The Whitest Sands in the World – Hyams Beach

If you google “the whitest sand in the world” Hyams Beach is the location that pops up. This lovely beach is located in my hometown of Jervis Bay, and holds the Guinness World Record for the whitest sand in the world. While I was at home my mum and I did the bush/beach walk between Greenfields Beach, along Chinamans Beach, through to Hyams. Being a chilly winters day, the clouds stopped the sun enhancing the brilliant white of the sand, so my pictures don’t do it justice, but you can see the potential in a few.

The water was clear and looked extremely inviting, but I just couldn’t bear taking off even one layer of clothing, let alone stripping down and plunging into the icy water. Seriously – I had about 20 layers of clothing on. I felt like the Michelin Man.

Hyams Beach is about 2 hours south of Sydney, and is definitely worth the trip if you’re looking for a beautiful beach without the overwhelming crowds that Bondi brings (ps: Bondi sucks, go to Jervis Bay, haha).

  1. I can see why this takes the cake for the whitest sand in the world. These photos are beautiful and the clouds in the sky make it look like one of those photos that come as background options for a new computer.
    Have you ventured here before? Or knew this was in your home town? I feel like I am constantly finding out new facts about my home town and places to go that tourist head to…that I never even knew existed.

    • Haha, i totally knew it was there; my friends and I used to skip school and swim there all day! I think I just appreciate it more now I’ve seen other places.
      I know what you mean though; there’s still so many places I need to see that were right on my doorstep!
