Chinamans Beach in Jervis Bay National Park is one of the NSW South Coast’s hidden gems. Located 3 hours' drive from Sydney, this idyllic spot adjoins the popular Hyams Beach, Greenfield Beach and Jervis Bay Marine Park.

With its glistening turquoise waters and clear white sand, Chinamans Beach is a pristine paradise for a memorable beach wedding. The beach is secluded so you'll feel worlds away, but you'll still be only a short walk from all your necessities.

Say your vows to the sound of the rolling surf before taking your wedding photos with the outstanding natural beauty of the ocean as your backdrop. After your ceremony, your guests can kick off their shoes and go a stroll along the water's edge or enjoy a refreshing swim.
