very different with a great view (even though we were nearly blown away). I think it is worth a visit either while driving into or leaving the area. If it is just to see the beach you only need 15-30 minutes. You can swim there ( very salty with more buoyancy) but they say you will be covered with salt.... More

Shell Beach truly lives up to its name. It is a beach layered by seashells as far as the eye can see. You have to see it to believe! Besides the dolphins at Monkey Mia, this is another must do when in Denham / Monkey Mia.

Seeing is believing and this is a must see!! The whole of the huge beach consists of the smallest of shells. It is quite spectacular and unbelievable. Look out for the buildings in Denham built from "blocks" of these shells. St. Andrews church is a case in point. I understand that this in only one of two beaches like this... More

The beach was compacted white shells and the sea water shallow and crystal clear. Lying in it, tiny fish swim all around. Well worth the experience.

Stopped off here and found we were the only ones there. Unusual beach and beautiful clear water. Worth just stopping off to see even if you don't have time to stay.

This is one of the nice places in Denham. It is just 65 KM away from Denham. We had a plan to visit shell beach and hamelin pool all together and if we have time then visit to some lookouts and bluffs on the way. It was my first experience to visit such place. There is no sand at all... More
