Are you looking for a romantic escape from everyday life with your partner? Have you got a #boyfriend/girlfriendofinstagram and really need to revamp your social media presence? Alternatively, are you and your partner looking for some down time and an escape from the kids? Well The Bungalow on Broken Head Beach may be just what you’re looking for. This private one-bedroom beachfront accommodation features a stunning architectural design with high-end finishes and is only a short drive from Byron town centre. What’s more, there are a host of romantic activities available at your accommodation, or nearby, that you can include to make your getaway even more special.
The Byron Bay region offers visitors a huge range of things to see and do. Here you can discover exceptional beaches and surf, indulge in world-class dining and restaurants, or explore the stunning natural surrounds. In fact, with so many options it can sometimes be difficult to wade through all of the choices. To make things easier, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite things to do on a romantic getaway or couples retreat in Byron Bay;
1. Indulge in a luxury spa treatment
Nothing exudes luxury like an indulgent couples massage or spa treatment, right? This will help you both to relax and to shake off the stresses of daily life. Choose from a range of healing treatments from Byron Spa Menu whose professional therapists will pamper you with treatments that include a beautiful range of organic skin care products. I feel relaxed just writing this.
What’s even better is that you can enjoy your spa treatment in the comfort and privacy of your luxury accommodation. Afterwards you can wander down to the beach for a cleansing swim or soak in the luxury bathtub together while enjoying a glass of wine. Sign me up!
2. Pamper your palate
We find that cooking can go one of two ways. It can be really comforting and a good way to escape from all your stresses when done correctly. Then there are the times that seem to drag on and you would honestly prefer to watch paint dry. For those days where staring at a wall is starting to sound rather appealing, we have the solution for you! Fortunately, you’ll find a broad range of restaurants and cafes on offer in Byron Bay’s town centre, only a short drive away. You don’t feel like making the drive in? Then why not consider hiring a private chef?
At The Bungalow we can arrange a professional chef to prepare a special meal during your stay, which is perfect for an anniversary or special occasion. You could even hire a chef to cater for your whole getaway if you like.
If all that sounds a bit extravagant, Claudia from Dinner is Served would be delighted to arrange freshly made meals, snacks and even boutique Australian wines to be waiting for you at check in – you simply need to heat, serve, eat and drink!
Of course, if you’re foodies and you can think of nothing more romantic than cooking together, why not visit the local Byron Farmer Markets to source delicious organic produce and whip up a gourmet feast in your fully-equipped kitchen at The Bungalow.
3. Experience Australia’s most luxurious sunrise
Most of us tend to associate waking up at sunrise with a feelings of intense discomfort and rightfully so. There are very few justifiable reasons to be waking up at sunrise, especially when you are on a romantic getaway. Fortunately (we think), it just so happens that Byron Bay has one of those rare exceptions!
Greet the day in style with a unique sunrise experience at one of Byron Bay’s favourite attractions. Toast the Sun, at the iconic Cape Byron Lighthouse, allows you and your loved one to soak up the early morning rays while enjoying a delicious three-course, local produce inspired breakfast that changes with the seasons.
This truly one-of-a-kind activity allows you and your partner to experience Australia’s first mainland sunrise and annual whale migration in pure luxury and style. All of the food is sourced from the local Farmer’s Market and is organic and pesticide-free wherever possible. Availability is strictly limited to two bookings each morning, so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.
4. Enjoy a romantic picnic where the rainforest meets the beach
If you’re keen to explore the stunning natural surroundings while you’re visiting Byron Bay, head to Broken Head Nature Reserve, which is right next to The Bungalow. Here, you can discover beautiful rainforest trails, wander along pristine beaches and perhaps spot some migrating whales in the distance. To take the romance to the next level, arrange a Deli Hamper before you go that you can enjoy in one of the many hidden picnic spots along the beach or in the rainforest.

Harvest Restaurant & Deli in nearby Newrybar is a destination in its own right. However, they also offer a range of scrumptious Deli Hampers with everything that you need for a romantic picnic lunch. Choose from options that include sweet and savoury gourmet treats, meats and cheeses, sourdough baguettes and pastries, fresh fruits and juices, and much more. You can even design your own luxury Deli Hamper to add a more personal touch or to cater to dietary requirements. They can even deliver it to you at The Bungalow.
5. Create special memories that will last a lifetime
If you’re looking to make this the ultimate romantic getaway with a proposal or maybe even an elopement, then you’re definitely in the right place.
