Travel Notes | Byron Bay

Byron Bay is one of the most beautiful places to live in the world and we love living here. To celebrate the arrival of Summer, we decided to have a holiday at home, and share a few of our favourite things to see and do in this beautiful pocket of the world.

Start your day at Bay Leaf Café with their signature Coconut Cold Brew. Located centrally in town on Marvell St, Bayleaf is a bustling hangout with outdoor seats and a hip vibe, dishing up choice breaky and lunch options. If you prefer coffee on the fly, Sparrow Coffee serves hand crafted, fresh roasted speciality Allpress coffee in Byron Bay and Bangalow. Stop by the Byron perch and say hi to Barista Steve. Pick up some delicious bakery treats with your brew, and get the weekend started with great taste and good conversation. If you enjoy a light breakfast in the sun with Byron Bay views, visit Top Shop, a popular, laid-back hangout serving breakie and single-origin coffee at the top of the hill on Carlyle St.

Byron Bay Surfing. Three words that go together like peanut butter and jelly! Byron may not be pumping yearly but its right-hand point breaks and winter swell keep it on top. The Wreck just north of Main Beach is a favourite amongst locals. It isn’t a beach as a such, but it’s a popular and well-known surf break. Main Beach is handily located right in front of town. It’s also the most popular beach so it can get busy with surfers, swimmers and kayakers. Surf lifesavers patrol the beach during summer and it’s a great place for larger groups, friends and families. For something a little quieter head to Little Wategos, Whites Beach or Tallows. Little Wategos is perfect for a relaxed day sunbathing and swimming by the Lighthouse. Whites Beach is the last beach in Broken Head’s Nature Reserve and can be completely secluded with beautiful white sand. Whatever beach and outdoor activity you choose, nourish skin post sun with Byron Bay Skincare’s Instant Relief. Formulated with calming Aloe Vera and Chamomile Flower Extract, this active healing gel immediately helps smooth and return lost moisture to sun damaged or irritated skin. Made right here in the bay, this product was made for Byron beach adventures, the avid surfer, splasher and sunbather.

We are crushing on Auguste The Label right now. A collection of beautiful vintage inspired print dresses, tops and jumpsuits, perfect for beach side living, Auguste is feminine, casual and sustainable. Byron Bay Skincare partnered with Auguste The Label for their 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway, featuring our Herbal Shampoo & Herbal Conditioner. Made from 100% natural plant extracts, our Herbal Hair Care combines the natural stimulating blend of local Tea Tree, Peppermint and Rosemary Oil to revitalise, nourish and fortify your hair.
If you like to browse and window-shop, head to Fletcher Street and check out Thrills, Afends, Arnhem and Miss Brown Vintage, to completely Byron vibe your wardrobe. Stop by the Industrial Estate for some hidden gems including St Agni and Yoli & Otis. Get your hair done at Edwards & Co and treat yourself to a sauna at Nimbus & Co. Delightful!

If you are visiting from out of town, check in to Byron Beach Abodes. Offering luxury accommodation, each property is distinct, individually designed, built and curated by the BBA Team, with a shared love of open, light-filled, beautiful, yet understated, interiors. Bring with you a Byron Bay Skincare Beach Babe Skin Set, to refresh and revitalise your skin and bring on that summer glow throughout your stay! With our Gel Cleanser, Exfoliant & Mask, Hydrating Lotion & Body Soufflé, we’ll have you looking Byron-esque in no time!

A lot of delicious and new restaurants have just opened up in Byron. Make your next visit the trip to try them all! Head to Loft for a pre-dinner cocktail, Bang Bang for an Asian infusion from the founders of Treehouse and Chin Chin. Head to Locura, previously La La Land, for a post dinner cocktail and dancing. Also serving food, this disco treat has an extended licence until 3am! What’s your flavour?
To prep your skin for the night out, try Byron Bay Skincare’s Exfoliant & Mask. The perfect 10-minute facial in a jar, our Exfoliant & Mask will leave your skin revitalised and instantly smoother. Slip our Organic Lip Balm into your bag and keep it natural, for a night on the town.
