We all know there is a special day coming up next week on the 14th February, but you don’t have to wait until Valentine’s Day to get romantic. Why not organise a romantic escape to Jervis Bay to your own private holiday cottage surrounded by native bushland in peace and tranquility.

If you’re looking for some inspiration we have come up with some romantic things to do in the Shoalhaven.

Take a stroll on the White Sand’s Walk

The White Sands Walk is a mesmerising trail in the Jervis Bay National Park on some of the whitest sands in the world. There’s plenty of bush and trees that provide privacy and intimacy and make you feel like the only two people on earth. As you go, keep your eye out for wildlife sightings and glimpses of the aquamarine seas.

The walk begins at Greenfield Beach picnic area in Vincentia, a short drive south of Huskisson on Jervis Bay. You’ll pass a series of gorgeous beaches including Chinamans, Seamans and Hyams beaches, with easy-to-follow directions telling you about the native flora and fauna.

Visit some of the Shoalhaven’s finest Wineries

Take your time and venture a bit out of the Jervis Bay area and into the Shoalhaven where wineries abound for some wine tasting. Pop into places like Two Figs and Coolangatta Estate to sample some fine local wines.

Take a stroll through the grapevines and grounds of the wineries and enjoy fresh local produce at Coolangatta Estate restaurant. Don’t forget to purchase a bottle or two of your favourite vino to take back to your holiday cottage.

Enjoy a romantic picnic for two on Hyams Beach

The perfect way to indulge that extra special person in your life is with a picnic hamper on Hyams Beach in Jervis Bay. A picnic hamper from Hyams Beach Hampers showcases some of the South Coast’s best produce on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Perfect for enjoying with that special someone on a picnic rug on the sand or under a Beach Hut!

Dinner and then a show or movie

A classic date night with a romantic dinner for two, followed by a show or movie is always a winner in the romance department. Check our dining guide for some suggestions of where to dine and then book your tickets for a show at the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre in Nowra. Or take in a movie at the local Huskisson Pictures, a quaint and cosy space with a rich history that dates back to 1913.
