Valentine’s Day : 6 experiences on the Mornington Peninsula to impress

Beach Heart

It’s coming and there’s no escaping it. Valentine’s Day – equally revered and feared. My memories of Valentine’s Day range from a sweet boy in primary school baking me heart shaped biscuits – to my husband and I sharing a last supper of sorts before our first baby arrived seven years ago – to toasting myself with a bottle of bubble because, well, we’ve all been single on Valentine’s Day, right? If you’re one who dreads this day, as I did in my early twenties, then you might want to look away now. Or just take your best buddy because these Valentine’s treats are pretty bloody special not to share with someone!

Regardless of your personality or how you like to impress you loved one, the Mornington Peninsula has something for everyone. Here’s our pick of six of the best.
