It may seem as if you just finished packing away the last of your Christmas decorations, but it is time to start planning your next gift-giving holiday, the most romantic one of the year. Yes, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and if you want to retain your title of Gift Giver Supreme, we suggest a getaway to the beaches of Port Aransas and a stay in our romantic love nests at The Dunes. The Dunes offers the best views at one location in Port Aransas. Look north to the Ship Channel and watch boats and ships of all sizes cruise in and out of the harbor areas. Look to the south and view the Port Aransas beachline to the Gulf of Mexico. Look to the east for the beachfront where you can step off the property and right on the beach. This guide to the most romantic Texas Valentine’s Day activities in Port Aransas and all the cozy comforts and cuddles you can expect to enjoy in our holiday hideaways will ensure that love will shine brightly in February of 2024.

Mornings are for Breakfast in Bed

The best traditions are the ones that continue for years to come, and breakfast in bed on Valentine’s Day could become your thing. She (or he) has been at the helm of the stove for as long as you have been together, but being able to sleep a little longer and wake up to a favorite meal is the one you are going to make this holiday stand out. Your cooking skills aren’t up to par? Pastries from Irie’s Island Bakery (200 W Avenue G) and freshly blended mimosas hardly take up any effort but will bring the same grateful response.

Sweets for Your Sweetest

Can you really consider it a successful Valentine’s Day without chocolate? Fortunately, you won’t have to worry about that when you take some time out of your getaway to explore the sweet treats offered by Winton’s Island Candy. Located at 601 S Alister Street and housed inside a colorful cottage that has survived hurricanes and economic downturns for nearly 30 years and the sweets inside will bring a smile to the face of the one you love most. Chocolates, salt water taffy, gummies, caramels; if there’s something sweet you can’t find, you just aren’t looking carefully enough!

Something Shiny

The gift of Port Aransas keeps on giving with a visit to Tippy Toes, a local jewelry store that focus on toes and ankles, providing a stunning selection of toe rings and anklets that will sparkle brightly when wading through the chilly waters that surround Port A. Located at 345 N Alister Street Suite D, they also sell earrings and ear cuffs helping your Valentine sparkle from head to toe.

A Massage Built for Two

The experiences you share together will help build a stronger more powerful relationship over time, and a couple’s massage enjoyed at Massage Medic, 420 East Cotter Avenue, Suite B, is definitely one that you will never forget. In business for over 20 years and offering the most talented hands in the state, the romance of a couple’s massage will add joy to your Valentine’s Day vacation on the shores of Port Aransas.

The Perfect Ending to a Perfect Day

The holiday would not be complete without a romantic meal and for this Valentine’s Day we recommend Grumbles Seafood Company for the perfect ending to a beautiful and romantic Texas day. Located at 850 Tarpon Street and featuring a seafood-centric menu with local specialties, while offering stunning views of the sea, it is impossible to order a bad meal, and if you happen to be dining at sunset even better. Their dessert menu isn’t all that large but be sure to save room to share a piece of their delicious pina colada cheesecake for a sweet finale you will never forget.

Wait, There’s More!

Just when you think the day can’t get any better, The Dunes comes up with the best idea ever, a bonfire on the beach! Slow Ur Roll Bonfires does the hard work of building the bonfire, leaving you and your Valentine to reap the benefits, of cuddling, snuggling, and perhaps roasting marshmallows for the s’mores that everyone loves. Also offering heart-shaped pits, photography sessions, and signs painted with special messages, we can’t imagine a better way to spend a romantic night at the beach! This is a popular activity, so be sure to make your reservations way in advance, something that can be done at the Slow Ur Roll website.

The most memorable moments may be the ones you enjoy in our holiday love nests at The Dunes. Watching Hallmark movies on state-of-the-art televisions, snuggling together under a warm blanket on balconies that overlook the vast waters, letting the sounds of waves crashing onto the sands below provide beautiful music that will accompany your Texas love story.
