Revive That Romance: A Sweet Weekend Escape with that Special Someone in Olivia Beach


There are times when you just need to get away from everything and spend some time reconnecting with your special someone. During those times, you just want to find someone to look after the kids, sit the pets, and check on your house. Once you’ve gotten those things checked off your “to-do” list, you’re ready to whisk your significant other away for a weekend of romance and intimacy.
Now the question is, where do you go? Unless you’ve got a lot of disposable income, you probably can’t just hop on a plane and jet off to some exotic locale. Luckily for you, there’s an amazing and picturesque location that’s only a quick road trip away: Olivia Beach.

Olivia Beach, Oregon

Olivia Beach is a gorgeous and quiet beachside community located along the Oregon coastline, and even the journey going there can be the start of your romantic getaway with your partner. Imagine feeling the salty, fresh ocean breeze against your face as you drive along the I-5 highway with your windows down. Along the way, you will pass by rocky coasts, beautiful sandy beaches, and glittering waters. Your final destination would be Olivia Beach!
From the moment you arrive at Olivia Beach, you will feel like you have stepped into a time machine! The gorgeous homes featuring classic Nantucket-style architecture, the quaint playgrounds and green spaces, and the quiet and inviting beaches will make you think that you’ve arrived in bygone eras.

Things to Do Outside

One of the best things about Olivia Beach is that you’ll be hypnotized by the natural beauty and tranquility of the area, and you’ll spend most of your time exploring everything that the area offers. Aside from the amazing beaches where you can swim, surf, and stroll along the sandy shores, there is a multitude of other outdoor activities that you can enjoy. Some of the most popular beaches in the area include D River Beach and Rockaway Beach.
Lincoln City, known as the kite capital of the world, is a great place to spend your romantic weekend. It has an amazing mix of wide spaces and a generally windy climate, making it perfect for a kite flying afternoon or two with your partner. In fact, kite flying is so popular here that there are two festivals dedicated to it! One is held in June and the other is held in October. Lincoln City is so inviting and enjoyable, you might even consider extending your stay there.

Drink and Feast the Night Away

 If you and your partner love trying new local restaurants and bars, then you’re in luck at Olivia Beach. There are so many wineries, breweries, and eateries around that you might even have trouble choosing where to go!
For a long-time crowd favorite, you can visit McMenamins. This restaurant/brewery has branches all over the northwest, with one of the branches found in Lincoln. They have an extensive menu of delicious appetizers and entrees meant for sharing, as well as a selection of beers brewed in-house.
For a more laid-back and fun atmosphere, plan a night to visit The Black Squid Beer House. This bar has Trivia Tuesdays if you want to flex your trivia muscles and impress your partner, and they serve a wide and eclectic mix of spirits and liquors, such as in-house beers, cider, wine, and even mead and Kombucha! However, they don’t serve food, so you may want to get your snacks somewhere else.

Check Out the Local Events

No matter what time of year you plan to visit Olivia Beach, you’ll probably find something exciting and fun to do. Luckily, the Oregon Coast Visitor’s Association has you covered with a comprehensive calendar of activities that you can do throughout the year.

Take a Hike

Since you’re going away with your partner to enjoy some alone time, why not do it while enjoying the beauty of nature up close? There are several natural locations around Olivia Beach that you can enjoy together, such as Drift Creek Trail or Marjal de Pego Natural Park.
If you want to kick things up a notch, you can even rent a mountain bike from popular rental company eXtrem Tracks, and go for an adrenaline-pumping bike ride together!

Where Should We Stay?

There are many lodging options that you can choose from in Olivia Beach, but if you really want to experience living like a local, check out Sweet Haven Rentals. You can choose from a wide range of rental homes that will fit your needs and budget, whether you’re looking for a home with a pool, a cozy fireplace, or one that’s located right on the beach.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
