Byron Bay Beach Wedding Locations

Here are the most popular Ballina and Byron Bay Beach Wedding Locations. They are all fairly easy to get to (though Little Wategos is a bit of a trek).

The following images are ordered from North to South so that they can easily be found on a map of the Northern Rivers NSW.

Cabarita

Starting at the North end of the Byron Bay Beach Wedding Locations, Cabarita is a small coastal village with a wide sandy beach and scenic headland.

The town is close to Gold Coast airport so is handy for fly in fly out destination weddings.

Main Beach, Clarkes Beach and The Pass – Byron Bay

One beach with three names make up the busy Byron Beaches.

For weddings there is a line in the sand at Clarkes Beach where the East side is managed by the Cape Byron Trust and the West by the Byron Shire.

This is a busy beach every day of the year so if you are precious about your privacy then be warned, there is none.

Wategos Beach – Byron Bay

Beautiful world renowned Wategos Beach is the most protected beach from the Southerly winds and Southerly swells. It is also the most expensive real estate on the coast.

Always abuzz with activity, Wategos will charm you like it has so many others. A premium beach wedding destination for good reason.

Little Wategos Beach – Byron Bay

A 400m hilly trek East from Wategos will take you to this magic little beach and the Easternmost point of mainland Australia.

This is a photographers dream with secluded nooks, explosive waves  and steep cliffs. This is my personal favourite of the Byron Bay Beach Wedding locations.

Tallows Beach Byron Bay

Tallows Beach is on the South side of Cape Byron and is accessed though the National Park. Cosy corner is popular for wedding but a bit of a hike if you have elderly guests.

Very protected from those hot summer North-Easterly winds and not as busy as the main Byron Beaches unless the surf is pumping.

Tallows Beach – Suffolk Park

Tallows Beach stretches from Cape Byron to Broken Head. Suffolk Park has many beachfront properties blocking access.

You can get to the beach from the occasional car parks dotted along the main beach drag. Plenty of privacy on this sandy stretch if that is what you are after.

Skennars Head Whale Watching Lookout

Just another day at the beach. Young dolphin pups learning to surf at Skennars Head. This is a popular whale watching spot for the annual whale migrations. The elevation combined with the ocean in the background makes for some dramatic cliff top photography.

Sharpes Beach and Flat Rock

Flat Rock easily makes it into my favourite Byron Bay beach wedding locations list. It is a popular surf spot with a pristine sandy beach and protected Southern corner for hesitant swimmers.

The sealed car park provides easy beach access for wedding guests and the beach is never crowded.

Angels Beach

Angels Beach is in the middle of East Ballina but mostly deserted due to it not being visible from the road.

This sandy secluded beach is a great beach wedding location and is easily accessed from the Flat Rock camping ground car park. Other parts of the beach can be accessed from the Angels beach car park or Trestles headland.
