We visited in August and were fortunate enough to have great weather. Only a handful of locals and tourists on the beach. Truly restful and invigorating.

Stunning views, wide open beach, not too many people (particularly if you go early am). Excellent for walking, running and swimming.

Lovely clean beach away from the centre of byron. Some people were swimming but we were not sure if it was safe.

I'm sure you've read a few reviews on here that talk about how Belongil is a "nude" beach. This isn't exactly accurate. First of all, nudism is not condoned officially here, there are signs at the entrances to the beach that mention this. Second, the southern part of Belongil, closest to the town and adjacent to Main Beach, is just... More

Sitting on Belongal beach to watch the sunset. Look up and there in front of us (maybe 300m away) are 2 whales! Seriously amazing! A perfect addition to the beautiful white sandy long stretch of beach, rainbow coloured horizon, lighthouse view one way and Mt Warning the other way.

The beach is about 20 minutes walk out of town at the top end so it is less busy. You are allowed to walk your dog so there is are a lot of local people which makes it seem friendly. Get views of the Byron Bay lighthouse etc... Clean and the water lovely

When skydiving in Byron Bay you get an absolutely breathtaking view of Belongil Beach. One of my my most cherished memories of Australia. The beach itself, from the ground, is just as pleasant. The sand is soft and the sunsets are beautiful. There are food shops near by (a relatively short walk depending upon where you enter the beach).
