WHETHER you’re new to the Costa del Sol, or you’ve been here for years, chances are you’ll be going on a romantic date or two on Spain’s sunny coast – be it with your partner of 30 years or someone you just met at the pub.
Fortunately, the Costa del Sol is one of the best destinations for those who find themselves lucky in love, with plenty of romantic activities to help you get the sparks flying. Here are some of the top first date ideas for Brits in the Costa del Sol.
As shown in the above infographic, research from the casino comparison site topratedcasinos.co.uk has found that where you’re from in the UK affects how lucky you are in love. Singletons in the North East of England had the least luck finding romantic partners, while people in Northern Ireland seemed to be the luckiest. Whatever the case, the good news is that, with so many exciting first date activities, moving to the Costa del Sol could make finding Mr or Mrs Right a lot easier.
The popular sporting activities on the sunny coast are bound to make a date to remember and can be a great way to break the ice. If you really want to make a big impression, why not take your beau on a jetskiing date – what could be more romantic than gliding across the open waters, arm-in-arm as the sun is setting? Choose a company like marbellajetski.com, which specialises in couples’ jetskiing activities to help your date run as smoothly as can be.
If you’re after something a little bit more low-key that still involves getting physical with your significant other, then consider a romantic hike along the Senda Litoral Mijas in Malaga, which features a newly-completed boardwalk. The views along this peaceful trail are truly heart-stopping and will be more than enough to help you win the heart of your date.
Perhaps you’d prefer something a little more relaxed on a first date. Book yourself onto a romantic food tour of the region with nerjatapastours.com, and see if food is the best way to win a lover’s heart. The tour features all the greatest hits of Spanish cuisine, as well as some classic aphrodisiacs including oysters, asparagus and gallons of full-bodied red wine.
Of course, sometimes the most memorable dates are the most casual, so you should never discount the simple things in life. A date as laid-back as a walk down to the beach with a picnic of fresh food and chilled wine as you enjoy the view of the sun setting behind the Mediterranean waves is just as good as any fancy dinner.
So, while singletons in the UK might not be so lucky in love, that doesn’t have to be the case when you’re living in the Costa del Sol. These fun first date activities could help you find the one.
