Seven Mile Beach

Top choice in South Coast NSW

This superlative crescent of sand, stretching south from Gerroa to Shoalhaven Heads, is one of the South Coast's most memorable beaches thanks to its pale-golden sand and sheer size. Gazetted as a national park, Seven Mile Beach has picnic areas, shaded walking tracks and kilometres of bright foam lashing the shore, making it almost impossible not to kick off your shoes and jump in.
