The Perfect Romantic Date in La Jolla: How to Plan It
Creating Romance in La Jolla
Candlelight. Wine. A moonlight walk on the beach. These are are classic images of romance for good reason. Whether you have a special occasion to celebrate or simply want to spend special time together, La Jolla’s sandy shores are here to set the perfect backdrop for the perfect date. We’ve researched the ultimate affection-maximizing spots and want to share them with you. Let us help you make the itinerary for a truly exceptional date.
Have a Romantic Picnic.
Start the day off working in those extra smile-inducing details. Packing a picnic lunch is a great example. Lay out a blanket and adorn it with your date’s favorite snacks and treats (purchased ahead of time) to show you truly know them. We recommend having the picnic on the grassy areas at La Jolla Cove or La Jolla Shores, where you can eat while overlooking the water.
Try Something New.
Have they always wanted to try kayaking? Do you both love to bicycle? Try doing something together you haven’t before! Whether it’s cycling the Bird Rock Path for the first time or trying a completely new adventure by paragliding…it’ll make the date simply unforgettable.
The Perfect Spa-t for Romance.
The work and needs of the everyday don’t always offer a lot of time for daily romance. Pair time relaxing and rejuvenating with time put aside to focus on you two. At the Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa, you can purchase a couples massage. And if you’re interested in more, there’s always extra services and packages for you to choose from.
Fine Dining…Preferably with an Ocean View
Sometimes the way to the heart is through the stomach. Share fondness for both food and one another at one of La Jolla’s divine, fine dining locations. To ensure an ocean view, we suggest going to the best of the best: George’s at the Cove or Eddie Vs. Make sure to book reservations ahead. Not only does it guarantee a table, but it shows your date that you took the special time and care to plan the meal ahead of time, making them feel that much more special. And, once you’ve been led to your table, ordering of wine and delighting in the menu can take over.
Nighttime Walk on the Beach
Walking along a La Jolla beach at sunset tends to look like a scene from a movie… perfect. As night takes over the sky, the lights of the surrounding hills and cliffs light up like a daily Christmas. It’s the perfect ending to a perfect day.
