On the southern shores of the splendid Jervis Bay Marine Park, Hyams Beach is a charming seaside village in the Shoalhaven region with an eponymous stretch of fine white sand.

The waters are perfect for swimming, snorkelling, fishing and stand-up paddleboarding. Other wonderful things to do include the Hyams Beach trail, also known as the bird spotter’s walk. Keep a look out for colourful rosellas. The walk in the Jervis Bay National Park begins at the beach’s southern end.
