Whether it’s strolling hand-in-hand along idyllic Clarkes Beach, sunbathing at little Watego’s Beach or enjoying a long romantic dinner at a choice of great restaurants, Byron Bay offers a fabulous honeymoon experience.
Byron Bay offers a range of adventure activities, from coastal walks, kayaking, snorkelling and diving to skydiving and hot-air ballooning. From nearby Ballina, stroll along the forest boardwalk of the Victoria Park Nature Reserve, take a cruise along the Richmond River or paddle a kayak across the estuarine wetlands.
Make the pilgrimage to surf the legendary right-hand point break at Lennox Head – the ‘surf capital of the far north coast’. While there, stroll the seven miles of pristine beach at Seven Mile Beach and watch the hang-gliders take off from Pat Morton Lookout.
To the east, Main Beach continues into Clarkes Beach, then to The Pass, Wategos Beach and Little Wategos Beach, with each of these three beaches separated by a rocky headland.
To the north, Main Beach continues into Belongil Beach, which continues into Sunrise Beach, then Tyagarah Beach and all the way to Brunswick Heads – a 14km stretch of unspoiled beach.
To the south of Cape Byron a series of beaches – Cosy Corner, Tallows Beach, Broken Head and Seven Mile Beach – stretch down the coast to Lennox Head.
From here you can snorkel out to the Tassie II, a wreck sitting off the coast. Main Beach is patrolled by surf lifesavers in summer and, being close to town, offers lots of facilities, including showers.
The beach is wide enough for ball games, while the bay is ideal for windsurfing, body boarding and paragliding.
A surf-lifesaving team patrols the beach during summer. In winter, humpback whales may be seen frolicking with their calves on their journey back to the Antarctic.
Climb to Fisherman's Lookout for great views over Wategos. Relax with a café or enjoy a barbecue in the shade of nearby trees.
Long rolling northerly swells make the beach ideal for Malibu surfboards and longboards.
Access is from Lighthouse Road and Brooke Drive. Free electric barbecues and picnic tables overlook the beach.
For a secluded boutique-style retreat, try Rae’s on Watego’s, located on the absolute beachfront of Watego’s Beach.
