Whether you’ve visited many times, or if it’s your first time, the Shoalhaven 100 Beach Challenge is the perfect way to ensure you get the most out of the region’s 170k coastline.

Participating in the Shoalhaven 100 Beach Challenge is easy.

For the tech-savvy, log onto the website [100beachchallenge.com] via an email address or social media account and navigate to the checkpoint of your chosen beach. When you’re 500 metres away, the camera on your smart phone or device will launch. Snap a pic and share it on Facebook and Instagram with the #100beachchallenge, check the beach off your list, and head to the next one. To add to the fun, the Leaderboard section of the website will show you whether you’re on your way to being the top scorer!

If you’re old-school and the trusty map is more your style, grab a copy of the 100 Beach Challenge in the 2017 Shoalhaven Tourism Visitors Guide, or download it here.

To help find the Shoalhaven beaches that best suit you and your travel companions, there are ten categories: Best for Families, Best Picnic Spots, Secret Beaches, 24hr Pet Friendly, Best Bush to Beach, Best for Walking, Whitest Sand, Camping by the Beach, Best Instagram Spots, and Surfing.

Shoalhaven Tourism Manager, Ms. Coralie Bell says the 100 Beach Challenge has already attracted a large following due to interactivity and simplicity.

“We’re thrilled with the response we’ve had so far to the Shoalhaven 100 Beach Challenge. We’re proud to have so many amazing beach spots here so we wanted to make it easy for everyone who visits the region to be aware of and experience all we have to offer, especially those that are hidden secrets.

She continues: “We’re encouraging people to use the hashtag #100beachchallenge when posting their beach images on Facebook and Instagram. Then everyone can see the beauty of the Shoalhaven’s beaches which truly offer sand and sea for everyone.”
