There’s something magical about “The Bay”, as longtime locals call it. It’s the kind of place where strangers smile at each other, cars give way to pedestrians, and even the locals seem to be permanently in holiday mode. Your golden ticket to this lifestyle? A beachfront abode, for a few days at least.
With its beach houses and penthouses, eco-villas, and luxury beachfront apartments, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to beachfront accommodation in Byron Bay. The only thing left to do is to choose your beach. Would you prefer to swim in gin-clear water at Main Beach and Clarkes Beach? Or take long, relaxed strolls and ride horses along wilder, quieter Belongil Beach? Or maybe your priority is to go surfing at The Pass or Wategos, nestled at the base of Cape Byron, mainland Australia’s most easterly point?
The good news: All the beaches are just a short coastal stroll from each other. And did we mention that the sea is warm enough for swimming all year round?
