Why not book a stay with us at Mariner’s North Holiday Apartments and treat your loved one to a special romantic weekend away? With so much to see and do in Townsville we’ve put together our top five romantic ways to spend Valentine’s Day, an anniversary or any other occasion –  guaranteed to show your special someone how much you care.

1 – Brekkie on your balcony 

Welcome in the day with an indulgent breakfast on your own one-bedroom apartment balcony with exceptional ocean views. There’s no better way to show you care than by whipping up a hot brekkie or a continental-style breakfast for your loved one. Think bacon and eggs, croissants, fresh berries and freshly squeezed orange juice. There’s a Cole’s supermarket just minutes away from our accommodation where you can stock up on supplies the night before or from 7am. Your fully-equipped kitchen has everything you’ll need to create that romantic meal.

2 – Squish your toes in the sand

With near perfect weather all year round you can take a walk along the beach, right outside your apartment. Walk hand-in-hand along the water’s edge, splash your feet in the warm ocean water or collect sea shells to make a love heart in the sand. If you are feeling a little energetic you can stroll along The Strand which is 2.2 kilometres of world-class beachfront promenade, lined with palm trees. Enjoy a romantic dip in the water, walk out onto the Strand Pier or stop off at one of the many cafes and restaurants along the way for a coffee.

3 – Take a dive together

Experience some one the best snorkelling spots in the world together with a Townsville Great Barrier Reef snorkel tour. Pack a special lunch and snacks and spend the day on-board a 14 metre custom built vessel as you get up close and personal with an incredible array of marine life, from colourful fish and corals through to turtles and stingrays. Don’t forget to bring a sense of adventure and an underwater camera to capture some incredible memories.

4 – Swim and sunset bubbles

At the base of Kissing Point Fortification at the far end of The Strand promenade is the Strand Rockpool. Apart from being in an aptly named area for romance, why not enjoy a late afternoon swim in this stinger-resistant seawater rockpool! (Please be sure to check lifeguard hours and only swim when patrolled, rockpool is closed on Wednesdays) Then finish your swim off with a bottle of bubbles, which you can enjoy sitting on the seawall that surrounds the rock pool as you watch the changing colours of sunset. How romantic!
