What a beach!

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.

A lovely protected sandy little beach with the best pizza in Byron only a few metres away. A grassy knoll for chilling, a seat for the fully clothed, or sand and waves for the more adventurous.

Nice white beach for hanging out with your family. Not too many people and the surf is good for body surfing, swimming, or beginner surfing. Lots of dogs which was great because we missed ours!

The north side of the breakwall has the best surf and the south side nearer to the hotels and restaurants is more popular with swimmers. Take a long walk, pick up an icecream or coconut for sale ($5). Be careful of rips in the ocean because of the strength of the currents. Ask lifesavers for help on where's best to... More
