Summer is almost here – but for Northern NSW it seems as it has already arrived!  We have said goodbye to our spectacular whale season (April – November each year) and in the lead up to Christmas we are looking forward to long, lazy summer days and warm summer nights.  Of course, that cool breeze that comes through in the evening is always welcome!

The most fantastic article about Cabarita Beach appeared in the Qantas Magazine (October 2015) which highlighted not only our beautiful region but the newly opened Halcyon House.  We’ve blogged it so you can read it in your own time.

There are lots of activities happening during the summer break – from water sports with the Watersports Guru, the opening of the new pop up restaurant, Butchers BBQ at Fins Restaurant (or try out their gin bar),  drop in for breakfast any day until 11.30am at Osteria Casuarina, try the new menu at Sea Salt, a pamper session at Beauty at Salt, Christmas Lunch at Salt Bar with a seafood buffet lunch,  The Celebrity Chef Weekend at Peppers at Salt, featuring Colin Fassnidge (15/16 January), try out the wonderful Thai flavours at our favourite Thai Restaurant, Mahsuri Thai, or just enjoy the fact that you can get some fresh fish and chips or gelatos from the takeaway outlets at Salt Village to eat on the beach – remember that it is patrolled 365 days a year .

Phew!  So much to do, so little time!  Of course if you are lucky enough to be one of our guests at La Maison Pacifique, you could try our new cooking classes option (see below for more details) or even have a fully catered dinner party for up to 10.  Cool, eh!

But I digress.  We have lots of fabulous news and tips for you this month, so read on for all the latest from us at La Maison Pacifique.

Increasingly, we at La Maison Pacifique are being asked why we are not updating our booking calendar on the various sites we are listed.  This is a real dilemma for us as whilst we are not keen to inconvenience any prospective guests (nor frustrate them with a no response), we still need to answer to the question “to update our calendar or not”.  So, we’d like to explain.
