Top Beaches in Byron Bay

Top Beaches in Byron Bay

With miles of white sand stretching from Cape Byron up into Queensland and the Gold Coast, Byron Bay spoils sun-seekers for choice. Whether you want to learn to surf, enjoy water sports, or party at a beach bar, here are our picks of the best Byron Bay beaches.  

Main Beach

Byron’s most frequented beach is the aptly named Main Beach, located a short stroll from the shops and restaurants of the town. With a view of the Cape Byron headland and stunning sunsets, it's one of the region’s most beautiful beaches and a popular choice for families.

Clarkes Beach

Just down the strip from Main Beach, Clarkes Beach is a perfect destination for outdoor activities, with ample opportunities to enjoy water sports, take a surf class, or play a game of beach volleyball. The rocky coastline also harbors some great snorkeling spots. 

     

The Pass

East of Main Beach, The Pass is renowned for its world-class surf and and is a great place to spot dolphins and whales in winter. It’s also the starting point for snorkeling and scuba diving expeditions to Julian Rocks and hikes along the Cape Byron Walking Track.

Wategos Beach

On the northern coast of Cape Byron, the beaches of Wategos and Little Wategos offer sheltered waters ideal for swimming in a more secluded location, one set a good distance away from the crowds of the town beaches. From here, it’s an easy to visit the Cape Byron Lighthouse or the Most Easterly Point of the Australian Mainland.
