Nelson is one of the quieter beaches in Jervis Bay's White Sands Coast. It has spectacular white sand and often has enough room to spread out with the family, as well as gentle waves for swimming and paddling. The beach runs from Plantation Point reserve in the north to Blenheim Beach in the south.
Walkers can head north to Huskisson on the Round the Bay Walk, a wide, sealed, shared pathway, or continue south to Greenfield and Jervis Bay National Park on the White Sands Walk. Plantation Point has excellent barbecues, picnic tables, children's playground, fitness equipment and grassy lawns perfect for a relaxing picnic or rest on your walk.
