Food scene

Yum Yum Tree Cafe is where we fell in love with Ocean Shores. It has a friendly, relaxed beachside vibe. The menu includes breakfast rolls and sandwiches, great coffee and tea. There is a park across the street, markets on a Saturday morning, and the New Brighton Beach is a short walk away.

We try to get to La Casita every time we visit Ocean Shores. Exquisite mexican food and unique drinks. A taste experience not to be missed. Book early to avoid missing out, and if booked out, you could try showing up at 5:00 for a potential spot on a bench seat.

This lookout provides perspective of both the hinterland and beach. It's a lovely example of the rolling hillsides and grazing cattle all around Byron Shire. Kathy and daughters' favourite view, across 20 years of visiting Byron Bay!!
