Earth’n’Sea first pulled pizzas from the oven in 1976, and it’s still going strong with a reputation for spinning the best pizza in Byron Bay. Pizzas come in four sizes right up to the 38 cm family size, with a choice of 23 flavours. If you can’t decide, get the Quattro Stagioni, which is basically four delicious pizzas in one.
If you fancy something else, you can get classic pasta dishes and salads. You’ll also find a good choice for kids and some handy, larger, combo takeaway deals for families and friends.
The restaurant is small and friendly, with a few tables inside and outside and a fully licensed bar, which has two locally brewed beers plus a selection of wines.

Treehouse on Belongil
The Treehouse sits nestled among palm trees just off Belongil beach. The vibe is chilled, and it’s a great spot to grab a drink in the afternoon sun or enjoy some live music in the evening.
In traditional style, all pizza bases are spun by hand, topped with a homemade Napoli tomato sauce, and cooked in a woodfired pizza oven. The toppings are original and well thought out, while gluten-free bases and vegan cheese offer plenty of choice for diners with dietary requirements.
A shorter but original cocktail menu is backed up with craft and bottled beers. The wine list is mainly Australian with a smattering of the chef’s favourites from France and Italy.

Owned and operated by the local Levy family, Legend Pizza has had the ovens burning since 1992. The pizzas range from small through to 15” giant, which serves three to four people. The variety of toppings is going to make choosing hard, but the menu headings include meat, vegetarian, chicken, ocean, spicy along with pasta dishes. There’s eight vegetarian choices and you can also pick your own toppings.
Legends is a casual eatery made busier with BYO, and it’s a popular stop-off for locals on the way home from a night in town.
