Hyams Beach

Hyams Beach is a secluded settlement on the southern shores of Jervis Bay, about 2.5 hours drive from Sydney. The village is surrounded by National and Marine Parks and the beach is said to have “the whitest sand in the world”

Aside from this, there are lots of good bushwalks, coastal walks and cycleways providing ample opportunities to get out and about.

The exceptionally clear waters of Jervis Bay are ideal for fishing, swimming, snorkelling and diving. The surrounding bushland is home to many native animals and an abundance of bird life. There are walking tracks to suit all ages and levels of fitness.

The Hyams Beach General Store and Cafe provides most of the immediate needs of the short term visitor, including groceries, newspapers, delicatessen and liquor. The Cafe rates a mention in the Sydney Morning Herald good Food Guide and “serves a wide range of interesting food throughout the day”.

Most accommodation in the village is in private houses. These range from simple homes to architect designed luxury which can cater to all tastes and budgets.
