Whilst there has been lots of news recently about shark attacks in the area we felt very safe swimming at Lennox. Spoke to locals who all advised swimming at low tide in the man made boat channels.

Beautiful !!! We also got to watch the Kite surfers which was pretty amazing. It was a bit cool and windy so we didn't brave the surf. We'll be back though :)

South end of seven mile beach. Has nice waves and is a surfers paradise but at the time we were there we were unable to swim due to the presents of great white sharks. This has been a problem for this whole region this year. The beach is best in te morning as the wind picks up in the afternoon.

Love Lennox Head. Wonderful ambiance, soft sand, the views are amazing. It is just so relaxing to walk the shore line, let the waves lap over your feet, and feel the breeze flow over you. It's a beautiful place to be.

Fabulous. Friendly travellers and locals. Great places to get a bite to eat. Not at all touristy (at least whilst I was there). I'll be back soon!!!

The beach is long (?7 miles?), wide with nice clean sand. There is a patrolled area but the majority of the beach is unpatrolled. Sun, sand and sea. Great place.

It is a great wide and long beach with clean sand. A great safe place for kids to play in the sand and swim.

One of those places you just say "I could live here ". Beautiful beach, cafes, coffee, surf shops, even a "vintage"dress shop, all you need. Hotel overlooking the beach, WOW!!
