It is stunningly photogenic and a wonderful place to let a sunny day roll by. Wategos is also known for its great surf conditions- recommended for experienced surfers only.”

“Special night out? Look no further than St Elmo’s - amazing food, and a sophisticated and intimate atmosphere. The only drawback is snaring a table as, even on a quiet night, St Elmo’s is often booked out, so remember to book early. Whether you start at the bar or head straight to your table for some of the Bay’s best tapas, you‘re assured of a fantastic evening at this superb venue. REMEMBER: Put on your best holiday outfit and head to St Elmo’s for a night to remember! Open 7 nights a week from 5 pm st elmos byron bay ”

Place to eat
“ - Vegan/Vegetarian - Folk is a small, funky daytime café where all products are made in house with a commitment to vegetarian & plant-based eating. Folk advertises as: Organic, local, ethical. Super food, it is super enjoyable to sit there and it has super friendly owners ;-). Has featured in Vogue, Monocle, Marie Claire, Gourmet Traveller and in many more. It is a bit out of town (1/399 Ewingsdale Rd) but everyone seems to find it! ”
