Byron Bays best kept secret. This is the beach the locals go to. Quiet, clean with beautiful sand as far as the eye can see, We walked this beach for an hour every evening, feet in the warm Pacific waters.

Hardly a soul on this huge beach which has gorgeous white sand, warm sea and crashing surf. Paradise.

It is just by the car park, close to restaurants. Clean, big and perfect place for surfers and sun lovers.

All the beaches in Byron Bay are great, easy to swim and safe. Be careful for the bluebottles and jellyfish which we only experienced on one day of our holiday!

This is one of the few beaches in Byron where you can enjoy your space. Be warned though as dogs are allowed here. There aren't many shady spots but the wide expanse without the crowds can become a favourite.
