Callala Bay

A corner of calm

Fringed by powder white sand and tranquil blue water, Callala Bay is an ocean lover’s delight. Tucked into the northern end of Jervis Bay on the NSW South Coast, this relaxed coastal village offers calm swimming, snorkelling, fishing, boating and kayaking, as well as bushwalking and dolphin parades.
