The Whitest Beach in the World

….is Hyams Beach, New South Wales, Australia, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.

Hyams Beach, with its blinding white sand, is a small village roughly 3 hours drive from Sydney, on the southern shores of Jervis Bay.  The sand has fine particles of quartz, which gives it a beautiful shimmering luster.

Amazing, eh?  It looks like someone dumped a whole lotta flour, or talc.  I wonder if it’s as soft.

you need your sunglasses for this beach!

If you and your loved one are in the area,  Hyams Beach Seaside Cottages offers private cottages  and getaway packages for couples.
