The beaches on the Sunshine Coast are some of the best of the world.

If you and your loved one are longing for a short break from the daily grind, Australia's sunshine coast provides the escape you've been dreaming of. The Sunshine Coast supplies a perfect blend of environment and adventure, allowing couples to enjoy the untouched nature that abounds in this area.

With beautiful beaches, forests and countryside that is untainted by overdevelopment, you and your partner can revel in the pristine charm of the Sunshine Coast while taking part in any number of activities.

The ocean is characterised by an abundance of wildlife, so you may be able to spot sea turtles, reef fish, dolphins and whales while snorkelling, diving or kayaking. An incredible variety of colourful birds call the verdant rainforests of the coast home, and you may also encounter koalas, possums, goannas and kangaroos while exploring the hiking trails. Couples looking for adventure should consider kayaking through Noosa's Everglades or cruising down Pumicestone Passage - both will supply  you and your honey with an unforgettable break from city life. 

If you're not too keen on kayaking, the beaches of the Sunshine Coast are some of the best in the world. With white sand that stretches for miles and miles, a choice of surf or calm bays and sparkling aquamarine waters, you'll most certainly find your ideal beach here. The coastal beaches are rarely overcrowded, so you and your honey will surely find a spot to lay under the sun with a good book.

When evening comes, make sure to enjoy one of the coast's stunning sunsets. Then wander over to one of Noosa's elegant restaurants and indulge in a gourmet meal. There's plenty of fresh produce and fabulous wines to pair with your meal from the Hinterland region.

Just relax...

For couples looking to relax and reconnect, and ideally located in the midst of seven acres of ancient rainforest, Amore on Buderim offers everything you'll need to fully unwind. Venture out to nearby Mooloolaba and soak up the sun in the stunning beaches, charming cafes, clubs and restaurants. End your day with an in-cabin massage and then soak in a bubble bath while you sip a glass of wine and allow yourself to be mesmerised by the cozy log fire.

Bike ride, paddle and play

Perched on Pristine Lake Weyba, Eumarella Shores offers couples the chance to spend their days canoeing on the lake, biking on country roads or just enjoying the view. Eumarella also provides gourmet and breakfast hampers, so you can indulge in a private, candlelit dinner while you watch the moon rise. 

Whether you spend your romantic getaway nestled in one of their delightful cottages, contemporary lake houses or opt for the ultimate luxury of the lake pavilion, you're sure to have an unforgettable time.

Spas, Swimming and Eco Tours

Lake Weyba Cottages are surrounded by 20 acres of exquisite gardens and swimming lagoons, and their cottages are luxuriously outfitted with a double spa. Explore the area and do a bit of birdwatching with the natural history walking tour, then come back to a blazing wood fire and incredible views. If you and your loved one are foodies, you'll adore the opportunity to dine-in while being served by your own private chef.

Bask in the sunshine

Removed from bustling downtown Noosa, the extravagant Picture Point Terraces are enclosed by verdant tropical greenery and providing hypnotising vistas of the ocean, Noosa National Park, Laguna Bay, North Shore and Noosa River - all while still allowing you and your partner to walk out to dinner at one of Noosa's divine restaurants hand-in-hand. Complete your couple's vacation with a massage service, private spa baths and bewitchingly beautiful sunsets.
