Tallows Beach

Tallows Beach

New South Wales, North Coast

The most consistent surf spot within walking distance to Byron Bay, Tallows Beach is also very popular when the summer nor' east winds are up and the surf is flat at the beaches in front of town. The peaky nature of the waves prove challenging for surfers along with the strong rips that form here so this spot is best avoided by beginners unless everywhere else is flat and the waves here are very small.

Wave Type
Safest during small north east swells when the waves are smallest in the northern corner, along with tiny east to south swells. Bigger swells see Tallows offer shifting, powerful peaks that break quickly over uneven sandbars.

Strong rips and longshore currents normally form along the length of the beach, making this spot potentially dangerous for the inexperienced surfer. Beginner surfers will find easier surfing conditions at Byron's Main Beach or Clarkes Beach when the waves here are too big.

Afternoon fun in the sun. Apart from tiny wave days, the surf at Tallows is often challenging for beginners due to the deep water rip currents and powerful waves that break here. Easier surfing conditions can normally be found in the bay at Byron.
