If you’re looking for that unspoilt coastal meets bush getaway, then look no further than Jervis Bay. Located on the South coast of New South Wales, Australia, the 20km stretch of coastline boasts pristine waters that fade into seamless gradients of blue and is home to the whitest sand in the whole world!
I know I am not alone in finding a regular escape to this area of stunning natural beauty. The bay area is a wonderment of nature’s design which has enabled the delicate placing of small towns that only seek to add to the charm of the selection of beaches to while away your hours on.
When living in Sydney, I found myself traveling to this gorgeous destination almost every summer weekend, exploring and adventuring all the beaches that Jervis Bay has to offer. If you’re wondering where to start on your Jervis Bay beach search then look no further; here are the top 5 beaches of Jervis Bay:
1. Hyams Beach
Hyams Beach can be found in the South of Jervis Bay and has the whitest sand in the world! The stunning coastline is hugged by the Booderee national park which means you can enjoy being surrounded by Australia’s unique wildlife as you wade in clear waters and sunbathe from the scenic shore.
2. Huskisson Beach
Huskisson beach is the most popular as it is straps the largest town in the area, Huskisson. It is adjacent to nearby shops and cafes and is perfect for families due to it’s proximity to ammenities such as the Jervis Bay Kayak & Paddlesports store, where you can hire Kayaks and paddle boards from.
3. Callala Beach
Callala Beach is situated in the North of Jervis Bay and is my personal favourite. The wide stretch of fine powder white sand meets the clearest water that I’ve laid eyes on. Here you can enjoy the unique bush walks that fringe the coast line, kayak the calm waters and snorkel with the tranquil underwater wildlife at Jervis Bay marine park which is situated south of the beach.
4. Greenfield Beach
Greenfield can be found between Hyam’s beach and Murray’s beach. Tucked away in its own cove and nestled by eucalyptus trees and rugged cliffs, Greenfield boats peaceful vibes making a peaceful atmosphere to lay down and read a book while listening to the waves crash.
5. Murrays beach
Murray’s beach is located at the most southern area of Jervis Bay and within the Booderee national park. Here you can find sandstone cliffs, sea caves and vibrant corals that dapple the shore line. Unsurprisingly, it’s a scuba diving and snorkelling hot spot. The location is also adjacent from Bowen Island which is a safe haven for various species such as fairy penguins. Although Bowen Island is closed to the public, it is not uncommon for its wildlife to venture to Murrays Beach and say hello to its beach goers.
