Hyams Beach was recently named as number 8 in the World's 50 Best Beaches by Flight Network, which is a pretty awesome achievement but did you know that there are actually HEAPS of white sand beaches in Jervis Bay? Hyams Beach gets super busy because it's so popular, and it can be really difficult to get a car park so please have a look below at some of our favourite alternatives for white sand beaches and other ways to get to Hyams.
In January 2017 Canberra Times journo 'Tim The Yowie Man' decided it was time to prove it once and for all and took sand samples from seven Jervis Bay white sand beaches and concluded it was impossible to tell the difference, his only wish was that he had been able to gather sand from all 16 Jervis Bay beaches.
We've put together a quick guide to the white sand beaches of Jervis Bay including Hyams Beach, so you can make the most of your white sand hunt. Read our tips below for finding the best beach for you including information on facilities nearby and best selfie spots!
Nelsons and Plantation Point
Callala Bay and Beach
Beecroft Peninsula is the northern headland of Jervis Bay, and has some stunning beaches, some which are very hard to get to and thus you will often have it to yourself!
