Wategos Beach is edged by pandanus palms and there is a pathway along the coastal cliff that leads back to The Pass, very pretty. Only downside is that there are parking meters now.

Somewhat out of the way, and quieter than the beach up the road. A bit more rough and ready as well.

Wategos is a quiet small cove, with a crescent sandy beach, tucked around the headland from Byrons main Clarks beach. It's worth the scenic walk along the clifftop to visit this pretty little bay. And you can reward yourself with a drink at Rae's bar.

Walking along the sands of Wategos Beach makes one forget time :-) Secluded, pristine and safe. One of my favourite places in Byron Bay, worthwhile the trip!

A quieter beach away from the busy pass area. Waves can be good but bot fast f you time the tide right (usually around high tide). Some exposed rocks make it interesting and possibly less crowded as a result.

Beautiful rocky beach at the cape of Byron Bay. Only a short walk from the Byron Lighthouse, worth the walk down and up. Beautiful waves rushing against the rocky beach.

Thank Lyonng
