Welcome to the number one tourist destination in the state of New South Wales. Hyams Beach at Jervis Bay is just two and a half hours from Sydney and around three hours from Canberra. There are so many natural attractions around here you won’t run out of things to do. We promise.
Jervis Bay is a National Park and is really nice. Some say Hyams Beach has the clearest water in Australia – possibly the world. You’ll find the resort area around Hyams Beach inviting and simply fun. There are people from all over the world on holiday.
Did you know they spot kangaroos in the mornings on the beach? Along with the daily dolphins – this is a delight. We didn’t catch any, but you can find trails all around. This place is exploding with life. Snorkeling and diving are great. Make sure you try over by the rock outcroppings to see the most sea life.
We mentioned dolphin watching, but Hyams Beach in Jervis Bay has great facilities for jet-skiing, whale watching, sailing, swimming, fishing, exploring up and down the beach, tours, relaxing in the sun, and diving.
These guys boast the whitest sand in the world, but we think it may be an Ozzy tail. We found the sand medium grained and very dry. Nice to the feet.
Check out the Hyams Beach Caf & General Store with great staples and snacks. And you’ll find accommodation at any of a number of holiday homes and B&B’s. Make sure you take a dolphin or whale cruise and hike the beach for nature. You’ll be glad you did.
