Beach Byron Bay
This restaurant is one of Byron Bay’s best for oceanfront dining, co-owned by Byron restaurateurs Ben and Belinda Kirkwood and the lavish Fink Group. The eatery is set on the dunes of Clarke’s Beach, offering views of the Pacific, and was rebranded in 2016 with an Italian-inspired menu created by award-winning chef David Lovett. Top dishes feature slow-cooked Bangalow pork neck, handmade pasta, wood-grilled fish mains and Fremantle octopus. Visit the takeaway kiosk to pick up picnic supplies including fish and chips, a bacon and egg roll or spaghetti and tomato jaffles (toasties). The menu is based around local ingredients sourced from farmers’ markets in the area.
