Laings Point Reserve, Sydney Harbour National Park, NSW
Romantic view of city to Manly
So if you were to pick the best romantic picnic spot in Sydney for Valentine's Day where would you recommend?
One of my top picks would have to be Laings Point Reserve which is past Watsons Bay Hotel and has a view stretching from the city skyline to Manly wharf — you can even watch the Sydney ferries going back and forth between the two points. If you're feeling adventurous then bring along your swimmers because there's an amazing natural rock pool with one of the best views you'll find in Sydney — hopefully the sharks won't be able to jump into it though. Camp Cove is close as well which you can see from Laings Point Reserve. If your stuck for food then grab some nice salads from Charcoal Chicken in Rose Bay on the way or some fish and chips from Doyles on the Beach near Watsons Bay Hotel.
