With over 100 kilometers of rolling white sand coastline, it is home to an array of protected coves, stunning sea cliffs, and serene Australian bushland. Jervis Bay is one of the best places to visit in New South Wales and possibly all of Australia.

It is home to some of the world’s whitest sands on beaches that among Australia’s best. Hyams Beach, known for having some of the whitest sand in the world, is probably the most famous.
