Beautiful beach which is very quiet. Be careful for bluebottles if the wind is blowing towards the coast

Byron Bays best kept secret. This is the beach the locals go to. Quiet, clean with beautiful sand as far as the eye can see, We walked this beach for an hour every evening, feet in the warm Pacific waters.

Hardly a soul on this huge beach which has gorgeous white sand, warm sea and crashing surf. Paradise.
