Great place to walk to from the main beach. Any time of the day but especially at sunset. Great views of Mount Warning in the distant. The beach is known for clothing optional so don't be surprised to see a few sights.

This is a dog friendly beach and perfect long stretches for dogs to have fun, swim and socialise. There is also quite good surf, but it is a very long stretch of beach so there are many strong currents and rips especially at high tide - if you not experienced in the surf, I would not recommend it.

Very popular with the locals walking their dogs in the mornings Belongil stretches north from Byron to Belongil Creek - and the further you go, the further you are from the main crowds of Byron central. Cross Belongil Creek to Tyagarah Nature Reserve - where Naturisim on the beach is apparently legal (and also appears tolerated at North Belongil just... More

Belongil beach is much more quiet than Clarke's, Main beach, or Wategos, with far less tourists etc., all day. Morning walks are filled with dogs, as it is a dog-friendly beach, and the sunrise over the lighthouse is stunning.

Beautiful beach which is very quiet. Be careful for bluebottles if the wind is blowing towards the coast

Byron Bays best kept secret. This is the beach the locals go to. Quiet, clean with beautiful sand as far as the eye can see, We walked this beach for an hour every evening, feet in the warm Pacific waters.
