HYAMS BEACH: THE EXPERIENCE

As told by Jackie Te-Aroha

There’s disputes about which beach holds the title for the whitest sand in Australia; and a quick Google search will tell you it’s Hyams Beach in Jervis Bay. But, if you take the time to read a couple of reputable sources you’ll see that it’s actually just a myth. In saying this though the sand at Hyams is about as white as Sunblest bread with water so clear it’s almost transparent. So we can see why people still retell this myth til this day.

Hyams Beach is now very well known and its population increases from a little over 100 to 1000+ per day visitors and guests I’m summer. There’s limited number of car parks in town (max 500), one cafe and two public bathrooms so when it’s busy… It’s busy! That being said, if your looking for somewhere a little less crowded (and have arrived early) we know just the spot.

Driving past the main beach entrances to Hyams along Cyrus Street, take a left onto Lister Court – a narrow street with a 3-5 parking spaces on the right side. At the end of the street is an entrance to Jervis Bay National Park.

Walk past the first gate and follow it towards a second gate. Once you pass this point just continue walking in the direction of the water. There aren’t any signposts but its an easy stroll to a kind of steep tree root “staircase”.

These will lead you directly down to the sand a little further along the way from the crowd and if it’s still too close to people keep walking because Hyams stretches for abut 2.8km.
