Feel like you should get yourself acquainted with those whiter-than-white sands? It'd be rude not to. Hyams Beach vacation rentals are all about getting in some quality time down by the ocean. Surfing, kayaking and paddleboarding are all big round here, and if you fancy venturing out a bit further then these waters are also famous for their dolphin- and whale-watching cruises.

Weather

Local weather for your stay in Hyams Beach holiday rentals

There's no bad season for Hyams Beach vacation rentals. Summers can get pretty hot, but fortunately the coastal location means you've got fresh ocean breezes (and occasional thunderstorms) to take the edge off things. Even in winter, it still never really gets cold at Hyams Beach, and low season can be a good bet if you're looking to hike in the national parks or get a bit more of that famous white sand to yourself. If you're in town with whales on your mind, then the migration season is June to October, making it the best time for a whale-watching cruise.

Natural highlights

They really ought to spell it New South Whales

Hyams Beach is set on idyllic Jervis Bay, on the coast of New South Wales. The South Pacific ocean round here is dolphin central, and Flipper and his mates love to frolic in Jervis Bay almost as much as the beachgoers. It's also a top spot for whale-watchers, with humpbacks and southern right whales passing through during the migration. Even the landscapes round here like to be that bit grander than the competition. It's home to some of the tallest sea cliffs on the east coast, and much of the area is protected by national and marine parks.
