What a beautiful beach.....stunning location, crystal clear waters, perfect spot for safe swimming and relaxing. Amazingly it is said there are over 4000 shells per square metre...whilst you can’t remove any, take the time to soak up some sunshine and enjoy!

This place wouldn't have left us with the same impression if it wasn't for the great interpretive signage along the tracks. The sea was cold and salty. Footwear is needed. Many people had their folding chairs there to sit and stay longer shelly beachside. The...More

What a beautiful beach. Although we had been expecting larger shells after the reading the literature we were very impressed with the beach and the lovely walk down.

This is a pretty beach and I was determined to stop and see it after photos I had seen. Unfortunately we were travelling with dogs and they weren't permitted on the beach. Dogs were permitted in the car park on a lead but there were...More

We stopped on our way to Denham in the afternoon and it felt like there were more flies than shells at this beach! But obviously that changes with weather, etc. Taking the flies out of the equation - it’s interesting for about 5 minutes and...More

We were amazed at the millions of shells adorning the beach that stretched for kilometres. It was also incredibly white and brilliant. One thing though, wear thongs as the shells are annoyingly sharp

This beach which goes for kilometers is made up of shells many metres deep, the amazing thing is every shell is only about one centimetre,What a truely spectacular place and is a must stop for all.

This place is very pretty but is essentially just another beach, except replace the sand with crushed shells. I wouldn't make a trip just to see this beach.

This beach is absolutely beautiful and a good place to stop and relax for the day. The water is crystal clear and the views are incredible. My only suggestion is do not use the bathrooms - they are absolutely filthy and feral.

This is a lovely beach- truly spectacular to see all the tiny shells- a shell hunters dream! We didn’t swim here but apparently it is very salty. Having said that there were some families having a dip and a great laugh with it. Definitely worth...More

Define hot? Depends if you live in the Sahara desert or Alaska as to what you class as hot. Best time of year to visit Shark Bay is April to September. Anything outside that will either be windy as hell, or hot as hadies.
