If you’re looking to visit Byron Bay, Wategos Beach is a must-stop.

Barbecue areas make perfect spots for the picnic where one can enjoy good food and picturesque scenery.

Finally, once you’ve had a lovely and relaxing day on the beach, you can start your energizing walk from Wategos Beach to Cape Byron and its Lighthouse. The steps may be steep, but the experience is well worth it.
Are you a people-person? Do you enjoy crowds and laughter? Then, by all means, make sure to check out Bondi Beach.
