The Atlantic Byron Bay hotel
Have you ever dreamed about sleeping into an Airstream ? The Atlantic is a boutique lifestyle hotel smack in the heart of Byron Bay looking over a rainforest reserve. A blend of tropical cool and modern luxury. Choose from ‘The Simple’ with its laid back and surf shack feel, ‘The Classic’ for cool and comfort or you can spoil yourself and book ‘The Tropical’ with an outlook over the palms.
There’s a space for everyone at The Atlantic. You can pull up a bean bag under a palm tree or soak up the sun on one of the decks. Cook up a feast in the open kitchen and dine with strangers or enjoy the privacy of your own room. Cool off in the lap pool after a day of sun and surf or roll out your yoga mat for an afternoon stretch.
Cosy Corner Beach
Byron Bay’s very own secret beach is Cosy Corner, Set at the very northern end of Tallow Beach, below the Cape Bryon headland is this protected little pocket. Send the board riders a little further down the beach for some of the best waves in Byron, while everyone else can relax sheltered from the northerlies winds.
Byron beach Café
The setting alone is reason enough to grab your morning coffee at Byron Beach Café, but it also serves up Byron Bay Coffee Company organic ‘Beach Blend’ coffee. Be sure to either get there early, it opens at 7:30 am or make a reservation as you will want to enjoy your coffee and meal overlooking the beach.
Ahoy Trader is the beautifully eclectic creation from Byron Bay artist Jai Vasicek. Jai creates stunning wall tiles, crosses, pillows and throws in an array of neons, prints and patterns.Shells, feathers, bright colours and bold motifs adorn his stunning art. The perfect addition to any trendy home to brighten up your favourite space.
Spell and the Gipsy collective boutique
Forget the tie-dyed hemp and fringed bags usually relegated to the back of your closet as soon as you get back from holiday, hippie chic at Spell and the Gypsy’s flagship store will have you dressed head to toe-ring in leather, turquoise and leopard print. The look is Erin Wasson rather than Janis Joplin.
