Hammerhead Point picnic area is located just a short walk from Warrain Beach.
Grab a table or spread your blanket on the grass. You can enjoy your sandwiches while nicely sheltered from the elements, thanks to a small sand dune that acts as a windbreak between the beach and the picnic spot.
After a picnic lunch, sit back and relax or enjoy a stroll on the beach. The beach here opens to magnificent reef within the Hammerhead sanctuary zone, part of the Jervis Bay Marine Park. Bring your snorkelling or diving gear for a real treat – there’s a huge array of marine life including dolphins, octopus and stingrays. Bring your binoculars if you're visiting in the winter - Hammerhead Point is a great whale watching spot.
