideal alternative – with Costa del Sol and Costa de la Luz offering some of the best sunset spots in Spain.

Inland from the Costa del Sol, Ronda is perhaps one of the prettiest locations in Malaga province. A good option for a day trip. Its dramatic gorge linking the old town is the perfect setting for an afternoon stroll.

Spain’s third biggest city comes with none of the intensity of Madrid or Barcelona – feeling more like a giant town – making it the perfect city break away from city life itself. Treat yourself to a romantic stay at Hospes Palau del Mar.

Dont miss the Agua de Valencia (Cava and fresh orange juice) drink. Valencia still feels very Spanish and has beaches close to the city too.
