Full of flies! Immediately swamped by flies once we got the car and they will stick to you all the way!!! Absolutely not worth it.

It was a perfect place to stop and take a walk. The shells were amazing. Be sure to dig a little to experience the depth.

Shell beach is stunning and so unusual. It is well worth a visit and walk around. It was a lovely, easy walk from the carpark to the beach with informative boards about the flora and fauna as well as about the beach itself.

Pure white beach as far as can be seen made completely of tiny shells, the water is crystal clear and we saw people out hundreds of metres and still only up to their knees deep, absolutely mind blowing

Schould stop there. It is very beautiful so recommended. It is maybe 5-10 minutes walk from parking. But you decide how long you will walk.

Enjoy the stroll along pristine water It is likely to be windy but you will take cover next to a bush and admire mother nature Enjoy

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.
