    Hi Ian,

    Wategos Beach is really great, it's just 5mn from the main beach in Byron Bay. Great spot if you surf, as well...

    If by 'near' 2 hours south is acceptable... you want to check out Yamba! This is such an underrated destination its not funny. So chilled.. World Class Surf beaches. One of the best hostels I have stayed at is there the Yamba YHA. http://yha.com.au/hostels/nsw/byron-bay-surrounds/yamba/ over 10 years ago

    If main beach (across the road from the beach hotel) is too busy, go to fishheads restaurat on the right hand side and across the groin is a quieter beach that goes for miles, depending on how far you want to walk. This is where the surfbreak called "the wreck" is. But you can walk for miles, and go nudie if you want! The other side of main beach you can walk for 5 minutes and get to the pass, great for learner surfers. Over the headland is Wategoes, million dollar beach front property, but free to use the beach. On the other side of the light house - 5 minutes drive or 30 minutes walk, is cosy corner - further up this beach nudie too! If you are driving, drive south on the Ballina road towards Lennox Heads and about 15 minutes out is the turn off the Broken Head - quiet and peaceful. Going north, head out on the highway and take the Brunswick Heads turn off for an amazing beach that connects back to Byron south - 10kms of great deserted beach. Wonderful rivers and fishing here too! Phew - is that enough information! Plenty of great beaches to choose from here! over 10 years ago
