5 Accommodations in Sunny Byron Bay That Won’t Break the Bank


The cool ocean water rushes up to my feet, washing away the granules of sand stuck in between my toes, giving me a nice respite from the warm sandy beach.

Seagulls squawk in the distance as I see surfers riding the waves, with a few unfortunate crashes. They seem unperturbed however, excited even, to get up and catch a new wave.

Crash. Surf. Crash. Surf. Crash. Surf. Their actions and movement are much like the rhythmic crashing of Byron Bay’s waves. This scene repeats day after day after day.

In the Southeastern Australian state of New South Wales lies Byron Bay, well-known for being a backpacker’s paradise. Recently, this small coastal town has seen a surge in tourism, drawing crowds aside from your usual fare of backpackers.

With white sandy beaches, clear cerulean waters, and fresh air (you’ll be surprised how underrated this is), Byron Bay has become one of Australia’s hottest destinations.

Here are 5 accommodations in and around Byron Bay that won’t burn a large hole in your pocket.

1. Ruskin House Bed and Breakfast

The Ruskin House is not your typical quiet Bed and Breakfast. Boasting a 4-star accommodation, you can expect excellent service and amenities than what you would usually expect from a B&B. All suites come with parking spaces, free WiFi, and daily servicing with the rooms all being soundproofed.

And of course, the other important half of a B&B is the breakfast. At Ruskin House, there’s a choice of continental breakfast or a bevvy of cooked options such as buttermilk pancakes with bacon and caramelised bananas.

Glen Villa Resort is a perennial backpacker’s favourite. A caravan park, this resort is more communal living than private 5-star accommodation. A 14-acre park that consists of a wide range of cabins, huts, cottages, and caravans, there’s an accommodation experience for everyone.

Glen Villa Resort eschews your typical concept of high-end accommodation and focuses on what really matters— fuss-free comfortable living that encourages social interaction around the grounds. The various options also mean you can have a spectrum from adventurous to private and a slight brush of luxury.

Perhaps when it comes to location, it’s hard to beat Bay Motel, which finds itself sitting right on Byron Bay’s Main Beach. A stone’s throw away from shops, cafes, and well, the beach.

Apart from the prominent seaside location, one of the plus points that we like of Bay Motel is that their suite can accommodate up to 5 guests. From family suites to what the Bay Motel calls their hideaway suite, the rooms at the Bay Motel are all-encompassing, making it one of the most popular choices amongst travellers, especially families with young children.
