The Huskisson and Jervis Bay area has many beautiful beaches that you can explore.
The focus at Huskisson is more on the busy harbour, the headland and the foreshore. On the eastern side of the headland is Shark Net Beach, and then further to the south is the mouth of Moona Moona creek which is a haven for families and kids, especially at low tide.
If you take the ferry across to Myola you can almost have the beach to yourself or take the kids for a swim at the mouth of the creek where it provides shallow water and shelter from any breeze.
There are plenty of walks to do around the Huskisson and Jervis Bay area - either along the waterfront, at Hyams Beach, or inside Booderee National Park.
The Huskisson to Vincentia cycleway is also a great way to spend your mornings, as the sun is rising over the bay take a stroll along this gorgeous stretch of coast.
