"What a charming little beach town! The locals here are incredibly friendly and the environment is so lush that you can’t help but feel at peace. Eclectic shops and cafes line Jonson Street which will take you right to the Main Beach where you can surf, kayak, whale watch, or just hang out and get some sun! I can’t say enough about the delicious meals I had in Byron Bay which almost exclusively featured locally sourced ingredients!"
