Discover dolphins, sparkling blue waters and some of the whitest sands in the world in this glorious part of the Shoalhaven region on the NSW South Coast. Vincentia is a charming seaside town on the shores of the spectacular Jervis Bay Marine Park.
Stretching from Huskisson in the north to Hyams Beach in the south, 6.5km of white sand beaches stretch along the foreshore of Vincentia. Blenheim Beach is a great snorkelling spot, and there’s a nearby reserve with a playground and picnic area. Orion Beach is one of Vincentia’s best-kept secrets.
A great way to experience the area’s natural beauty is on the White Sands Walk, which begins at the Greenfield Beach picnic area. The walk finishes at the incredible Hyams Beach. To return to Greenfield Beach, take the Scribbly Gum track through tall forest and woodland. The easy 2.5km loop takes about one hour.
If you’re after some adventurous exploits, go sailing, experience the thrill of kiteboarding or explore an amazing underwater world with Crest Diving. The marine park is a wonderland of bottlenose dolphins, little penguins, fur seals, sea dragons, colourful fish and migrating whales.
You can rent a bicycle from Jervis Bay Bike Hire and explore natural attractions along the foreshore on the many bike paths. Golfers will appreciate the views from The Country Club, which also has a bistro, restaurant, bar and cafe. At the Bay and Basin Leisure Centre there is an indoor water slide perfect for kids.
