Byron Bay Beaches! ☀️

The days are getting hotter which means that it’s Summer! The days are also getting longer which means more time to spend at the beach!

We are spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches, with many different options for water sports, beach activities, exploring or just relaxing.

BELONGIL BEACH

Stretching to the north of Byron, Belongil Beach is one of the few dog-friendly beaches in the area. It has lovely views up the coast, tall sand dunes and a secluded feeling making it ideal for walking or relaxing. You can walk there from town via Main Beach and there’s a track to the Belongil cafes, including the Tree House which is a great venue for food, drinks and live music.

Belongil-Beach-scene

THE WRECK

To the left of the Main Beach car park, at the start of Belongil beach, is the Wreck. More of a surf break than a beach of its own, it’s named after the wreck of the SS Wollongbar, which sticks out of the water just beyond the waves. Mostly popular with surfers, there are no lifeguards and can get a little wilder than some of the other swimming beaches near town, but there’s often more space on the sand for beach games like cricket or soccer.

MAIN BEACH

Just a short walk from the centre town, Main Beach is Byron’s most popular beach. With Julian Rocks visible on the horizon and the Byron lighthouse overlooking it from the headland, it’s Byron’s iconic beach spot. There are grassy hills behind the beach perfect for picnicking, as well as BBQs and other facilities. Lifeguards from the local surf club patrol the water so it’s a safe swimming beach.

CLARKES

Clarkes is further down the sand from Main Beach, along the curve of the bay. Patrolled in the summer by lifeguards, it’s a safe place to swim that’s just past the heart of the town. It’s got a permanent beach volleyball net and rocky areas for snorkeling, plus there’s usually a bit more space on the sand to spread out or play beach games.

THE PASS

Further along from Clarkes at the other end of the bay is The Pass. With views of Julian rocks, Main Beach, Belongil and the hinterland beyond, it’s one of the most picturesque spots in Byron Bay. It’s also a famous surf break renowned for its long waves, which can be ridden all the way to Clarkes when the conditions are right. It’s a beautiful walk along the sand from town and has a lookout that oversees the entire bay.

right_img_pass

WATEGOS

Nestled at the foot of the headland, around the corner from The Pass, is Wategos beach. Secluded in a beautiful forest bay of its own, it’s popular with surfers and swimmers alike. With waves wrapping around the headland that offer long, leisurely rides and plenty of shallow areas that are great for kids, Wategos is the epitome of a family beach. It’s also one of Byron’s best picnic spots because it’s in its element at dusk.

wategos

LITTLE WATEGOS

As the name suggests, Little Wategos is similar to Wategos beach but on a smaller scale. It’s just around the corner from Wategos and is easy to get to along the sand in low tide. When the water’s up high, it can be reached by a longer walk over the headland. Because of this dependence on the tides, it’s often unoccupied, making it feel like your own private beach.

COSY CORNER

The other side of the headland is less protected than the bay. The beaches here get more wind and are often choppier, but they also usually have bigger waves. The first of these is Cosy Corner. It’s nestled at the bottom of the headland so it’s partially protected from the wind. With cleanly formed, decent sized waves, it’s a favourite among the local surfers.

Cosy-Corner-Byron-Bay

TALLOW BEACH

Further down from Cosy Corner on this side of the headland is Tallow Beach. With various breaks along it, there’s the potential to get a surfing spot all to yourself. It’s dog friendly and has views of the headlands further down the coast, so it’s also a nice beach for walking.

2.1292922151.tallow-beach

SUFFOLK BEACH

In the middle of the open stretch of sand to the south of Byron Bay is Suffolk Beach. A five-minute drive from town, it’s dog friendly, usually virtually empty and has stunning views of both Byron Bay and Broken Head. Long and unprotected, it’s often windier than the bay and has good surf breaks at various points along it.

Broken_Head_From_Tallow_Beach_October_2008.jpg

BROKEN HEAD

On the other end of the sand from the Cape Byron Headland is Broken Head beach. Protected by its own headland and surrounded by rainforest, it’s popular with both surfers and swimmers. A ten-minute drive from Byron, it has views of the lighthouse on its northern horizon and it’s quieter than the beaches closer to the town.

broken-head-holiday-park-300x199

KINGS BEACH

Just around the corner from Broken Head is the beautifully remote Kings beach. Although not officially a nude beach, it’s often treated as it is so beware if visiting with children. Kings is a little tricky to get to, but worth it once you’re there. It’s accessible by driving across the top of the headland along a gravel road, just off Broken Head’s main road. Once you reach the Kings car park, it’s a steep ten-minute walk down to beach.

BBI3428

WHITES BEACH

Further around the headland from Kings is the less well-known Whites beach. Reachable in the same way, its walking track is a little further along the gravel road. Nestled in the heart of the Broken Head rainforest, Whites is stunningly secluded and is one of the quietest beaches in the Byron area.

Surf Lesson! 18 October

Last week, we hit Main Beach here in Byron Bay for our surf lesson! We all left our Lexis Campus together at 10am. Everyone got fitted with a wet-suit and we set off to get our boards for the beach. The boards were very long – better for catching the waves!

As we approached the beach, it looked beautiful. The sun was out for us but the sky over the distant sea looked very dramatic indeed. Thankfully, we were spared the rain and thunder for our whole session 🙂 Here they are, all ready to go!

Our surf instructor spoke with all students for the first few minutes at the beach, going over all the important tips and things to do/not do when in the water… then it was time to hit the waves!

We started at one section of beach, before moving further down, to catch some better waves. Some of our students had been surfing a few times already but for some of the others, it was their first time to try. Everyone did amazingly well. I think they are all hooked!

5 reasons you should learn to surf today!!

Let's Go Surfing

1. You can’t explain the feeling you get when you ride a wave until you actually experience it, so get out there and give it a go and feel the ‘stoke’.

5

2. Surfing increases your strength, balance and fitness, not only that but simply spending time in the ocean positively impacts your health.

4

3. Along with becoming fit you will also become confident. Learning to surf, you will need courage to take on different conditions and grow your confidence!

2

4. Make new friends and become apart of the surfing community. Enjoy time together in the water catching some waves, having a laugh and most importantly having fun.

1

5. You never regret a surf!
