Cabarita, situated on the coast road, is a small township with a long ocean beach and Norries Headland, which offers a long right hand point break. You can fish here from the beach, or in the estuary formed by Lake Cudgen. This is particularly good for children as the water is around 1m deep and excellent for boating, canoeing and fishing.
New Brighton, South Golden Beach and Ocean Shores
Located in the north of the shire, these beaches can be reached by road off the Pacific Highway, via north Ocean Shores and Ocean Shores.
20km north of Byron Bay, 'Bruns' has both ocean beaches and river activities. A small sheltered beach near the groyne is ideal for small children. When the tide's out the river becomes a sandy playground. The ocean beach south of the groyne is dog-friendly and patrolled by Surf Lifesavers in summer. Good fishing from the bridges over the river.
Accessed via Grays Lane (near the airfield) through the National Park, Tyagarah is a remote beach, parts of which are designated 'clothes optional'.
