Shame it was $8 to go there, but there were no car spaces available. So while in the traffic jam, we took in the views, nice for whale watching.

Definitely our favourite place, stunning views, amazing number of whales just off the shore - only problems were the severe shortage of parking & shocking condition of the roads

Can’t afford to miss this place when you are in Byron Bay. Super beautiful beach and you can think it’s a paradise for people in Australia

This is a must do walk from Byron Bay up to the Lighthouse. The views are absolutely stunning - stunning aqua coloured water and reefs and white sands - we saw Whales breaching - what a magical part of the world

This is a beautiful spot, with vast horizons, panoramic views, some seasonal whale watching (which we were lucky enough to catch), great walk/hike/run there and the iconic lighthouse (which sometimes has tours). Plan ahead, go a bit early to secure a spot and leisurely watch...More
