I may sound a little bias when I talk about the picturesque Northern Beaches, because we all know its so damn beautiful..BUT there are a few that take the cake for the most amazing spots on the beaches.
Collins Flat – Manly
This little beauty is tucked between the hustle and bustle of Manly and Sydney’s North Head. The absolutely gorgeous secluded beach is the perfect place to escape the crowds, enjoy a quiet swim and a perfect place for a bottle of wine to watch the sun go down.
Fairlight Beach – Fairlight
This beautiful beach offers an amazing mix of sand, water, rock pool and ocean pools.Very easily accessible and just around the corner from the super beautiful, Manly Wharf. This is the ultimate picnic spot, and the perfect place to spend on those...

Laine Swimwear’s Favourite North Coast Weekend Getaway
We all need weekend getaways occasionally to clear the mind and sooth the soul and Laines favourite place to do this is a hidden gem on the mid north coast of New South Wales.

We spend so much of our holidaying time on the beautiful Island of Bali. Our go to location for the best food, coffee, shopping and r&r is Seminyak.
Seminyak is central to all the best spots and locations in Bali and is a stone throw away from some of the BEST eating and drinking spots in Bali. Some of Laines favourite food and drinking spots are:
Revolver: We need a morning pick me up and if you do too Revolver is a must! We think it’s the BEST coffee in town
Sea Circus: Smashed avo on toast, good coffee and out of this world juices and smoothies is where you’ll find me most mornings! Sea Circus can deliver amazing breakfast, but don’t be fooled! Their lunch and dinner are just as amazing!
Sister Fields:The best Acai bowls in Bali, sisterfields also offers an incredible variet...
