They draw thousands from around the world who come to ride their waves, many never leave, and I don’t think you could get any more Australian than learning to surf at Byron Bay..
LEGENDARY AMONG SURFERS
But you don’t have to be a surfer to appreciate the amazing beaches on offer in Byron. Just taking a swim, a walk or celebrating one of the magic sunsets with a cold drink is enough to cast that spell over you that many can’t escape from.
Main Beach is the closest beach to town and the most popular. If you’ve ever seen a postcard of Byron I bet it was of Main Beach.
It’s only a 10-minute walk to Byron Bay town from Clarkes Beach and another friendly place to swim with your kids, and less people than Main Beach.
The Pass is a famous surf break and almost inspired me to grab a board and have a lesson. The surfing looked awesome with long smooth waves which seemed like they went all the way into Clarkes Beach.
Crystal clear water, rocks dotted along the sand, gentle rolling waves perfect for the longboarders doing their thing, and it’s sheltered and safe for the kiddies. We never visit Byron Bay without going to Wategos Beach.
