What can we do?
The smell of the ocean – The sound of waves breaking – the feel of sand between your toes – There’s nothing quite like the beach! Swim, walk the beaches and national parks, read, sleep in, explore the south coast by car or bicycle, eat… relax! No driving to the beach, no carrying bags – just a towel and sunglasses and in 10 seconds you are in the surf.
On Denhams is a rare haven away from the stress of modern living. It is hard not to relax while watching the ocean on the sunlounges on the enormous deck – or from the comfortable living area with its bifold doors to the ocean breezes. At night enjoy the sounds of the ocean and the canopy of stars.
The south coast of NSW is very picturesque for short and long drives to small towns and communities up and down the coast. The area offers a number of tourist attractions from nature parks and Mogo Zoo to plenty of opportunities for exploring by car, walking and by boat. Lots of activities are online and include everything from tourist attractions, bushwalking and bicycle paths. There are great restaurants and cafes in Batemans Bay including a degustation experience with Japanese and French cuisine.
All sports are available from golf courses to kayaking. You can hire a boat or a houseboat for the day, go fishing, watch whales (in season) but most days the dolphins are in the ocean in front of your apartment.
From June 2022 you will enjoy the new Batemans Bay Pavilions – indoor swimming and a theatre. So you can swim 12 months of the year and attend a show a short drive from On Denhams.
