We’ve put together a list of things to add to your itinerary for a relaxing and memorable Valentine’s Day in Melbourne and the Beaches. 

How to get Here and Where to Stay

Don’t worry about making that drive from Orlando International (MCO), you can fly right into Orlando-Melbourne International (MLB) and land minutes away from the beach and your perfect Valentine’s Day destination. 

When you get here you can choose from some of Melbourne’s luxurious bed and breakfasts such as the Port D’Hiver, which offers beautiful seaside views, romantic packages and delicious breakfasts delivered to your room. But not to worry, if a bed and breakfast doesn’t suit you, Melbourne & The Beaches has plenty of other accommodations to choose from as well. 

What to Do

Melbourne is located along 33 miles of pristine beaches where you and your sweetheart can soak up the sun or take a moonlit stroll. You can also head to Historic Downtown Melbourne and check out all the shops including Jessups, a family-owned jewelry store that’s been in Melbourne for 40 years. Browse their dazzling selection of jewelry pieces and pick out a gift that your Valentine can take home as reminder of your fairy-tale vacation in Melbourne & The Beaches.

Treat yourselves to a relaxing couples-massage this Valentine’s Day. At Spa 902 in Historic Downtown Melbourne, you both can enjoy their “Signature Escape for Two.” This 90-minute package is complete with a trip to their steam room, an hour-long massage, and champagne and chocolates.

When it’s time for your candlelit Valentine’s Day dinner, don’t settle for anything less than fine dining. There are a number of upscale restaurants in Melbourne, perfect for a romantic meal. For a tender steak, lamb chops, seafood or veal, dine at Djon's Steak & Lobster House, rated one of the finest restaurants on Florida's Space Coast.

From a relaxing couples massage to browsing the shops downtown, there’s plenty for you and your loved one to enjoy for Valentine’s Day in Melbourne. Learn more about attractions and activities in Melbourne &The Beaches here
