Stressed out about what to do for Valentine’s Day, the one day of the year designated to celebrate love? According to, four of the top 10 things to do on Valentine’s are: Get Away, Get Physical, Get a Massage, Dress Up, and all of these can all be done in the relaxing beach town of Rocky Point. Getting Away on a mini vacay can be the perfect combination of relaxation and excitement. Only a 1 hour drive from the US border and 3.5 hours from Phoenix and Tucson, Rocky Point is ideal for a weekend getaway. With the Presidents Day holiday being right on the heels of Valentine’s Day, the weekend is the perfect time to take a road trip.  Once you are here you will find numerous options for activities and entertainment.  There’s nothing better to revitalize your romance than a trip to this beach destination.

The beach is also perfect for the next item on the list- Getting Physical, literally. Go for a morning run on Sandy Beach, Mirador Beach or Las Conchas to start off your day.  Later, take in the sunset on one of our beaches or take a moonlit walk at night.  What better way to unwind and enjoy nature than to get active with the one you love?!

Getting a Massage continues to be one of the most popular and enjoyable things to do on Valentine’s Day.  Fortunately, in Rocky Point there is no shortage of spas to choose from.  Most spas offer additional treatments for pampering such as manicures, pedicures, and facials, however, a couple’s massage is a great way to unwind and relax together, or treat your partner to one or more spa services. You can even get a massage right on the beach as the sound of the Sea of Cortez lulls you into relaxation. Spas can be found both on Sandy Beach and in town and many have a bi-lingual staff. If time in your condo is your goal, you can schedule private massage right in your beach rental. Whatever your preference, a massage will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Dressing Up There is something about getting primped that makes you feel great, confident, ready for anything. Once you are decked out, you can dine with an ocean view or grab dinner in town. With an abundance of restaurants in Rocky Point, the options for dining are limitless- from Italian and Mediterranean to Classic American and traditional Mexican.  After dinner burn off those calories by grooving to some live music.
