Byron Bay Beaches
Byron Bay has beautiful beaches.
When Byron Bay is viewed from the air it appears like an island, thinly attached to the mainland on the south western side. Surround by ocean on 3 sides, there are many amazing beaches to explore.

Pictured framed by Byron Bay's hinterland, a stroll along Belongil beach at sunset is a fairytale experience. This uniquely north facing beach allows you to watch the sun rise and set from east to west whilst maintaining a perfectly northern aspect.
All of Byron can be accessed on foot from here. Stroll into town, Main Beach and the further on to the pass and to the Lighthouse.
Moving east towards the cape the Belongil blends into Main Beach at the The Wreck.
The Wreck as it is known locally was created by the marooning of the SS Wollongar which ran ashore in 1921, creating over time a perfect cylindrical surf break. It also attracts a diverse array of marine life such as subtropical fish, turtles as well as dolphins which are regularly seen close to shore.
It is a great place to observe under water life. It is very easy to access from shore
