Stopped here twice in way in and out of Denham with the whole clan but mainly for my shell obsessed 11 y.o. Bizarre to sit in a beach of intact white shells and not just shells ground into sand like normal. Worth looking around and just examining these shells.

Interesting and beautiful display of remote natural phenomena, amazing colours and textures , not much in the way of wildlife.

I have never seen so many shells. Rolling hills of shells as far as the eye can see. Loved it and well worth the visit,

Don't miss this natural attraction. Very well laid out information boards. Beautify place to stop off and spend some time learning about the area.

This is really something worth looking at...... Particularly when the shell quarry blocks are still evident in buildings in Denham.

Shell Beach is a lovely, serene stretch of beach with great photo opportunities looking out to see or back to shore. You can walk along the beach for some distance or 'out to sea' as it is quite shallow water for some distance. Worth a stop.

Always worth a stop. The signs are great to read and it is fantastic to have a swim in the clear shallow waters. Flies can be a burden though. If you're not used to them and have little kids - get a fly net. It can save you a lot of grief, especially with little people :)

The beach located along the road to Denham (Shark bay). Is completely full of billions of tiny cockle shells upto 9 metres deep.

This is an unexpeting experience to see a beach built of tiny shells. They are rock hard and built up to 10m in height . Very unusual.

Extraordinary to see this natural wonder. Interesting to remember your geography lessons and talk to your kids about the unusual environment that this beach and area represents.
