Byron Bay is the gateway to some of the most magnificent natural creations. During your stay at Atlantic, we can recommend some of the beautiful day trips to explore the hinterland and coastal areas surrounding Byron Bay. If you are a lover of nature, an explorer of life and a straight up adventurer you will loose yourself in these incredible untouched and protected habitats.
A Marine Park exploding with life, suspended walkways and bridges swaying above the treetops, a sleeping volcano reaching for the stars and a century old lighthouse now an iconic symbol are a few of the interesting facts that make these parks and reserves incredibly unique and completely fascinating.
Pristine beaches, rugged headlands, ancient rainforests, magnificent waterfalls, bubbling creeks and rocky shores make a scenic drive or nature walk a must. If you want to get to know the local inhabitants and feel the earth beneath you, camp under a canopy of stars and listen to the sounds of the wildlife. Protected and heritage listed, these reserves and parks are steeped in history, culture and spiritual folklore. There is a story to be told and listened too.

Doors are open to the Surf Bazaar & Samudra Pop Up Shop, swing by and take a look.
For the next 5 days only…….. Atlantic Byron Bay has the most amazing Pop Up Shop with Surf Bazaar & Samudra.
Surf Bazaar was conceived of in Montauk, NY and launched in May of 2010 with their first bazaar and collection at The Surf Lodge. They carry a well-edited collection of clothing and accessories that you want to have at the beach, yet is relevant and wearable in every day lives. The focus is on beachwear that is progressive in cut, proportion and design. They also create a collection of essential clothing and accessories that truly conveys our love of bright color, natural texture, and simple yet flattering shapes.
Their label is inspired by Tibetan prayer flags, in which each flag is a color that represents an element. The Surf Bazaar flags represent elements that inspire them : blue is for water, fluorescent orange is Sunset; fluorescent pink is Flora; grey is Earth…they hang the flags in their clothing, as well as in the bazaar, as a reminder to add soul into everything they do.
We continue to push our own creativity, and to connect with those inspired people who contribute to an aesthetic value that reflects the beauty we see in Montauk, and beaches everywhere.
We are so excited to have them arrive in Byron Bay …….seriously amazing Acacia Swimwear is being unpacked as we speak!!! Beautiful bags and pouches from Samudra and so much more.
Make sure you drop by if you are in town….Atlantic Byron Bay… 13 Marvel St…look for the Surf Bazaar Flags !
Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places on earth this is Byron Bay’s most exclusive beachfront suburb. Surrounded by holiday dream homes this is where the rich and famous come to play. Even though extremely popular there is something gentle about Wategos. Maybe it’s the laidback long boarders who flock to this break or the calming lush tropical rainforest that skirt the headlands scenic walk. Whatever it is that gives Watego’s it’s magic, don’t miss being a part of it
If privacy is what your after take the lighthouse walk to Little Wategos. Accessible only by foot this quiet and secluded beach sits at the foot of the lighthouse. North facing it’s protected making it the idyllic place to spend the day sunbathing and swimming. For an unforgettable experience head there on sunset and watch the moon rise over the most easterly point of Australia as whales bask in its light.
