We stayed at East Byron for a weekend in Mid-January and had a great time. The beach is so beautiful and the waves are nice to jump into. You can get there an umbrella there for a small donation so just enjoy. There are two small restaurants: the treehouse and the Belongi Bistro (which just serves breakfast and dinner). The... More

If you are looking for a beach without the crowds and a friendly mix of families, adolescents, locals and dogs then Belongil is for you. Soft sand, a beach you can walk and walk and easy access to some terrific food and drink offerings.

Lovely beach which allows you to bring the dog, wasn't too busy and the beach is over 1km long so you can find a spot with not to many people around.

My dog had a fantastic time at this beach. The access to this beach for the elderly and those with mobility problems is difficult. And there is only one, worn bench in the sun for those unable to sit on the sand.

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
