I spend a lot of time in both Bali and Byron Bay and whenever anyone around me is off to either of these destinations they always ask me “What should I do?” and “Where should I go?”
Hence, now I can send them right here to my blog anytime they ask.
If you are after great healthy vegetarian style food then you cant go past Earth Cafe. Their menu is delicious and they make meals that traditionally are not so healthy, into healthy meals that taste amazing with wheat free, dairy free and vegetarian alternatives.
If you want to go shopping then anywhere around Seminyak Square is best, but be prepared to pay ‘almost’ Melbourne prices!
If you want to lay by a beautiful pool with a great organic healthy menu which also provides free wifi (I often spend days there by the pool working and eating raw food) then you cant go past Desa Seni in Canguu.
While you’re down that way you must also go to Betelnut Cafe for a ‘Naga Bowl’ – it’s just so yum!
If you want to exercise, do yoga, jungle treks, volcano climbs, and other adventures all while eating delicious clean food then you must go stay at a village just out of Ubud called ‘Sharing Bali‘. The fresh air and relaxation this village provides will send you home feeling like a new person.
Ahhh my favourite place on earth.
The light house run/walk is a must see. It’s only around 20-30 minutes to the top and its a great way to stay fit while you are in Byron Bay. Do it the first day and time yourself, and try to improve on time over the course of your stay.
The Crystal Castle – if you want to get all spiritual (this is what being in Byron is about!) I don’t know anyone who leaves the Crystal Castle feeling like they haven’t achieved something. It will open your spiritual eyes.
For shopping there are so many amazing stores around Johnston street. I LOVE Spell Designs. But just wonder and you will come across some of Australias best boutique stores.
At Main Beach – hire a bike for your stay or do a half day surf lesson, it’s so much fun!
