Hyams Beach is located on the southern shores of Jervis Bay which is about a three hour drive from Sydney. It is one of the most beautiful beaches you can set your eyes on. For long now the Hyams Beach has resisted the onslaught of commercialization and this is one the reasons why I suppose the beach still looks so neat and enchanting in its natural environment. Surrounded by the Jervis Bay National Park to the north and the Booderee National Park to the south, the whole place gives you spectacular visuals and an amazingly diverse wildlife. The 2.5 km coastline has the whitest sand you can find on a beach. Infact its already made a entry into the Guinness books for being the beach that has the whitest sand. How cool is that!! To top it all the water is so crystal clear and is an enchanting shade of turquoise.
It is ideal for swimming, fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving. The surrounding bushlands is full of many native animals and birds. There are walking trails that have been specifically set up to suit all ages. Early in the morning you can spot the kangaroos hopping about on the shores of the beach while the dolphins can be spotted all day in the water. The beach has only one general store and a café where you can get all your day to day requirements from groceries, toiletries, newspapers to liquor. The café serves some excellent food and is surely going to be a memorable part of the experience at the Hyams Beach. Accommodation is scarce around the beach but there are a lot of private homes in the villages that offer great rooms and service and caters to all kinds of tastes and budgets.
