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.


"Will be back"

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.

"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

"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.

"“A night in paradise”"

What a lovely place Greenwell Point is! Very peaceful with stunning views over the water within seconds of this accomodation. (Nice view from room also) The host could not have been more pleasant or helpful, and was willing to do anything to ensure we had a good stay. The choice of eateries in winter seem limited so we knocked something up in our room, using the adequate kitchenete facilities. Very comfortable room and a very enjoyable stay.

"“Extremely Comfortable”"

We were extremely pleased with our accommodation. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It isn't luxury but it isn't a luxury price. The host could not have been more helpful or pleasant, even helping with our luggage. We stayed in the access room and found it very pleasant. The kitchen is small but functional and the beds were super comfortable. I would doubt you could better the cleanliness and comfort for the price. Highly recommended.
