“I hope you get to stay here!”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

We usually stay here at the Belongil Beachhouse (or now called Byron Beach Resort) which is fantastic! It has one of the best cafes in Byron here as well (The Treehouse)!

It is a 10min walk into Byron, but you can get a bicycle which is quicker. It is nice walking into the fun and craze of byron centre an then walking up the beach out of it back to the peace and tranquility of Belongil!
The beach is beautiful to swim, surf and relax at compared with the hundreds of people on main beach in Byron.

If you aren't staying at Belongil, walk up for some coffee and to relax!

“More swell”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

Belongil will always have a bit more in the way of waves because it faces more easterly than the pass. I caution inexperienced swimmers - it has some rips and can get rough in the afternoon when the sea breeze kicks up the wind swell/chop. Dogs allowed on parts are a big plus (IMO).

“Beach quite lovely, roads in dreadful condition”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Belongil is being taken away by the surf and the houses are built too close to the beach. The roads are in dreadful condition, sporting huge and frequent pot holes. The beach itself is quite lovely and the bird life is interesting. Dogs and people must stay out of bird breeding protection zones.

“Great Beach”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

Less people here than the Main Beach in Byron. Waves are easy to cope with for all ages and has a really wide low tide beach area making stacks of space for ball games, dogs, families and anyone to enjoy
