Callala Beach is a small village on the northern side of Jervis Bay with a total permanent population of around 700. This swells to around three times as many when the many holiday cottages are occupied during peak season. There is a local store which has the only Post Office and only petrol in the area and which also provides newspapers, coffee and sandwiches. An Italian restaurant and a Fish and Chip shop complete the mini shopping centre on the corner of Parkes Crescent and Quay Rd.
Public toilets are available at the beach end of Callala Beach Rd and Centre St.
The Callala RSL Country Club provides the usual licensed club facilities including the Miam Bistro Restaurant, a bowling green and a nine hole golf course - www.callalarsl.com.au).
