We stopped today and made a short break on this beautiful beach on our way to Sydney. The weather was not really good so we couldn't swim, but enjoyed 30-40min on the pretty white sand and played with my little daughter. The beach was very empty and almost no people were there at that time so the pleasure was even... More

The colourful water washing up to the whitest sand beach is beautiful,like a postcard. The beach goes on forever . Unfortunately this is a fairly busy Beach and the parking lot is very small. Go early if you want to Park close to the beach or you'll have to walk a bit of a distance. Great place to fly kites... More

This is another beautiful beach down the south coast of NSW. Nearly white sand so keep your sunnies on. Great for walking and swimming.

We just spent a few days in Jervis Bay area and spent time at each of the beaches. We are blessed in Australia to have so many beautiful beaches, particularly along the coast of NSW. I always laugh at the annual TA awards, for best beaches in the world, some look very ordinary and yet our beaches seldom get a... More

Take me away to Jervis Bay!🏝This is actually a cart wheel gone somewhat wrong, but that won't dampen my energetic spirit!😊because I'm on #hyamsbeach 🌊One of the most beautiful beaches in the world and only 3hrs south of Sydney🌏Photos really don't do it justice and yes.. the sand really is that white!😝 @mybondisummer #mybondisummer

We visited Jervis Bay in March, and enjoyed more Murray beach than Hyams. Sand is white for sure, but not the cleanest. Not really a paradise like you can find in southern Pacific islands like New Caledonia.

I have been to White Haven Beach on the Great Barrier Reef and to many beaches in Tahiti but Hyams Beach in Jervis Bay NSW Australia has the whitest sand on earth and with the bay being protected as a National Park is very clean. Dolphins and Whales play in the bay so it is worth the trip and a... More

The beach is rumored to have the whitest sand in the world. And the sand is so soft it squeaks under your feet. It certainly is white and it really does squeak. The beach itself is pleasant but off the beaten path with very limited parking and very limited amenities.

This beach looks quite nice but there is no parking. The day we were here was not even that nice a day and still heaps of people here and not enough parking spaces. Would hate to see it on a hot weekend or summer school holidays. The sand is lovely white sand but the little creek running onto the beach... More

If you want to experience a pristine, beautiful beach look no further. I have just spent 4 days @ Jervis Bay & the highlight was swimming at this beach.
