6 Date Ideas for Valentine’s Day in Byron Bay 2020

1. Hot air balloon experience.

Is there any better way to start your day than watching the sun rise in a hot balloon overlooking the entire Northern Rivers? It can get a little chilly up there, even in summer, so be sure to bring a blanket to cuddle up with your loved one.

You can either save a few bucks and take a tour with other guests, or pay that bit extra for a two-person VIP hot air balloon flight (plus the pilot). You can also opt to have a champagne breakfast on your trip and book a transfer from your accommodation if you’re only visiting the area. 

We highly recommend calling and booking your hot air balloon experience now, as Valentine’s Day is going to be hard to get. If you did miss out, don’t despair! There is plenty more you can do on Valentine’s Day in Byron Bay.

2. Breakfast at a beachfront café in Byron Bay.

Whether you woke up early to catch that hot balloon or opted for a little sleep in, you’re going to want breakfast and a caffeine hit. Lucky for you, there are a few different highly rated beachfront cafés and restaurants in Byron to choose from.

Most of the breakfast venues in Byron Bay open around 7:00am, give or take half an hour. As the region is big on local produce and healthy options, you’re going to find a lot of fresh smoothies, fruit bowls, vegetable stacks and breakfast bowls, but you’ll find all your favourites too. After a Byron Big Breaky, you’re going to be stuffed to the brim!

Of course, you’re already on the beachfront, so walking off a full belly is the perfect excuse to wander along the coastline.

3. Relax at a Northern Rivers day spa.

With the hustle and bustle of daily life, it’s often rare couples get time to unwind together — other than a quiet night in. Booking a couple’s day spa package will give you both time together and relaxation.

As there are many day spas in the Northern Rivers, you’re also in the perfect spot for an indulgent Valentine’s Day in Byron Bay. While you’re booking, enquire as to whether they can include champagne, a morning tea or other little treats for you and your special someone.

4. Grab some lunch from a local takeaway place.

After your massage and other relaxing treatments, you’re probably going to be both hungry and in need of a nap. Get the best of both worlds by dropping into one of Byron Bay’s takeaway spots and taking it home to enjoy before an afternoon snooze.

Once you’re bright eyed and bushy tailed again, you’ll have enough energy to move onto your next stop for your Valentine’s Day in the Northern Rivers.

5. Watch the sunset at the Cape Byron Lighthouse.

Are you even in Byron Bay if you didn’t head to the lighthouse and do the calf-killing walk to the most eastern point of Australia? If you haven’t made it there yet, watching the sunset on Valentine’s Day is the best time to see it!

A quick warning; the parking is most likely going to be a nightmare. For the fitter couples, you may want to make the trek from where you’re staying to the lighthouse to save yourself the pain of finding a spot.

6. Book in at a local Byron Bay restaurant and bar.

Valentine’s Day isn’t complete without a romantic dinner and a drink or two. The best part is, the big day is on a Friday this year, so you can stay out late and get a sleep in the next day.

Every restaurant in the western world is going to be pretty booked up, so if we were you, we’d find where you want to go and book in now! To make your job easier, why not check out our full list of restaurants in Byron Bay on Localsearch!
