If travelling on into or from Monkey Mia this beach is well worth a stop and visit. Car parking is just a short walk away and the location offers wonderful views.

Shelly beach is stunning and so tranquil. From afar, it looks just like a normal sandy beach but once you step on it, the crunch of the shells is audible. It was very windy the day we stopped here but that didn’t detract from the...More

These little shells make up the beach and are beautiful. A lot of ppl swimming but I thought it was a little chilly but at a warmer time it would be a top spot for a dip!

Worth the deviation off the main road - a beach of tiny shells, turquoise water and some interesting history.

We had a lovely walk along the beach, as it was winter we didn’t swim. It is en-route to Denham and Monkey Mia so an easily detour for a couple of hours. An idyllic spot

You have to see it to believe it. Cockle shells, cockle shells all in a row. Yes, millions of shells like you have never seen before. Make sure you call in when you see the sign to Shell Beach.

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.
