We recently went to Byron Bay for a weekend away to rest and recharge our batteries, it is the perfect place for R&R as there are some amazing beaches, great food and Byron has a very relaxed vibe. Here are some of our suggestions for places to visit and things to do.
We loved this place, during the day it's all about healthy brekkies and amazing coffee, by night, it is a whisky and ribs kinda joint! Brilliant food and a very cool hipster vibe.
We visit the three blue ducks in Bronte often as we live around the corner, so the Farm is always a must if we are in Byron Bay. The Farm is just outside Byron and you can take a walk around or get a tour as its an actual farm..... there is also a flower/gift shop, food store and restaurant where you can get breakfast, lunch or dinner.
I have to go to Bayleaf for breakfast every time I am in Byron, it is a great cafe in the heart of Byron Bay, amazing food, service and coffee what more can you ask for? Oh yes and the brownies are to die for! Try the salad/light bite takeaway joint they opened next door as well.
Where do I start with Topshop..... this is our current favourite, they serve everything from bacon and egg rolls to chia brekkie bowls, great juices, tasty coffee and mouth-watering pastries..... You can sit on the lawn outside and soak up the happy hipster vibes. :-)
Things to do:
Walking up to the light house is a favourite for most people who visit Byron, at the top there are beautiful views from all sides. A walk or run up to the top is a great way to start the day as you also work up a good sweat and your reward is the awesome view!
This is a water babies paradise... swimming, surfing and SUP are U9 go to water activities. You can choose from Clarkes, Tallows, Watego’s and many more beaches in Byron Bay.
Anata yoga is a great little find, we loved the vinyassa flow there.
We were lucky enough to have bikes come with our accommodation, so ditch the car and hire a bike to get about on. The traffic is bad some weekends in Byron and everything is so close by, so jump on two wheels and cruise around and sight see this way instead.
Spell & the Gypsy Collective Boutique sells beautiful clothing, jewellery, accessories and their new store is so amazing I contemplated moving in! Auguste is a must visit for me when I am in Byron, great dresses, cool prints and very reasonable prices. This time I purchased an animal print wrap dress to add to the animal print collection I already have in my wardrobe!
