I am a huge shell collector and this beach is amazing. But you can't take any shells with you...this is a definite visit I would recommend. There are small dunes of shells and you can walk out a long way when the tide is out.

This is quite an amazing place. The surface has been compacted hard and feels like the ruber matting they have in play grounds. Dig just below the surface and you find thousands of small shells.

We drove down to shell beach one day, the kids went swimming & snorkelling in the beautiful calm water to see all sorts of fish, the shells were everywhere, big piles of them.

If passing this way the beach is only a few hundred metres from the road. A surreal place to visit and would love to do so late in the afternoon but our timetable did not allow for this. The beach is made of of shells rather then sand and the water is crystal clear. Facilities are a bit lacking as... More

Found this very unusual but very pretty, the day we chose to visit was overcast and gave off such a beautiful glow on the water ... Reminds me of the bags of shell grit my grandparents bought for their crooks .... Oh and make sure you wear closed in shoes not sandals it hurts

Beach is huge, all made of tiny shells. Water is very shallow for a long way, you can walk into the water for 100 meters or so.

This is a magical beach where you can sit amidst seemingly infinite numbers of small shells that make up the beach. How nice it is depends on the nature of the tourists you share the beach with. Some visits - quiet and lovely, other visits dominated by loud annoying tourists. If you sit long enough, you get a bit of... More

Very picturesque and not too far from the road, and certainly very interesting. The sea is incredibly salty!
