Looking to get away for Valentine’s Day or a romantic weekend with your significant other? There are plenty of romantic things to do in Gulf Shores. Gulf Shores Alabama offers picturesque beaches, pristine parks, and plenty of things to do and see. Whether you love being active together, enjoy trying new cuisines, or want to pamper yourself with a spa treatment, Gulf Shores is an ideal destination.

A stay at Martinique on the Gulf for a romantic getaway is ideal because you’re close enough to all the attractions and things to do, but you’re also far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet. Martinique on the Gulf sits along the Fort Morgan Peninsula next to the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge offering a stunningly perfect setting to spend time with one another.

Martinique on the Gulf Resort Amenities

Martinique on the Gulf is not only right along the Gulf of Mexico offering beach access and stunning views, but it also has tons of onsite amenities. Unwind in the whirlpool spa, ride along the community bike paths, or play a game of tennis on the lighted courts. There are also two clubhouses, grill areas, pavilions, and more. 

Run for Your Love

Do you and your partner love running together? If so, then the 2020 Sweetheart 5K and Sea Turtle Half Marathon on February 15, 2020, is the perfect way to celebrate. The festivities start and end at The Hangout in Gulf Shores. There is also a Sweetheart 1 Mile Fun Run for those who don’t want to invest too much time and effort into the race. Enjoy a scenic path and plenty of fun afterward.

Renew Your Vows

Those married couples who may have distant memories of their wedding day will love the LuLu’s 12th Annual Tropical Reunion Wedding Vow Renewal Ceremony. This completely free event lets you and your dearest one relive the most special day of your lives. Located at LuLu’s Restaurant in Gulf Shores, this Wedding Vow Renewal Ceremony starts at 2 p.m. Along with the vows from Hurricane Jane, an ordained minister, you’ll get a wedding vow renewal certificate, prizes to couples, a champagne toast, wedding cake, and flowers for the bride.

Spa Day

There’s no better way to pamper yourself than with a spa day. Spas of Eden and Fusion are both popular spas in the area where you can get a hot stone massage, body wrap, facial, and even a couple’s massage. Be sure to call ahead of time to reserve your spot here as it’s a popular time of the year for spa services.

Have a Romantic Dinner

All of our condo rentals at Martinique on the Gulf feature full kitchens where you can whip up a great meal for two. You can sit out on your private patio and take in the views and hear the crash of the waves. But if you’d rather spend your time relaxing and enjoying one another’s company, there plenty of laid back and delicious Gulf Shores restaurants. Try The Royal Oyster, The Sunset Cork Room, or Tacky Jacks Gulf Shores. 

Watch the Sunset on the Beach

Sometimes it’s the simplest things that are the most memorable. Grab a few snacks and a blanket and head to the beach to watch the magical colors as the sun goes down. One of the best reasons to visit the beach as the sun goes down is that it’s much less crowded during the day. When you stay at Martinique on the Gulf, you have beachfront access so you don’t even have to leave the property.
