Beach all morning then lunch at Belongil Beach Cafe. Yummy food accommodate gluten dairy free. Give them some notice and they will do fresh pasta, special sources. Amazing. It really is such a wonderful holiday experience. Very family friendly. Staff fantastic. Lunch or dinner

Discovered this on a recent visit. This beach stretches from south of Belongil creek, across the creek to pretty much as far north as you can walk - which is a looong way. Nice and quiet in the morning for a dawn walk - a mix of clothed and unclothed folks and sometimes families on this clothing optional beach. Everyone... More

I had a great half day chilling and reading here! Main Beach was so busy but Belongil Beach was just perfect. It was quite a windy day but that didn't detract from how gorgeous this beach is.

Everybody heads for the beach for the sunsets. And Belongil Beach is a great place to do so. Locals, tourists....musicians. They're all here (some drinking, some smoking weed ... ). We just sat there for about an hour or two. Watching the absolutely amazing sunset on that winter night....crazy lights and colours. And it was also fun watching all the... More

Just west of the Main Beach parking lot, Belongil is a dog-friendly beach (please remember to pick up after your pooch - most people do, so the beach remains clean and inviting). Life Guards only during peak times, so take the young kids to Main Beach. There can be rips, but also good surf at "the wreck" just off shore.

Lots of space and it's clothing optional. Good to get away from the crowds. You may see whales from this beach.

Great beach, very pretty and clean. Multiple red and yellow flag sites so not a huge walk to find somewhere safe for a swim. Loved it! Morning beach walks were the highlight of our trip!

Belongil beach is the quieter beach at Byron and lovely at sunrise when the sand is firm and not littered yet with sun bakers - although there are always a lot of sleepers in bags or last night clothes!

We eat here all the time. Awesome food, great staff. Walk off the beach & hangout. Great position - take away & sit in the beach. + good value.
