We went quite recently but unfortunately due to the cyclone the flies were hard to content with. Lovely views and something I've never experienced before. A welcomed stop on our way to Monkey Mia

This shell beach is unique and has to be seen to be believed. It is not far off the roaf on the way to Denham and is worth the stop. Wear a fly net for comfort. There is a drop dunny toilet for your convenience.

Just a simple stop, no amenities except for a toilet, but you must stop in! A STUNNING beach made of shells, warm crystal clear turquoise water as flat as a swimming pool.

The shells are certainly tiny but was a nice little walk along the water. Buy a fly net as the massive flies spoil your outing.

If you are in the area of Shell Beach it is worth a stop off as you can marvel at the shear quantity of cockle shells that led to the development of this beach. We did see Emu's near a compound as well.....
