Recently, I had the pleasure of celebrating the upcoming nuptials of a girlfriend through the age-old tradition of a Hen's Party: twelve girls and one glorious weekend in beautiful Byron Bay.
As another summer has quietly slipped by, a weekend at the beach with some of my nearest and dearest girlfriends was a timely reminder to Always Remain Playful.
Sometimes I find it so easy to get caught up in the daily stress of work and life; a weekend full of good food, great wine, silly dancing, lazing on beaches and many, many laughs can be the best way to unwind.
Planning a girls trip to Byron Bay? Here are a few recommendations:
Check out Treehouse on Belongil Beach. With a massive verandah, cosy couches and big tables, this is the perfect venue for a big group of friends to enjoy a casual dinner.
To take advantage of the stunning location of our house at beautiful Watego's Beach, (and to be able to enjoy a leisurely lunch interspersed with games and flower crown assembling) the bridesmaids organised a catered lunch at the house. This meant there was more time for everyone to relax and enjoy the occasion - and the food was delicious! 100 Mile Table provided a gourmet feast of moroccan style chicken, slow cooked lamb, duck fat potatoes and a green salad. For dessert, we had platters of chocolate brownies, turkish delight and raspberry-dusted meringues to nibble on mid-flower crown prep!
No girls trip to Byron Bay is complete without some dancing on tables at Cheeky Monkey's! With great tunes and a relaxed dresscode, be prepared to let your hair down as you dance the night away.
Sunday brunch sessions are essential (pre or post beach time!) One of our favourite go-to brunch places in Byron Bay is Dip Cafe. With great coffee and an array of mouth-watering sweet and savoury options on the breakfast menu, there's something for everyone at this great little spot.
Did you pack your #activewear? The popular lighthouse walk is a fabulous walking trail with breathtaking views.
