There’s nothing better to do in Byron Bay than enjoy the ocean. Go surfing at The Pass and enjoy the waves. All of Byron’s beaches are nicknamed “The Pass.” Travelers can bring their boards and find plenty of space to surf without bumping into others.

For lunch, support the local community by choosing to dine at Mana Haven Cafe Restaurant. The café is a run by a church and produces vegetarian meals made from local produce. The restaurant has almost a 5-star rating from more than 100 reviews on Google. Not only is the food fantastic, the staff is great as well.

Enjoy a late dinner at Il Buco Cafe & Pizzeria. They sell gourmet pizza in a calming atmosphere. They use local ingredients and have many variations on pizza. After finishing a pie, order the homemade dessert as well.
