Cabarita | NSW, Australia
Popular with surfers during winters and city-weary travellers during summers, Cabarita offers a gentler, slower way of life. A holiday in Caba - as it's known locally - is all about unwinding, with the focus is on simple pleasures such as beach combing, bird watching, whale spotting and long, leisurely picnics in the sun.
Despite it's relaxed, surf-focused lifestyle, stylish boutique luxury accommodation options sit comfortably amongst the bars, shops and cafés. The jewel of these is Halcyon House, a beautifully restored 1960s beachside motel, now a chic boutique accommodation option.
Beyond the beach, the township offers scented day spas, beach view bars, bright surf shops, tiny cafés offering bold flavours and stunning coastal viewpoints.
Cabarita is a popular escape for those seeking an unhurried pace of life and the raw beauty of quintessential Australian beaches and bush, making it an idyllic destination for a beachside getaway.
