We had never heard of Belongil Beach until we saw it on a local map and decided to try it as we were staying at the van park nearby. Definitely much quieter than main beach and much easier to get a park. The parking is free but the carpark itself is an absolute disgrace and when we drove in our first impressions weren't great. However the beach itself was very nice and we spent a couple of very relaxing hours here swimming and enjoying the surroundings and the views of the lighthouse. Not recommend for children as it isn't patrolled and we got dumped a couple of times so can be quite rough - for experienced swimmers only.

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!

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).
