Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What travellers are saying
- One of Australia's must-see beauty spots - unbelievably white sand & aquamarine water on a small and secluded beach. We've been here many times, including eating at the store when we could get in. Not this time, sadly. It must be hell for the locals in peak season.Written 20 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This a really popular park for families that is close to the centre of Huskisson, with very good toilet and picnicking facilities, including shelters and BBQs. Focus is on the adjoining lagoon; with its clean sand and shallow water it is a haven for young children and their parents. For the more adventurous there is a rock platform to explore and Huskisson Beach is just around the corner. For the really adventurous there is even a bridge to jump off (into the creek).Written 21 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This is perhaps my favourite beach on Jervis Bay (and it has some stiff competition). It is relatively small and protected, is surrounded by forest, and of course offers the famous Jervis Bay white sand in spades. Importantly to me at least, it is not as popular (ie crowded) as some of the other beaches in the area). While the beach is unpatrolled, there is usually no surf here, so it safer for non-swimmers and youngsters. There is also a small playground and picnic facilities above the beach and a small headland just below that for those who like to hop across some rocksWritten 21 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Beautiful whatever sand beach. Easy access from car park. No waves. Just a perfect spot don’t do Hymes beach for the whitest sand Murray’s beach is much better.Written 11 June 2023
- Greenfield Beach is another Jervis Bay gem. All the qualities that makes JB such a magical place are present here: the soft, white sand, crystal clear water, views across the bay and, looking back, to the forest surrounding the beach. There is even a good chance you will see spotting dolphins cavorting just offshore. And of course, its a lovely place to take a dip. There is a picnic area and a carpark that tends to fill fairly quickly, especially in peak season. We preferred to approach the beach via the White Sands Track, which was a very nice way to arrive (with some terrific bay views along the way). Not quite our favourite beach here - that was Blenheim. But there wasn't much in it.Written 21 January 2023
- A small walk to a beautiful safe beach for a swim. We had beautiful sets of waves rolling in and the family had an absolute blast. We didn’t want to leave. Some small cave area for the kids to explore or to get out of the hot summers day. Plenty of room to play a game of beach soccer, cricket or throw the frisbee. Highly recommend for couples or families. ❤️Written 21 January 2023
- Nelson Beach is along the coast only a few beaches before Hyams. In the Vincentia region. You have a very similar outlook to Hyams.
A medium size beach you descend from the road side. Soft white sand, clear blue water.
Perfect in the afternoon if you want a little shade. As the beaches aspect means you can get shade and sun.
No amenities.Written 4 April 2021
- Sand is so fine it squeaks when you walk on it, unspoilt area, in National Park, beach to yourself, rock pools and Kangaroos joining you on beachWritten 20 July 2022
- Our holiday house was right near Collingwood Beach, so we spent enjoyable afternoons chilling out with family here. The beach is 2kms long - so it was perfect for long walks along with comfy walkable sand. On maps, there's mention of Sailors Grave Beach to the north, and Spike Beach to the south, but this long stretch of sand is usually collectively referred to as Collingwood Beach.
Our stay was in June before the schools broke up, so we frequently had the whole beach to ourselves - except for the odd beach-fisherman and jogger. The beach was wide enough for us to enjoy beach tennis and throwing the footie. We also kayaked and swam out from Collingwood Beach.
We brought along fold-up chairs to just sit and enjoy the view. You get lovely vistas looking south and out to Plantation Point, and also across to Point Perpendicular. We were fascinated and amazed by the groups of birds that would fly over in the formation of a V, then they'd change positions to form two Vs, then back to one again. This is nature at its best!
Another activity that we were able to enjoy was the excellent bike/walk track that links Huskisson to Hyams Beach. We jumped on the track at Collingwood Beach, and enjoyed a walk over to Plantation Point, passing the smaller beaches of Orion and Barfleur along the way.
Dogs aren't allowed on Collingwood Beach, however, they are allowed on the bike/walk track - as long as they're on leads. There's public toilets located at the southern end along the bike track near Holden Street. And it might be worth mentioning that we spotted a large pod of playful dolphins very close to Collingwood Beach while cruising out on Jervis Bay.
It's a good beach for all ages to enjoy, with lots of opportunities for kids to collect some lovely seashells while enjoying the crystal-clean calm surf. We left here with some lovely memories :) See attached photos.Written 8 July 2021
- This is one of the very few beaches in the area that you are allowed to take your dog on. And then with certain restrictions. Until 3pm the dog has to be on a lead and only after 3pm can the dog run free. Sandy beach with good parking.Written 29 April 2019
