5 Romantic Things to Do on the Gold Coast

Turn up the heat with a romantic escape to the Gold Coast!  Our location close to both Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach is the perfect base for couples looking for a beach break.  

Sunrise Picnic

Head to the supermarket or one of the local weekend markets and pick up some delicious  breakfast picnic items … strawberries, pastries, rolls, ham, cheeses, juice! Then wander down the beach in the early morning to catch the sunrise and start the day with an early morning dip in the ocean!

Get Cruisy

The Gold Coast is well-known for it’s beaches, canals and waterways. Why not set sail for a romantic day or evening on the water. You’ll find loads of options from lunch and dinner cruises, to whale watching tours (seasonal), tall ship adventures, fishing charters and boat hire. There’s even the option to experience a romantic  gondola ride on the Broadwater.

Dinner Theatre

Enjoy a 3 course meal and a show at Draculas Cabaret Restaurant in Broadbeach or for an Aussie flair check out the Australian Outback Spectacular. You could also check out the entertainment at The Star Gold Coast (formerly Jupiters) followed by dinner at one of their eight restaurants, before retreating to the comfort of your full self-contained accommodation at Marrakesh Apartments.

Love is in the Air

Take in the spectacular Gold Coast views from above with a bucket-list ticking Hot Air Balloon ride, scenic helicopter or seaplane flight, or for the adventurous  at heart check out the adventure and aerobatic flights!  You could also head up to the SkyPoint Observation deck to take in the stunning views of the ocean and back to the hinterland for a few cocktails while the sun goes down.

Classic Movie Date

Keep it old-school with a date night outing to the movies. You can catch the latest blockbusters at Events Cinema in Pacific Fair Shopping Centre Broadbeach (just a few short stops from us on the Gold Coast Light Rail), take in a flick at The Arts Centre Gold Coast, or cosy up in the front seat at Yatala Drive In!

Marrakesh Apartments offers a choice of 1 or 2 bedroom apartments. Our 1 bedroom apartments are perfect for couples looking for a beach break or weekend getaway.
