Little Wategos Beach

Sitting in the shadow of the 100 metre high Cape Byron headland, Little Wategos is the most easterly beach in Australia. The beach can be accessed by a set of steps and a track which lead away from the main Byron Bay Lighthouse walk.

Being one of the less accessible beaches in Byron Bay means Little Wategos is a great get-away spot. It’s only about 150 metres in length but it never gets busy.

Facing north, the beach is fairly sheltered. Whilst it is comparatively safe to swim here care should be taken on account of there being no lifeguards and the currents can be strong.

Little Wategos is a well known fishing spot with a good variety of fish to be caught off the rocks.
