Beaches to Visit
The small and secluded village of Hyams Beach in Jervis Bay is renowned for its pristine, powdery white sand which is so fine it ‘squeaks’. Here crystal clear waters lap onto the white sandy shore, fringed by dramatic National Park bushland which can best be described as paradise. Scenic bush and coastal walks allow you to take in breathtaking views of the bay and surrounding National Park and the clear waters are ideal for fishing, swimming, snorkelling and diving. The surrounding bushland is home to many native animals and an abundance of bird life. The Hyams Beach General Store and Cafe provides most of the immediate needs of the short term visitor, serving delicious food in a relaxed atmosphere.
Nelson is one of the quieter beaches in Jervis Bay’s White Sands Coast. It is a dog friendly beach. Dogs are allowed off the lead from 4.30pm to 8.30am. It has spectacular white sand and often has enough room to spread out with the family, as well as gentle waves for swimming and paddling. The beach runs from Plantation Point reserve in the north to Blenheim Beach in the south. Walkers can head north to Huskisson on the Round the Bay Walk, a wide, sealed, shared pathway, or continue south to Greenfield and Jervis Bay National Park on the White Sands Walk.
