Beautiful scenery is one of the many things that the NSW South Coast Jervis Bay is well-known. Jervis Bay boasts some of the amazing stretches of the white sand beaches.

Here’s a few beautiful beaches you should be able to enjoy:
Hyams Beach has one of the most picturesque shorelines in NSW. The white sand and turquoise water cover this expansive beach, making it the ideal spot to chilax on a beach towel or walk along the magic shoreline. Swimming, snorkelling and photography are very popular at Hyams Beach.
Greenfield Beach is another of Jervis Bay’s best and pristine beaches. It is adjoined by a popular picnic area and is a popular spot for families and groups. There is parking area close to the picnic area to enjoy that weekend barbecue, and of course, an open and stunning beach. Snorkelling and swimming are popular in clear waters. Greenfields Beach is also a part of White Sands Walk.
Cave Beach is on the southern side of Booderee National Park. There is often good surf conditions, so the nearby campground attracts keen surfers and families who like the choice of the various surf and bay beaches that Booderee National Park offers. It is also a fantastic spot to camp to see some of the native Australian wildlife.
Murrays Beach is another favourite for families and boaties alike. Within Booderee National Park, Murrays Beach is sometimes referred to as one of the park’s “gems.” Here you can partake in excellent snorkelling, plenty of varied walks, and if you’re lucky, you might receive a visit from one of the local wallabies. At Murrays Beach you’ll find a boat ramp as well, making it a top spot to head out for a day on the open water.
Always a family favourite, Green Patch is a very safe beach with excellent facilities for families and campers. A great place to spend the day, take a picnic or use one of the gas barbecues to cook your lunch. There are some short walks which are perfect for younger visitors and the water is great for those learning to snorkel.
Around the rock platforms you’re likely to spot octopus, squid and lots of fish. See if you can spot some of the other regular visitors like wallabies, lorikeets and echidnas.

Taking coastal walks is a great way to experience the different beaches around the bay and be sure to bring your swimming costumes so you can take advantage of the clear turquoise water.
