The incredible New South Wales beach you have to visit... 

Do you love beautiful beaches and water so perfect, you kind of just have to stand there for a while and let your mind process how beautiful it is? I can’t imagine many of you said no. If you did say no, you better pack up your belongings and exit this piece of internet forever, because things are about to get very beachy and very beautiful.

As a loyal, proud Queenslander I had always boasted about how incredible the beaches in my home state are. There is no way I thought New South Wales could put up even one beach that would come close to some of my favourite spots at home. Turns out, New South Wales has been sitting on one hell of a secret… they have themselves one of the most incredible beaches I’ve ever visited and you can find it at Jervis Bay.

It takes about 2 hours 45 minutes to get to Jervis Bay from Sydney, slightly less from Canberra. If you find yourself staying in Berry, it’s well worth the hour or so drive south to get there. You’ll find the drive nice and easy, taking you through local towns and bushland before opening up to one of the most beautiful beaches in Australia.

Jervis Bay is incredible. It’s home to sand so white, you can’t quite believe it’s real. The white sand sets off perfectly against the sparkling, brilliant blue water of the ocean. Together with the gorgeous warm sunshine overhead, it becomes a haven and the kind of place you can easily see yourself spending a few days, or even a week, just relaxing, swimming and napping.

Two popular beaches are Hyams Beach and Seven Mile Beach, but after a tip from a Berry local we decided to check out Chinamans Beach instead. The tip was right. We found ourselves on a beautiful, relatively secluded corner of the Bay, with views out to Bowen Island and the Headland. The Bay is protected from gusty winds, so the water roll into shore gently, making it the perfect spot to paddle around and just… be happy.

I can’t recommend visiting Jervis Bay and Chinamans Beach highly enough. We only had an hour or so to spend and I really wish it could have been longer. The perfect white sand was so soft and welcoming, the cool water perfect for a dip. I could easily have seen myself spending a long time here with a good book. If you’re planning a trip to Sydney, Canberra or somewhere else nearby, make sure you work Jervis Bay into your trip. It’s amazing!

We found the beach quite easily, following the signs to Hyams Beach that led us into town, then turning left and following the road to the end. There we found a spot surrounded by bushland, with places to park. A set of stairs led us down to the beach.

There are plenty of holiday-homes available for rent, so I’d recommend you jump online and find one you love and settle in for a few days or a week of seaside rest and relaxation. The town is home to great cafe’s and restaurants and you can always take a day-trip to places like Berry, if you feel like it. Other things to do in the area include snorkelling and diving, kayaking and stand-up paddle-boarding as well as dolphin and whale-watching cruises.
