This beach consists of millions of shells. The water is extremely salty. The views - unique. The information boards are very interesting - don't miss them. On a sunny day, ensure you have sunscreen as the reflection from the white shells can certainly burn the skin very quickly and wear flip-flops or sandals as the beach is very very hot.

Not really what I expected but well worth the time and effort if you are passing though that way. Amazing how and why all the shells can stay so deep in one place .

Unfortunately we visited this on a cloudy day with lots of flies but it was still lovely. I'm sure it's beautiful in the sunlight. It's def worth a stop on the way to monkey Mia or denham.

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.
