It is not without a good reason that Ibiza is synonymous with fun, nightlife, and crazy fall scenes. The island is popular as an adult-only vacation destination for people across the world. There are breathtaking coastlines where you can swim, sunbathe, and enjoy picnics.

Some of the best attractions of Ibiza are nightclubs and hotels just off the coast. The air is filled with electronic dance music that attracts large crowds in colorful clothing. You can also take the party out into the sea. Boat cruises tour the Mediterranean, taking merrymakers to observe marine life, including the luminescent jellyfish.  

For lovers of history, Ibiza is a World Heritage site. You can discover hundreds of Phoenician cultural sites dating back to the 7th century. There are also underground caverns where pirates and smugglers hid treasures. The biggest of these is the Can Marca, a large cave with waterfalls, stalagmites, and waterfalls.

Nicknamed the island of pirates, Ibiza retains cultures and art from ancient seafarers. As such, the influences of Romans, Vandals, Byzantines, and Arabs can still be felt today. 

The island has cliffs and mountains to get your holiday dose of cardio workout away from the caves and sand. Dalt Vila is up in the mountain overlooking the sea, an old town from the Phoenician era.

There’s some excitement that comes from being surrounded by fellow holidaymakers, but if what you are looking for is a quieter and more relaxed couple in Spain experience, then Formentera could just be your destination.

One of the Balearic Islands, Formentera, lies to the South of the island of Ibiza. Pristine beaches, undisturbed nature, remote vibes, and picturesque landscapes are but a few phrases to describe the island.

On Illetes Beach, you can enjoy lounging on the white sands sandwiched by therapeutic blue waters. You can also engage in water sports with rental equipment and explore the preserved seagrass and marine ecosystem that’s part of the Ses Salines National Park off the coast.

To help you take in the island’s beautiful scenery, there are four towers, originally built as part of a defense system, now prominent landmarks. Like most other tourists, you can try Torre de Punta Prima and Torre de la Gavina.

For the ultimate urban holiday, Benidorm is the destination to visit as a couple in Spain. This is a beachfront city with a skyscraper skyline and vibrant nightlife. The area is iconic for its two crescent-shaped beaches, Levante and Poniente, locally translated to “sun rising” and “sun setting,” respectively.

Levante is Benidorm’s busiest beach, stretching over 1.2 miles (ca. 2 km). To get your fill of Spanish cuisine, make your way to Tapas Alley, the center of the old town. The aroma of patatas bravas (spicy fried potatoes), albondigas (meatballs), and cañas (beers) fill the air.

Poniente beach is quieter and best suited for a discreet romantic getaway. Couples with kids also find the spot ideal for family vacations. Here, even with a wheelchair, you can comfortably avoid the water and sand by sticking to the boardwalks.  

Water-oriented theme parks dot this Spanish city, including the famous Terra Mítica, a Roman, Greek, and Egyptian attraction. Don’t miss the Titánide, an inverted roller coaster propelling you up to 100 km/h on loops and disk-shaped bends. Besides, in the outskirts of Levente are Aqualandia and Mundomar twinned family theme parks.

To keep off the summer crowd, hike over to the Benidorm Cross, located in the Sierra Helada natural park. The reserve comes with 300-meter-high cliffs and trails spanning across 13,750 acres of pristine land.

Is your idea of a romantic getaway boisterous and full of life? Then you will be right at home in Lanzarote. Apparently, the number of daily visitors to the island of Lanzarote is typically more than half the total number of its all-year-round inhabitants!

Yet, the versatility of Lanzarote as a tourist destination also means that Spain couples looking to spend some time alone can also feel welcome here.

For starters, Lanzarote enjoys a great climate all year round. With temperatures averaging at around 220C (720F), you can almost always swim and sunbathe at the island’s stunning, unspoiled beaches.

Speaking of beaches, Playa de Papagayo tops the list with its cliff-sheltered, fine golden sands, and if you are feeling adventurous, you can head to the remote Playa de las Conchas on the northern coast of Lanzarote. There are several other beaches where you can swim, snorkel, and kayak.

The product of a volcanic eruption, this island gives you a spectacular view of volcanic landscapes. More specifically, you can tour the most remarkable transformation of the island’s volcanic terrain that stands as the César Manrique Museum. It not only stands in a lava field but is also the center of the Island’s art and architecture.

Want a taste of some good domestic wine/you will be happy to know that Lanzarote makes its own wine from its homegrown vines. Just head to La Geria in the south-central part of the island!
