Jervis Bay; home to the Word's Number ONE Whitest Sand Beach - Hyams... AND nope, we're not just throwing that out there all willy nilly - it's no word of a lie, holding top spot in the World Record Books.
While we do hold this fun little fact close to our hearts and love the bragging rights it gives us locals here in Jervis Bay, we also like to think our less "famous" beaches are some of Australia's best kept secrets, with their sparkling white sand, turquoise waters and surrounded by the ever so picturesque Booderee National Park.
So we are here to spill the beans on the Bays best kept secrets. Starting with the top end, North of Currambene Creek - that's Callala Bay Side for those not in the know.
Sooo get your bathers on, tie your adventure shoes tight and prepare to relax, swim and explore, because these little beauties are ready and waiting.
Target Beach is known for great fishing and good swimming during north easterly winds, with its sheltered beach. It's the perfect reward after the little scenic trek you must take to discover it. Located off of the Beecroft Peninsula at the northern top end of Jervis Bay, you can reach this piece of paradise by foot on a 4 kilometer walk (return).
If you're looking for the perfect beach to spend a whole day then this is it. Honeymoon Bay has ample shade, safe shallow and sheltered waters for the kids, rocks to climb and a favorite for casting a line. This gem is surrounded by bush land with frequenting wildlife and amenities close by. Its an exciting drive, located 10km down the beaten track off of Point Perpendicular Road. Bare in mind when planing a trip to Honey Moon Bay, this area is closed to the public Mon - Fri for Defence Force Exercises, out of holiday season.
If you're looking for a secluded beach, jetty, white sand, turquoise water and scenic bush views then this beach ticks all the boxes! Like Honeymoon Bay, this beach is only open to the public during school holidays and weekends.
Long Beach is 2 kilometers of sheltered white sand, calm turquoise water and perfect views. If you're looking for a beach that is fairly protected from those coastal winds and will make you feel like you're in paradise, then this my friends is it.
