Whether you're wanting to catch the perfect wave, sunbake, swim or meditate, our beautiful beaches provide the perfect environment to relax. Uncrowded and with pristine sand and sea, you will be enticed by their beauty and seclusion!
Immediately in front of Byron Bay town, lifesaver-patrolled Main Beach is popular from sunrise to sunset with yoga enthusiasts, sunbakers, surfers, buskers and fire dancers.
Belongil Beach and the famous 'Wreck' for great surfing
An eastern and often unexpectedly serene extension of busy Main Beach. The sunsets from Clarkes Beach are spectacular and it is a very popular stretch for evening walks! You will love the beachfront cafe/restaurant 'Beach, Byron Bay' with its stunning views and a sought-after venue for weddings.
Byron's most famous surf break is at the Pass, where Clarkes Beach meets the Eastern Headland. A popular place to learn to surf and launch spot for world class diving at Julian Rocks
East of Main Beach, Wategos fringes Byron's most affluent enclave. Overlooked by the cape's iconic lighthouse, and enjoying a stunning view of Julian Rocks, Wategos Beach is one of Australia's most picturesque beaches. Secluded by a beautiful forest bay, the water at Wategos is protected and calm, offering long, leisurely waves for surfers and shallow areas for families. Dolphin sightings are common. Linked to the lighthouse and back to town (via The Pass and Clarkes Beach) by a scenic walking path, Wategos is one of Byron Bay's biggest drawcards
Broken Head Beach and Caravan Park
Encompassed by littoral rainforest, Broken Head Nature Reserve extends over a headland from which the coastal scenery is stunning. A well-signposted easy to medium walking track takes you from the beachfront holiday park up through the rainforest, and then trails around the cliff top before delivering you at the magical Three Sisters Lookout. The panoramic coastal vista reveals pristine beaches, rocky coves, and verdant rainforest.
This popular gay-friendly beach is just off Seven Mile Beach Rd past the Broken Head Holiday Park. Kings Beach is without doubt one of the most beautiful nudist beaches anywhere. It is the official gay beach Byron Bay.
