If your energetic walk up to the boulders at the end off the beach on a clear day absolutely stunning clear water feels like your on a secluded island

A really long Beach inside the heads at Hawksnest. Suitable for all ages and fun for all. No facilities so be prepared.

Family friendly Jimmy's Beach, good fishing too. Very pretty view looking onto Port Stephens. Fine white sand beach

The beach was very clean. The best thing for us was the off leash dog areas either side of the main patrolled beach. Not a lot of shade but absolutely beautiful water and sand.

Nice and quite, not many people. Little parking place though, and we didn't find a toilet. But we did see dolphins swimming close to beach which is really nice.

Lovely beach you are able to swim in this one no real big waves so no suffers here. Beach is not manned though.

We stayed at Jimmy's Beach caravan park for the first time over the Summer of 16/17. The local beach is a great spot for young swimmers with a sand park at the main carpark/entry point. Would recommend for young families and not so strong swimmers....More

Find a covered seating area, watch the boats and the Nelson Bay Ferry, eat the best ever fish n chips. What a lovely place our in-law family have retired to. Make it a 'must do' on your travels folks.
