Jervis Bay, NSW

White sands in Jervis Bay

The South Coast and Southern Highlands is an easy drive from Sydney and comes highly recommended by locals.

It’s a very pretty drive down the south coast. My first stop was Berry, a very sweet little country town filled with cafes and homeware stores stuffed with knick knacks for cluttering up your house. However my destination for the night was Huskisson, in Jervis Bay. It’s a cute little coastal town on the edge of the national park.

First stop was the famous Hyams Beach, renowned for its brilliant white sand, which according to the Guinness book of records is the whitest in the world. Who’s to quibble as to whether or not this is true, it is a truly stunning beach. Although in theory it was the first day of spring, it was like a summer’s day, very warm with lots of people swimming and sunbathing.

There’s a gorgeous coastal walk, which hugs the coast line starting from a beach closer to Huskisson, and heading down beyond Hyams Beach, taking in a number of little beaches and coves including the idyllic Chinaman’s Beach. Appropriately, it’s called the White Sands walk. ┬áThere’s any number of sections to walk, from Greenfields beach over to Blenheim beach – more beautiful beaches, more white sand, more turquoise water…… Wow.

Jervis Bay is stunning, what a great discovery – I will be back to those white sands as soon as I can.
