The Wreck is an icon of Byron Bay surf culture. Located just west of Main Beach, and barely a few minutes’ walk from Bayview Apartments, this very photogenic spot should not be missed. Whilst the beach does get quite busy during peak times, the people-watching is superb and the sheltered corner created by the rock wall makes for great swimming conditions.

Nestled in the corner of the Bay between Main Beach and The Pass, an easy walk from Bayview, is Clarkes Beach. An extension of Main Beach, Clarkes Beach is another beautiful spot that may offer some escape from the crowds. At high tide, it offers great swimming without any big waves to battle and low tide often creates a great lagoon for lazing. There are a few rocks around, so watch your feet when walking.

The Pass is iconic. And not just an icon of Byron Bay. It is an internationally recognised image of Australia. The never-ending wave, the infinite lines of swell, the lookout perfectly situated to admire it all. Whilst the sand and surf can both get very crowded, The Pass is worth a visit. There is space to spread out, safe swimming and pretty rock pools to explore. It is tucked away in the corner of The Bay, often providing a perfect escape from the wind. An easy, flat walk from Bayview apartments or a very short drive and you will see.

Just around the point from The Pass is Wategos beach. Famous for its luxurious mansions and celebrity spotting, a trip to Wategos should be on any to-do list. It is stunningly photogenic and a wonderful place to let a sunny day roll by. Wategos is also known for its great surf conditions- recommended for experienced surfers only.

If you want to walk a stretch of sandy beach where you will pass only a handful of people and a puppy or two (it is leash-free), head north past The Wreck and keep on walking. The crowds will thin and you’ll feel alone in the best possible way. While Belongil is unpatrolled and slightly more dangerous for swimming, it is perfect for sunset walks, sunbaking and beach games.

Brunswick township is excuse enough to leave the bustle of Byron- delicious food (don’t miss Old Maids Burger Store), local shopping and a great pub; Hotel Brunswick. However, add the fact that Brunswick River is one of the best swimming spots in the area and there is no excuse not to go. The 25-minute drive will feel like nothing as soon as you get there.

Venture a few beaches south of Byron and you’ll find Lennox Heads. A stunning town with incredible beaches (the famous Seven Mile Beach starts here) plus the beautiful Lake Ainsworth- a huge tea tree lake, perfect for swimming. Famous for its surfing breaks, but there is much more to Lennox and well worth a visit.
