Plentiful beaches surround Byron Bay as well as the expanded region. For those that wish to get out of the city and away from typical surfing and swimming beaches, expansive Seven Mile Beach calls. This peaceful track of sand presents itself for other activities, such as horseback riding, 4WD excursions and fishing.
Seven Mile Beach stretches from Lennox Head to Broken Head, and the area near Lennox Head gives access also to Lake Ainsworth. This special tea-tree infused, freshwater lake makes for a delightful summer getaway where swimming, stand-up paddle boarding and picnicking are the norm.
Being further away from Byron Bay, Seven Mile Beach is an escape for travelers looking for a quieter destination. From the calming sounds of the ocean waves to the extra space between beach-goers on the sand, it's a peaceful retreat near Byron Bay.
Reach Seven Mile Beach by driving south from Byron Bay along Bangalow Road, turning into Broken Head Road. Broken Head is reached in around 11 minutes, but the actual Seven Mile Beach is only accessible by foot or 4WD vehicle.
