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.


"Great place to stay"

Nice people & clean rooms in a good spot. The upstairs rooms have a view so we paid the extra & it was worth it. There was a balcony to sit out on & we were given lots of helpful info on great beaches to visit. Would stay there again. Rod D

"“Third visit”"

Well each of the three times I have stayed at this lovely little motel I have been asleep 3 hours before the smile has faded from my face. The beds are comfortable, air conditioning is perfect room is clean. Best of all the rates are very reasonable, thanks are to hosts Rob and Helen hope to see you guys again...

"“Relaxing and ideal for the weekend getaway”"

I have stayed at the Anchor Bay twice now, it is convenient and away from suburbia of Nowra and is right on the water at Greenwell Point. The rooms are always tidy, smelling fresh with very clean linen and blankets (I liked the low setting on the electric blanket - just enough for my aching back) and the coffee tea facilities well appointed. It is a must to walk along the walkway from the jetty to the end and back before breakfast. The fresh sea breeze and brisk walk does you the world of good. The manager is always polite, courteous and ever helpful with our needs. The jetty and boat ramp are great for pictures and looking back on Coolongata Mountain at Shoalhaven. The free picnic BBQ and tables are an added bonus across the road with a great Fish & Chip shop on the corner. We will be back again, for sure.

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.
