CABARITA BEACH HOLIDAY FOR TWO
Cabarita Beach has long been a popular seaside spot but the small town, just 500m end-to-end, is always evolving with exceptional food, nature, art and wellness experiences all on offer. Take this 3-day Cabarita Beach Holiday for two to soothe your mind, body and soul, with time in nature, experiences to nurture and flavours to nourish.
Ease into some romantic days away and check in to your luxe lodgings at Halcyon House, beachfront at Cabarita. This lush retro refit of a 1960s surf motel is made for couples and is an idyllic central base to explore Cabarita over the coming days.
First up, feel nurtured with a soothing treatment at Halcyon Spa, a divine wellness sanctuary just steps from your room. Choose the spa journey that’s right for you from a healing massage to purifying body boost, or feel relaxed, comforted and connected with a Spa Ritual for Two treatment in the decadent couple’s suite.
After some time in the dome-shaped steam room, refresh in your room and breathe in the blue sea view from your private balcony or exhale poolside with a cocktail, a good book or just time spent together.
Take a stroll into town for a casual lunch at the Cabarita Beach Hotel, with front-row ocean seats and fresh sea breezes.
Next up, nurture your creative soul with a visit to Mist Gallery, a sweet art space right on the main street that showcases the stunning works of local artists, from sculptors and painters to ceramicists and glasswork with regularly changing exhibitions and art classes run by Tweed artists.
Head back to Halcyon House to round out the easy ways of today, sipping a sunset cocktail with a side of sea view, followed by the distinctive flavours of Chef Jason Barratt at Halcyon’s much-awarded and Chef Hatted restaurant, Paper Daisy.
Renewed by yesterday’s day of rest, today is time to feel invigorated in nature. Start with an early morning rise and get your feet in the sand to walk along Cabarita Beach, voted Australia’s Best Beach for 2020.
Reaching the southern end of the beach, take the boardwalk steps up, up, up to reach Norries Headland lookout, rewarding with stunning 360 views out to sea and around to the nearby green Tweed Valley and mountain ranges that were once the rim of an ancient volcano.
Looping back through Cabarita village, replenish with breakfast at Nectar Juice House, where you’ll find a friendly vibe, Insta-worthy interiors and healthy to decadent brekky choices, from cold-pressed juices to locally-made organic sourdough crumpets with lemon curd.
Time to hit the surf! Cabarita Beach is an exposed point break, with reliable surf waves that are sought-after by avid surfers. Grab your boards and paddle out to catch wave after wave.
Grab some take-away lunch in the village and head to nearby Cudgen Nature Reserve for a tranquil lakeside bite. If you’ve brought (or hired) kayaks, the shallow lake is a calm setting to paddle out and immerse in nature.
After all this adventure, retreat back to Halcyon House and rest up before another evening of nourishing goodness in the village.
Start the night right with a pre-dinner sip at popular local hang, The Burrow, a welcoming bar with smiling staff and a cocktail list to keep you quenched.
Step across the main street for another Chef Hatted dining experience at No 35 Kitchen and Bar. The restaurant opened in 2021 and has taken Cabarita, and the national food scene, by storm. With a menu described as Italian-ish, expect to keep coming back for the already iconic local snapper fish finger sandwich, amongst many other delectable Italian inspired dishes.
Start the last day of your Cabarita Beach holiday slow, with a leisurely breakfast at Paper Daisy, before ticking off some more quintessential village experiences.
Stroll up to Kartel Espresso for some friendly local vibes and barista made coffee then browse local art, fashions, jewellery, plants and more at The Corner Collective, right next door.
Take the beach style of Cabarita with you and snap up some stunning homewares at the luxe Tulum Home, from clothes and tableware to furniture and kitchen pieces.
No Cabarita Beach holiday is complete without gelato! Before heading home stop in at Get the Scoop Gelato to choose your favourite flavours, from one scoop to two, or even three if you can’t decide!
Set off refreshed, invigorated and satiated from your three-day Cabarita Beach holiday.
