Around the corner from The Pass is beautiful Wategos Beach, nestled in under the Byron Bay Lighthouse. Named after a local Indigenous family, Wategos Beach is a small, protected beach that is a pilgrimage site for surfers and swimmers alike. Lying along the walk from the town to the Lighthouse, this beach is a busy and popular spot for longboard surfers and most weekends the local Malibu Club holds their competitions here. The home of some of the most exclusive accommodation in Byron Bay, Wategos has views across the bay to the Hinterland and lies around the corner from the most easterly spot in Australia. Be one of the first people in Australia to watch the sunrise as you walk along Wategos Beach in the dawn light.
