With its arc of shimmering white sand, Little Wategos Beach is the perfect wedding location for nature lovers. Say your vows in the great outdoors to the sound of seagulls and splashing waves.

Nestled in the curved tip of Cape Byron, this north-facing beach is well protected from prevailing winds and boasts stunning ocean and coastal views. You'll need to make a 600m stroll along Cape Byron walking track to reach Little Wategos Beach. But the extra effort is worth it to escape the hustle and bustle of town on your special day.

When it comes to wedding photos, you're spoiled for choice along this 150m slice of paradise. And if you and your loved ones decide to let your hair down, it's also a great place for a refreshing dip.

Want to linger in this idyllic spot? Spoil yourself with nearby beachside accommodation at award-winning Imeson Cottage, Mildenhall Cottage, Thomson Cottage, or Partridge Cottage and Geoffs Shed.
