Surprise your partner with a trip to these fabulous islands! Whether you’re getting down on one knee or not is up to you: whichever island you choose we’ve got the perfect place for you to declare your undying love.
Read on and find out the most spectacular and romantic Canary Island locations for your unforgettable day.

1. Sunset at Maspalomas dunes

If there’s one place that leaves people visiting for the first time in absolute awe, it’s the Maspalomas Dunes nature reserve. The view you get from the viewpoint at the dunes is impressive: a sea of never-ending sand. This spectacular landscape is all the more so because of the way the ocean and sand come together, with the pretty Maspalomas lighthouse making it an even more postcard-worthy spot for your romantic proposal.

We recommend you hit the dunes about 30 minutes before sunset, when the light is at its most enchanting. With the sky tinged with oranges and reds and magical light, it’s the perfect setting to declare your love for your partner and ask for their hand in marriage.
You could get a picnic basket with a lovely tablecloth, some delicious snacks, and two glasses to toast with your loved one, as you sit on the warm sand with the setting sun in the background. The perfect plan, right?

2. Surfing the waves at Sotavento Beach

If you’re more of a beach and water sports person, we’ve got the plan for you. A romantic getaway in the south of Fuerteventura. The endless, sandy Sotavento beach on Jandía Peninsula is the perfect place to start the day on your board, surfing the waves and having a go at windsurfing or kitesurfing. And after all that fun in the sea, it’ll be time to recharge your batteries with a delicious lunch at the beach bar. This beach bar is the perfect place to enjoy a refreshing drink or delicious lunch – and it’s also on one of the most impressive beaches in the Canary Islands. The fine golden sand and crystal clear waters make it a magical and romantic setting for your proposal. 

After your meal, you could go for a romantic stroll, barefoot along the beach. And because this is such a vast beach you’ll easily get some privacy, away from the crowds. Ideal for popping the question! From that moment on, Sotavento Beach will be your favourite, most romantic place in the whole of the Canary Islands. 

3. Under the La Palma sky

From the sea let’s head up to the stars… the La Palma sky is world-renowned. This beautiful island is a designated Starlight Reserve, making it the perfect setting for a romantic night beneath the stars. We recommend you head to an astronomy viewpoint to take in the starry night sky with your partner, such as the one at Llano del Jable. There’s very little light pollution there, so it’s the perfect place to see the impressive night sky. Why not take some blankets and lie beneath the spectacular sky, gazing at the stars together? A magical moment to tell your partner your deepest desires, and how excited you are to spend the rest of your life with them.

4. Sailboat trip in the south of Tenerife

If you’ve dreamed about asking your partner to marry you as you sail across the water with the dolphins by your side, Tenerife is the destination for you. You can rent a sailing boat with a skipper for a few hours, and take a romantic ride over the Tenerife waters, surrounded by dolphins and whales. You’ll see them up close if you’re lucky… Quite the show! 

You couldn’t fail to leave your partner speechless if you wait till the incredible moment nature gives you that unrivalled gift.

5. At the Roque Nublo summit

If you’re a couple who love hiking and nature, conquering the Roque Nublo summit together could be incredibly romantic. Right in the heart of the island of Gran Canaria, the charm of this location is the nature. You’re surrounded by pine forests with the island of Tenerife as a backdrop. And from the summit you get unbelievable views of Teide! 
From the main road, it’s a pretty steady climb of one kilometre. Just enjoy the peaceful walk and take in the wonderful landscape. Once you get to the top, you’ll see the impressive volcanic rock, and all that’s left to do is find the perfect proposal location. In fact, you can’t fail – every single view is spectacular!
