Byron Bay is the perfect place for a family holiday. Here are some tips to make sure your family getaway is the holiday you and your family need and deserve.
Family Friendly Accommodation Byron Bay
It can be difficult to find accommodation when on holidays that is suitable for the needs of a whole family. We suggest, renting via Airbnb. While not all Airbnb accommodation is family friendly, there are plenty of hosts who are more than happy to rent out their property to families. A good example is Aqua on Byron. This family sized beachfront holiday home across the road from Main Beach, which is a patrolled beach, so is perfect for families with children. It is also a short distance to the center of town. After a long day of sun and surf, you don’t always feel like cooking a big meal for your hungry family. Luckily it is just a short walk down the road to Byron Central where there are many award winning cafes and restaurants for you to choose from.
Family Friendly Activities in Byron Bay
Many families are happy to keep things simple when on holiday by heading to the beach every day to enjoy the sun and the surf. Every now and then it’s fun to do something a little different and make some unique memories as a family. One option is to go Kayaking with dolphins. This is a fun easy activity that they whole family will love. Another thing you could do as a whole family, is learn to surf. Soul Surf School has surf lesson for children and adults giving you the opportunity to try something new and exciting in a safe environment.
Family Friendly Beaches
There are plenty of beaches in Byron that make for a great day out with the family. If you are going to swim in the surf we recommend you stick to patrolled beaches such as Main and Wategos which are also great spots for picnic and barbecues. Belongil is a relaxed dog friendly beach, perfect for afternoon family strolls. Clarkes Beach is another great option for families as it often has shallow tidal pools that are perfect for young children.
Family Friendly Restaurants
Want to go out to dinner as a family without feeling stressed about how much noise or mess you are making? Earth and Sea Pizza and Pasta restaurant has an extensive and diverse menu so even the fussy one in the family will be impressed. This restaurant has a casual vibe and there are pencils and colouring books for the little ones to play with. If you are happy to go on a bit of a road trip for your food, Three Blue Ducks is located just outside of Byron and is also a great place to take the family. This venue sells delicious food using produce and ingredients grown on their fully working farm. The kids will get a kick out of all the farm animals including pigs, cow and chickens and they can play on the playground while they wait for their healthy gourmet meal.
