…or when in Mission Beach, do as the locals. When I first arrived at Mission Beach, I was given a lift to Sanctuary from my hostel. I noticed something a little odd, or at least out of the ordinary for me – my driver wasn’t wearing shoes. I’ve seen people shoeless on beaches obviously, but we were in the middle of a rainforest in a gravely car park – so seeing this man without any shoes startled me a tad.
When I arrived at Sanctuary I learned that it was just what they practiced here. And according to the booklet below, walking barefoot has many benefits.
