White Sand Beaches around Sydney

The White sand beaches are just 2-3 hours south of Sydney. They are considered to have the whitest sands in Australia. The region is called Shoalhaven Heads. They a large number of white sand beaches with break taking beauty at its best. Each one of them listed here are unique in its own way. The water in this region, especially in some beaches is very quiet and safe (some of them literally have no waves).

Jervis Bay – One of the best in the region, you can stay in cabins right next to the sea. It is riddled with small and beautiful inlets of water where (if lucky, but most time) have a beach all for yourself and your family. As all other beaches has clear blue water and white sand.

Cave Beach – A small beach that has a huge cave, nothing more. But sometimes there is no one here you’ll end up having the beach for yourself.

Pebbly Beach – Another beautiful beach with a twist, you can camp right by the seaside here. To add to that you will see hundreds of Kangaroos hoping right by you. If you are planning to camp here, better book in advance but book here.

There are so many beaches in this area like Callala Beach, 7 miles beach, Hyams beach and more beaches in the Huskisson area. Most of these beaches offer Whale watching, dolphin watching or diving with seals, yes diving with seals. A good way to enjoy a holiday, huh!

Hi,

Thanks a lot for the tips. You've covered Sydney beautifully well. This is our first visit outside India and we are quite apprehensive about our choice of place. Looks like we have made the right decision. We are travelling in April. Plan to follow your tips to a tee. Thanks again.
