For a romantic beachside getaway, look no further: these seven secluded cottages, exclusively for adults, have front-row seats to one of the most picturesque beaches on the east coast of Australia.

Originally built as fishermen cabins in the 1920s, today you’ll find charming pastel-coloured one-bedroom abodes, each with their own ensuite bathroom, electric log fire place and double French doors that open out onto a private verandah.

Just across the way is Hyams Beach, famed for having some of the whitest sand in the world – ideal for snorkelling, kayaking or, let’s be honest, just lazing around.

For a laid-back brunch by the sea, Hyams Beach Café is a short stroll from the cottages.

From $190 per night (low season); $230 per night (high season). Sleeps two.
