Belongil Beach

Belongil Beach

New South Wales, North Coast

Belongil is one of the quieter beaches of Byron and it can be fun on small surf days for beginner surfers seeking a little more space in the surf zone. Strong rip currents do occur on bigger surf days, so it's best to stick to Main Beach or Clarkes Beach when the waves are big.

Wave Type
Fast breaking rights and lefts with close outs are the norm at Belongil Beach. The sandbars aren't as broad as they are at Clarkes Beach, so rides are shorter and waves break with more energy, making for more challenging surfing conditions, so it's best for beginners and kids on small swells when Main and Clarkes Beaches are flat and during south west winds which are common during the cooler months of the year. Avoid the rip currents and the long shore gutters that exist even on small surf days.

Good Wind Direction
Best in West and South winds

Good Swell Direction For Fun Beginner Waves

Have fun surfing Belongil Beach by practicing surfing etiquette and surf safety.

Lifeguard Patrolled
Belongil Beach is not patrolled, but Main Beach is patrolled from November to April - always swim between the red and yellow flags.

Beginners & kids are best to surf at beaches when Lifeguards are on patrol or with a friend who has decades of surfing experience.
