Think Byron Bay, and you envisage a place bursting with good vibes, a health-conscious way of life and a bohemian view of the world. Devotees will tell you you’re in for a treat: beautiful surf beaches, relaxed dining with an emphasis on the organic, and a slower way of life – the perfect antidote for the burnt-out soul. Your Byron Bay holiday can be as chilled or as active as you like.
