The weather is supreme, the wildlife is on show, and the beach is pristine, it's the perfect time to come out and play in Jervis Bay. I'm awash with sun-kissed rooms and nestled in a playful seaside town, lapped by the white sandy beaches of Jervis Bay. You can soak up the sunshine, sip up your spritzers, and witness amazing dawn skies, all on my sun-drenched deck overlooking the sparkling waters of the bay. A short 3 minute walk to the Vincentia Golf Club - 1.2km, Orion Beach is 450 metres a 1 minute walk.
Cool off in the glistening ocean or take a relaxing stroll through the bushwalks that are located very close by. Mid-week stays here make for magical, uncrowded stretches of sand, with less of the monopoly that the weekends bring about.
