Does the idea of crystal clear waters and talcum soft beach sand fit your ideal dream getaway? Well, you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars jetting off to the Maldives or Seychelles to revel in such delights. Hyams Beach located along the beautiful shores of Jervis Bay is just the place you’re looking for.
Tourist attractions to see
Hyams Beach isn’t just a picturesque place to spend a lazy afternoon. It’s actually a seaside village that affords you an opportunity to detox from city life and enjoy the perks of being in a refreshing environment. Currently with a population of less than 200 people, you can truly take in the sights and sounds at your own pace without feeling rushed.
Jervis Bay National Park
If you’re planning on spending a day out then don’t forget to visit Jervis Bay National Park located just north of Hyams Beach. Grab some food from the popular Hyams Beach Café and enjoy a picnic on the beach before heading out to the National Park. Enjoy the Hyams Beach trail after lunch. During summer you can swim, snorkel, dive and surf to your heart’s content. In winter, you can go humpback whale watching.
Booderee National Park and Botanic Gardens
Another national park worth seeing is Booderee. Discover and learn more about the indigenous plants that are native to this part of the country. See rare animals and beautiful birds. You’ll find the highest sea cliffs in New South Wales located in this park. Additionally, the Cape St George Lighthouse ruin makes an excellent stop for thrill seekers.
Jervis Bay Marine Park
Jervis Bay Marine Park is home to scores of protected flora and fauna making it a truly spectacular place to visit. Its winding trails and enchanting forests are equally worth the visit. The turquoise blue waters at the park are a scuba diver or snorkeler’s dream come true. Consider yourself a bit of a daredevil? Then how about taking a swim tour with humpback whales? The best times to engage in this activity are between April and July, and mid-August to November.
Hyams Beach remains popular for a reason. If you’re ever in the area do plan to check out these three sites.
