Wategos Beach

Natural Attractions

You’ll adore the peaceful beauty of this sheltered beach on the northern side of Cape Byron. Protected by the headland from the wilder waters beyond, it’s a fabulous spot to picnic and play. The local bottlenose dolphins use it for recreation as well, showing off their silky surfing skills on the incoming waves.

You can cook up your lunch on one of the free beachside barbecues and enjoy your picnic on the beach or at one of the picnic tables.

After you’ve cooled off and refueled you’ll be ready to tackle the steep steps at the beach’s end up to Cape Byron and the lighthouse.

Take a virtual tour of Wategos Beach captured with Google Street View Trekker.
