The Pass is every surfers dream. This iconic beach is known by surfers around the world due to its perfectly groomed sand bottom point beak that breaks for almost a kilometre on a good day. The Pass is one of the closest beach to town and walking distance if your staying in the Byron hub. Make sure you walk to the top of the point to the lookout where you can stand over the surfers as they pass below you. One of our favourite places to watch the sunset too…
Located just 2km from the town centre and the next beach over from The Pass, Wategos is really once of the most stunning and picture perfect beaches in Australia. A great place to have a picnic or day at the beach with plenty of facilities to keep you happy such as public barbecues, toilets and coffee van (most of the year round). Wategos is full of dolphins, turtles, whales and plenty of good vibes. With perfect soft rolling waves, this beach is ideal for beginners looking to take up some surfing. At the most eastern end of the beach you’ll find a popular track and stairs that will guide you to the top of the Cape Byron Lighthouse and the most Easterly point of mainland Australia.
Tallow Beach is around 3.2km from the town centre but only a short bike ride. Tallows is a magnificent open beach that is perfect for a long walk down to suffolk park or even Broken head at the southern end. Tallows is a great beach to just chuck your towel down, get away from the crowds and enjoy being on holiday mode. Located in national park you’ll find an array of birdlife and animals like wallabies in the early hours of the morning and late afternoon. Another great place to spot whales as they migrate past the cape of Byron Bay. Tallows is also known as a really great surf beach however more suited to the more experienced surfers.
