The Beaches of Byron: Broken Head
Beautiful beaches and great surf come to mind when you mention Byron Bay. Surrounded by natural beauty, you’ll find it easy to unwind and relax on soft sand, enjoy invigorating swims in crystal-clear water and glorious sunrises and sunsets over the deep blue ocean.
Whether it’s swimming, surfing, kayaking fishing, or just rolling out your towel and relaxing on the soft sand Byron Bay’s gorgeous beaches have something that will suit everyone.
Surrounded by a national park reserve, Broken Head is both a popular surf spot and family beach, and has BBQ and shower facilities and a large grassy area for picnics. A great spot if you want to avoid the busier beaches in town and still semi-protected from a southerly wind if you venture to the southern corner.
From the car park a track leads through the trees to the Three Sisters walking track. The Aboriginal story behind the Three Sisters tells the tale of three sisters who were turned into the rocky outcrops near the headland. From the top of the headland you can take in view back to the lighthouse, spot migrating whales, see eagles swooping for prey, sea wildlife and the abundance of wildflowers that burst with colour.
