February is fast approaching, and that means it is time for some romance! Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with your other half and let them know just how much they mean to you. Byron Bay is the ideal location for this; surrounded by the stunning landscape and an array of fun and intimate activities, there is so much to be shared together and create sweet memories to cherish for a long time.
For the food lovers out there, there is an array of delicious destinations to head to both in and around Byron town and making a special reservation is a foolproof way to spoil your partner this Valentine's. The Hut is a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant nestled in the luscious hinterland. The idyllic setting in Possum Creek makes it a must for a noteworthy occasion. Originally an old school house, the beautiful historic features remain but with a fresh contemporary twist. Their impressive menu is created for sharing and celebrating local produce from both land and sea. Indulge in their signature octopus, wagyu steak and truffle-infused dishes carefully paired with organic Australian wines or a bottle of celebratory champagne. They offer a shuttle service to and from Byron, but if you are in search of the ultimate night together, the Friday Hut Road Estate is located right next door. A spectacular two-acre property that comes with a pool, private cinema and extensive private gardens. Turn your long lunch into a weekend getaway spent in the utmost luxury.
An all-encompassing experience together is an entertaining way to spend this affection-filled holiday, and Zephyr Horses offers a once-in-a-lifetime coastal ride. This Byron-based ranch has a wide range of personalised tours through the tropical woodlands and open-ended beaches. No matter your level of experience, their guides will show you the way for an adventure-packed outing. Get saddled up for a horseback pub tour, private lessons or a blissful stroll through nature. They also have professional photography and ariel video packages so you can relive your equestrian escapades over and over again. We highly recommend it for a romantic day out!
One of the many great things about Byron is that there is so much to do within Mother Nature's playground. Finding a secluded spot for a shared picnic is a delightful way to see an afternoon go by (the only hard part will be deciding where to go!) Whites Beach is a breathtaking slice of the coast and is hidden away from the busier main beaches. You will need a car to get there; situated past Broken Head, it is only a fifteen-minute drive from town. A cove-style beach, the white sand and crystal clear water are simply unparalleled. Be prepared to climb down the steep steps, but trust us, the effort is worth the pristine view once you get there. Pack with you some of the finest produce from the variety of delicatessens nearby; Bay Grocer in Byron and Newrybar Merchants are a couple of favourite stops off for the best cheese board ingredients. If you prefer the vibrancy of town, Wategoes Beach or the Pass are two of the most popular beaches in Byron to set up camp with a big throw and the company of your better half in paradise.
Love is about getting creative, and sharing that common ground with your partner is a beautiful way to bond on Valentine's Day. Byron School of Clay is a fun activity to connect and get playful with their private workshops and pottery courses. Learn how to throw a wheel and handcraft your own bowls, mugs and more from their organic stoneware clay. You get to keep your favourite pieces, which they glaze and paint for you, which are a lovely sentimental take-home gift, so your morning coffee mug will be a reminder of a romantic outing together.
You can’t beat a relaxing couples massage, and what better day to surprise your special someone than Valentine's? Comma is a contemporary spa where you can revive under the guidance of their experienced team. Offering a whole wellness journey, take a moment of calm hand-in-hand with a holistic and healing massage, body brush or thermodynamic basalt stone treatments. Customise your experience with their wholesome menu and curative environment for the most tranquil of hot dates.
