“Coffee is the headline act at this stylish pit stop, which opens at 5.30am daily to churn out specialty blends. Keep your cool on hot days with a Five Senses cold drip served over ice, or sip on pour-over filtered brews from Byron Bay’s Marvell Street Roasters. A small selection of sweet treats is available to snack on and occasionally there’s live music.”

Park
“For a one to two hour round trip walk you can park on the southern headland and walk the 15 minute cliff side boardwalk to the beach with dramatic views of the waves crashing on the rocks. On the beach you can stop at the local beach cafe for coffee and breakfast, then continue walking north on the park path, to North Curl Curl, walk to the top of the Northern headland and then down to the rockpool for a swim, continue back along the beach and have a dip in the waves, to the southern end to watch the locals do their swimming laps at the Southern rock pool. Relax and enjoy!”
