Beaches in Lennox Head
About Lennox Head
This quiet, coastal village attracts visitors who love to relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the area. Surfers know the beach well for its internationally famous right-hand point break, and many make the pilgrimage to surf the local waves.
Visit Lake Ainsworth on the northern edge of Lennox Head’s main village and admire the distinctive blue-brown waters caused by the surrounding tea trees. Take in the panoramic views of nearby Seven Mile Beach, pack a picnic and laze by the water, or play sports on the soft sand.
