One of the Shoalhaven’s secrets – Beecroft Peninsula May 2, 2017

One of the Shoalhaven’s secrets – Beecroft Peninsula

One of the best kept secrets in the Shoalhaven is the Beecroft Peninsula.  Beecroft Peninsula forms the northern entrance to Jervis Bay.  The Peninsula is owned by the Department of Defence, but as a general rule of thumb is open for public access on the weekends and school holidays.  The Peninsula has spectacular sea cliffs, scenic locations, beaches, bush walks and wildlife.  Point Perpendicular is a destination for rock climbers, but for those not inclined to hang off the side of a cliff, gives great views over Jervis Bay and whale spotting opportunities from shore.  The beaches have the stunning white sand that Jervis Bay is famous for, but without the crowds that some of the other beaches have.  You’ve also got great opportunities for bush walking and bird watching throughout the Peninsula.  One of the favourites is Honeymoon Bay (pictured right), but other great beaches include Long Beach and Target Beach.  If you are looking at fishing, check the details as it is part of the Jervis Bay Marine Park.  The entry to the Beecroft Peninsula is near Currarong and about 20 minutes from the Anchor Bay Motel.  To get more information on the Peninsula check out Beecroft Weapons Range and Peninsula, and or BOOK NOW to explore the Peninsula on a weekend get-away.


"Easy and friendly"

We picked this place at random to break our long drive. It was a great room, quite a good size with a small outdoor seating area. amenities were great, everything was there from coffee plunger and ground coffee to really soft towels. Wifi was really slow, but free. Owner was very friendly and helpful.

A lovely location and friendly welcome, rooms are nice and clean, very comfortable with thoughtful touches. Stayed twice and enjoyed both visits. I was travelling without my husband and this place was perfect.

"Always a pleasure staying here"

Third stay here and always a pleasure. It is by no means a Shangri-La but the motel is very clean, beds comfortable and a small kitchenette very useful. Rob was fantastic and helpful even upgrading my aged mother in laws room that was more user friendly for an older person. No hesitation recommending this motel in a this lovely peaceful...

"Repeat visits are essential"

We were made extremely welcome by the Hosts. The accommodation is in a superb position with easy waterside walks. The nearby (a car is necessary) Greenwell Point Bowling and Sports Club caters for all tastes. It was a delight to have the Australian Flag flying at the Anchor Bay Motel. Will stay longer next time.
