Capture the Moment With a Romantic Holiday to Malaga

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Nov. 29, 2012) - Facebook has recently announced the introduction of its new 'couple' pages. These timeline pages detail the pictures, wall posts and other interactions of individuals who have listed themselves as 'in a relationship' on Facebook. Friends will now be able to click on the relationship status to go to this new page and trace the couple's evolution, from first date to steady commitment and marriage.

Social networking has always involved a certain amount of one-upmanship, and the introduction of couple pages might lead some to wish for their love story to take place against a more exciting backdrop - perhaps with the odd photo of exotic beaches and trips abroad! There are plenty of romantic destinations and cheap Monarch flights that can be combined to produce jaw-droppingly gorgeous cover photos.

The Spanish city of Malaga offers couples plenty of chances to stroll through cobbled streets and take in a few museums and galleries before enjoying an intimate dinner by candlelight. The city is located on the famous Costa del Sol, so take an afternoon out to relax in one of its many gardens or parks before meandering down to the seafront for an early evening cocktail by the sea.

One must-see stop on your trip is the Plaza de la Merced. This is Malaga's most popular square, bustling with painters and illustrators, and conveniently located close to the Picasso Birthplace Museum - home to a fantastic catalogue of the artist's works in various mediums, including ceramics, prints and illustrations.

Visiting the palaces and castles of Malaga is another must: spend a day at La Alcazaba, the palace for Nazarite kings, and view the remains of a Roman theatre in the entrance to the castle. This structure dates back to the 11th century and offers spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.

Finish your day memorably by treating yourself to some delicious traditional Spanish fare. Tapas restaurants are always great for couples because you can share lots of different little dishes - try patatas bravas (fried potatoes served with spicy tomato sauce) for a sure-fire tasty choice. Raise a glass as you watch the sun go down and ask a passing waiter to take a snap to commemorate your perfect day together - guaranteed to get a few Facebook 'Likes'!
