Australia isn’t just famous for kangaroos and Vegemite. You’ll never regret choosing the land down under for a romantic getaway destination. Australia doesn’t just offer unique, natural scenery, it also boasts different types of entertainment that you can’t find anywhere else.
Australia is perfect for any situation. In summer, the weather is not too hot while winter is fairly mild. Covering a wide area, it’s possible to explore the whole continent during your holiday—but only do it if you have enough time and, of course, guts.
Australia is world-famous for its beaches, and finding a quiet spot to sneak away with the one you love will be like being in heaven. Here are some great beaches to visit during your romantic holiday in Australia:
1. Kims Beach Hideaway, Central Coast, New South Wales
The first beach you might visit on your romantic getaway is Kims Beach Hideaway in Central Coast, New South Wales. Famous bands like the Rolling Stone have chosen to spend their holiday here in order not to be exposed by paparazzi. Mick Jagger even said that this beach was a trusted secret in the world.
Established in 1886, this hidden beach isn’t surrounded by palm trees, but you’ll get perfect service from the staff and waiters.
What else does Kims Beach offer? For one, you won’t have a problem finding entertainment—bars, lounges, and clubs are spread throughout Kims Beach.
