Last Updated on January 1, 2022

Here you can find traveler information and guide on the top honeymoon ideas for the Canary Islands. Make your honeymoon plan in the Canaries with our useful tips.

Dine at the secret restaurant overlooking the sea – Gran Canaria

A romantic dinner overlooking the ocean is always a winner in the romance stakes, but an evening spent at tiny Locanda El Roque, around 30 minutes’ drive from Las Palmas in Gran Canaria, puts seaside dining onto another level.

Jutting out into the crashing waves, this is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the island’s main tourist hubs. Soak up the 270-degree sea views as you dine on the freshest seafood and embrace the cooling breeze as the sun sets magnificently into the horizon.

Eat local delicacies cooked at world’s only volcanic restaurant – Lanzarote

Nature and science-loving newlyweds will have a blast at Timanfaya National Park. Take a bumpy ride together on camel back before you drive through this vast park, home to the Montañas del Fuego (Fire Mountains), created between 1730 and 1736 when more than 100 volcanoes, covering more than 50 km², erupted.

The park offers a fantastically alien Martian-style landscape; on your trip, you’ll see how temperatures just metres beneath the surface run between 400-600°C – throw water into a borehole and moments later, watch the steam erupt. Finish up the day at the fabulous Manrique-designed El Diablo, serving Canarian food using geothermal heat.

Stroll through the misty Laurisilva forest – La Gomera

At the heart of the island of La Gomera, Garajonay National Park has been a national park since 1981 and protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1986. The eco-system of this unique Laurisilva forest is home to over half the Laurisilva population of the Canaries.

On a clear day, the islands of El Hierro, La Palma, Tenerife and Gran Canaria can all be seen from the park’s highest point. Breathing in the heady, damp air scented with evergreens and getting splashed by the gorgeous waterfalls hidden in the tree canopies is a sure-fire winner and the perfect way to spend a romantic day.

Gaze at the stars – La Palma

Wrap up warm and head to the Observatory of El Roque de Los Muchachos in La Palma. Home to one of the biggest collections of of telescopes in the world, the fantastic quality of the sky means this is an incredible spot for star-gazing – you may even see a comet! You’ll learn a lot about the night sky from your hosts, who are passionate about astronomy, and leave with your head in the clouds and stars in your eyes.

Take a romantic trip on horseback – Fuerteventura

Horse-riding is surprisingly popular throughout the Canary Islands, so whether you’ve been riding since you were a child or are a nervous first-timer, it’s something you simply have to try. Whether it’s a canter along the stunning coastline with the wind in your hair or a gentle trot through arid, rocky landscapes, watching the sunset from on horseback is an experience honeymooners simply can’t miss.
