Female passenger in Elements Air over byron headland

You’ve checked-in to Elements of Byron and have 5 whole days to squeeze every last drop of the quintessential Byron Bay experience into your holiday. What to do?


Day One – Explore

 

07.30 – 08:30
SUNRISE BEACHFRONT YOGA

The best imaginable start to your holiday. Wake-up to greet the world with First Light Club sunrise yoga overlooking the beach with Elements’ very own in-house yoga instructor. It’s free and all you have to do is turn up five minutes before class start time. You might even be lucky enough to spot a whale breaching as you salute the sun! Mats are provided.

08:30 – 09:30
SUMPTUOUS BREAKFAST

Muscles stretched – it’s now time for a fresh, healthy breakfast at our poolside restaurant. Enjoy a leisurely buffet or order from our a la carte menu. Breakfast hours are 7am-10.30am. Before heading off for your ‘Byron explore’ don’t forget to pack your swimmers, hat and towel and grab a map from our Concierge.

You could even take a quick dip in the ocean before you leave – mornings at Byron’s beautiful beaches are one of the best times for a swim!

09:30 – 12:00
BEACH & HEADLAND WALK

Ready for an unforgettable morning coastal walk to the Cape Byron Lighthouse, one of Australia’s most spectacular oceanside trails?

The Lighthouse is about an hour’s stroll from the resort along the beachfront or a 15-minute drive.

Wander along the sands from the resort to Clarkes Beach or, if you’re driven, leave your car at the (metered) Clarkes Beach carpark in front of Beach, Byron Bay.

Cape Byron Lighthouse

From here, start your trek along the beach to the southern headland, known as The Pass. You might even stop for a dip in its turquoise waters before exploring Palm Valley, where the rainforest fringes the ocean. As you meander through the trees you’ll might spot wallabies and bush turkeys, and even the odd (harmless) python.

Aerial byron bay beach

The path takes you around the headland to Wategos Beach and then onto the Lighthouse. Be prepared for some extraordinary sights as you weave through coastal forest to the top. You can even divert along a short track to Little Wategos, a smaller headland and beach, if you feel like a swim.

Once at the Cape, breathe in the panoramic ocean vistas while you watch dolphins play or even sight some migrating humpback whales (between May and November).

If you feel like a second coffee – or the kids want an ice-cream – the Café Byron Lighthouse Café has one of the best 360 views in the world to accompany your latte! Once refreshed, it’s now time to head back down the path for a spot of lunch then shopping.

By now you’ve built-up an appetite! Pop into Beach, Byron Bay (Byron’s only hatted restaurant) for a relaxed gourmet lunch. Or if you feel like something more relaxed, grab some delicious takeaway from their kiosk and munch away on the beach or under the trees!
