We were staying at Elements of Byron which sits nestled into the beachfront. Belongil Beach is beautiful long beach which is perfect for walking. It stretches 2.5km from Belongil Creek mouth to the Seawall at Byron Bay.

Just out of the way from Byron. It only takes 5 minutes to drive into town but it's lovely retreating to Belongil Beach at the end of the day. A vast, beautiful coastline. A couple of really nice restaurants down the road too. Can highly recommend Treehouse.

A lovely beach, less busy than the main beach in Byron Bay. A few cafe's over the road for coffee, breakfast or lunch.

Visited Byron last weekend for the first time with the dogs. Belonging Beach is beautiful and full of doggy shenanigans. A great spot to tire out the puppies! Ours aren't 'beach trained' so kept them on the lead and would advise that for others without amazing recall as there are A LOT of lovely puppies running around and it may... More

Look out for the sign when coming into Byron Bay and just follow its instructions. There is not much else to comply with.

Perfect if you love being near the ocean. A beautiful beach with barely a sign of civilization. You can easily walk along the bay for hours on end.

What can one write about a beach? Except this one is really beautiful, sandy, great for swimming, walks, even surfing (not my thing, but still)...

Beach was clean, with beautiful views. Easy access, we were even able to take a pram to the beach. Dogs are allowed on a leash. Parking was close and free as well.
