Hyams Beach

29Oct

nly 35 minutes by car from the Coral Tree Lodge, winning the Guinness World Record in 2006, Hyams Beach is renowned for having ‘the whitest sand in the world’. O

Located on the southern shores of Jervis Bay, Hyams Beach is a popular holiday spot on the South Coast of NSW. The name refers to both the charming seaside village and the beach itself, which is surrounded by beautiful natural attractions that include Jervis Bay National Park to the north and Booderee National Park to the south. With white sand beaches stretching out as far as the eye can see, it’s the ideal spot for a relaxing break.

Diving and snorkelling are very popular in Jervis Bay, where you may spot octopus, cuttlefish, sea dragons – and possible even friendly seals. Surfing, sailing, windsurfing and sea kayaking are also popular in this idyllic marine park, as isstand up paddleboarding. Whale and dolphin watching cruises are available from nearby Huskisson, home to many fantastic vantage points during whale migration season.

A large range of bushwalks can be found in and around Booderee National Park where you can also learn more about the local Aboriginal history and culture. Campers are welcome at three camping grounds in the park. The White Sands Walk along the shores of Jervis Bay is an enjoyable way to take in panoramic views of the bay, stopping for a swim or a picnic on the beach.

Explore the Hyams Beach Trail, also known as bird spotter’s walk, a scenic stroll where you could see new holland honeyeaters, eastern spinebills and rosellas.
