Things to do
Hyams Beach, Jervis Bay
Hyams Beach offers beautiful views towards Point Perpendicular, Bowen Island and the Navy base at HMAS Creswell. It is a beautiful beach for swimming, snorkelling and long beach walks. Like all beaches in the bay, it is unpatrolled. At the north end of the wide two-kilometre shoreline is a rock platform with its sandy beach - and a top snorkelling spot. There is very limited parking in Hyams Beach village and as a result, is often parked out in busy periods so as an alternative it is recommended to park at Greenfield Beach and taking the stunning White Sands Walk to Hyams this way you will get to see more of the area including Chinamans Beach.
