Valentine's day is our favorite day of the year. If you're looking to take your loved ones to a romatic date in Sydney, here are list of our best selected (GENSEN) date plans for you...
Swim At Sydney Secret Beach: Lady Martins Beach
A secluded Point Piper beach which can be hard to find is Lady Martins Beach. Lady Martins is located in Felix Bay accessed by heading down a narrow lane next to the Royal Prince Edward Yacht Club that leads directly to the beach (it's off to the left of the Yacht club if you're facing the ocean from the road). The beach is open to the general public but because of its restrictive access it does not get over crowded. Lady Martin's beach is dog-friendly as long as the pups are kept on a leash and there are a couple of fences and poles along the shoreline to tie a leash to while you go for a swim. The beach offers sweeping views of the harbour and it is the perfect place to relax, take a dip and catch up on some reading.
Cremorne Point Walk
This walk will take you around the entire shoreline discovering the beautiful Sydney Harbour and Sydney city skyline. The walk is renowned for its flora (Sydney Red Gum, Coastal Banksia and Mat Rash, Swamp She Oak and the Red Spider Flower) and Fauna. In summer, take your swimmers and take a dip in MacCallum's seawater pool. If you're on the other side of the bridge we suggest getting a ferry to either Mosman bay wharf or to Cremorne point wharf. Doing the walk between the two wharves is a perfect afternoon activity. Stop in at the Mosman rowers club near Mosman bay wharf for a drink and a feed too. The balcony at Mosman rowers is a great spot to sit and watch the boat rock and the sunlight hit the Mosman mansions across the bay.
Take In The View From Mrs. Macquarie's Point
Stroll through the Domain and past the Botanic Gardens to Mrs. Macquarie's Point, where you'll find breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour!
Even with a few tourists about, there's still plenty of space to take a quick selfie with the beautiful backdrop of the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. Lady Macquarie's point is one of the best Sydney Harbour vantage points for these Sydney icons.
Any time of day is great for a bike ride or a run, or just a walk with friends, family, or that special someone. It's even nice to go by yourself to find a quiet place to sit and reflect.If you're around after dark in the summer months, you may just be able to sneak a peek at a critically acclaimed new film screening at St.George OpenAir Cinema. Catch a glimpse of some of the newest hit movies soon to grace the screen at your local cinema as brushtail possums scamper past; just be sure to watch out for low flying bats!
Picnic At Watsons Bay
Enjoy a beautiful picnic on the ocean side at Watsons bay! There are some great secluded areas around the bay to enjoy a quiet and romantic picnic with beautiful scenery! Even better would be to do it at night and then head to one of the local bars for a drink.
Don't forget to bring a rug, picnic basket with all your goodies such as strawberries, chocolate dipping sauce, sandwiches and champagne- good idea would be to pack all her favourite foods as this would be more meaningful - oh and you could even include a rose for that extra touch. Watsons Bay looks over the harbour and if You walk around the shore line enough you will find some spectacular little hide aways to make your date secluded and private.
Let free your inner child at Sydney Luna Park

The Sunset Over Sydney Icons
These seats on Sydney's North Shore foreshore walk make for a spectacular sunset viewing. To get there either walk around the foreshore walk to mccallum pool or drive/catch the bus down milson road to about number 30 and walk down the path to the foreshore and pool. You can sit and watch as the sun disappears over the headland and through the Harbour bridge. The light from the sunset cascades across the water and turns the sails of the Opera house a beautiful pink colour at dusk. The spot has plenty of grass around it and would be an impressive spot to take a date on a romantic sunset picnic.
