Restaurant
“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 ”

Bed & Breakfast
“Open from about 7 am the Kiosk at the Beach Cafe is an ideal place for a grab-and-go snack or coffee from early morning. Simply order your coffee, snack etc and relax on the tables provided on your way to or from Clarke’s Beach. Convenient, casual ‘beachy’ eating - in your swimmers! Can suggest the prawn roll, when available, as a great after-swim light lunch. ”

“If you like a hit of golf, the golf course is challenging and stunning. The club house offers an outside deck area for dining and drinks and Sunday's you usually can catch a live band. ”

“Top Shop is good for brekkie and lunch....and COFFEE. 2 min walk will have your morning coffee taken care of. Take a mug from home and help the planet :) (not the pink hand made ones please...they're my precious favourites. Granola/yohgurt and fresh fruit is our favourite brekkie, but egg and bacon rolls are also very good. Lunchtime is burgers, but they have a ready made quinoa salad that is very yummy too.”
