Situated on the northern shores of Jervis Bay, Hyams beach is one of a number of stunning beaches. To put things in perspective, Jervis Bay is around 4 times the size of Sydney harbour and much of it is lined with unspoilt beach.

Here you will find lush forests spilling onto white sand beaches which are gently lapped by the crystal clear azure waters of the Pacific Ocean. And when we say "white sand" we mean it - according to the Guinness Book of Records, Hyams Beach has the whitest sand in the world.

Despite being only a little over 2 hours drive south of Sydney Hyams beach has an untouched, 'natural bush' feel to it. Jervis Bay itself is a national park, as is the area to the south of the bay at Booderee and both offer some great bushwalking including the he 'White Sands Walk'.

Whilst many visitors will be more than content to relax on the beach in these beautiful surrounds there are plenty of opportunities to get a little more active in the sheltered waters of Jervis Bay. Diving and snorkelling are popular and this marine park provides no shortage of sealife to discover. This ranges from sea dragons and octopus right up to whales and dolphins which can be spotted off the Beecroft Peninsula.
Sailing, kitesurfing, kayaking and the now ubiquitous stand up paddleboarding are also popular in the bay.
