Byron Bay is one of my favourite places in Australia, not only because there are sublime beaches all along the coast but also it is the vibes. I remember when I was in Brazil, back in 2015, looking for some places to visit in Australia and since then I fell in love with Byron Bay.
There is a boho and hippie style in the air and you can enjoy the environment to do a meditation, reiki, refine your yoga practice, to eat a organic and fresh food. It’s a perfect place to relax, chill and balance your soul.
Byron Bay is also one of the most iconic places in the world to surf. Many australians live there to surf and the contrasting beauty of Byron is a deciding factor in settling into the surfing lifestyle rather than elsewhere.
3 Days in Byron Bay
In my first time in the magic Byron Bay I only spent 3 days – really sad because in my opinion it’s a short time, if you have 5 days can be even better. But anyway, when we’ve planned this trip it was to travel around Gold Coast for 6 days but we changed our mind to spend few days in Byron Bay.
You can fly to Ballina airport, the closest around 35 minutes driving or the Gold Coast airport, around 1 hour driving.
I my first time in Byron I stayed at Byron Springs and I had lovely days there.
The beach house is placed just a short walk through the sand dunes to Tallows Beach and they provide free bikes to ride for the main beach or the other stunning places, it’s very easy to go by bike.
The room was great and very comfy and you can choose if want a private ensuite or there is also rooms with shared bathroom facilities if you want something even cheaper. The guest house has large verandahs and a comfortable lounge room with TV, magazines and books.
They also provide a delicious breakfast with coffee, bread, jelly, cakes, delicious brownies and fruits included in your stay. Click Here to book your accomodation.
What to do and see in Byron Bay
1. Main beach – Immediately in front of the town, there are many restaurants, beautiful stores, places to rent surfboards, coffee shops, markets etc. The beach is nice and beautiful but can be crowded.
2. The Pass – I loved this beach, it’s stunning! There are great views, the ocean has a crystal clear water and you can’t miss a surf day there! I had a lot of fun surfing and I really recommend you to do the same!
3. Cape Byron Lighthouse – This 1901 lighthouse is Australia’s most easterly point! We walked along the coast to watch the sunset from the top. Perfect and stunning views!
4. Tallows beach – Tallows Beach is a deserted sandy stretch that extends for 7km south from Cape Byron. Dolphin sightings are common there and it’s amazing to watch people surfing with them.
5. Watego’s beach – located at east of main beach, one of Byron’s best places to picnic, paddle and play. There’s a lot more to see there…
