Would definitely recommend this site. Great setting, staff friendly, right on the beach and units were lovely and clean,all you needed inside. Will definitely go back and stay again. Lots to do nearby including pottery railway and coromandel town only a few km away.

Beautiful, quiet campsite. Amenities perfect. Playground for the children. Arrived in time to walk out to meet the incoming tide on the beach, and then watch a glorious sunset. Unfortunately we were only here for 1 night.

We stayed for a few nights in the week before Christmas. This place was a wonderful refuge away from the pre-Christmas madness. The staff were friendly, our cabin was very comfortable and the bird life was outstanding. Would happily stay again.

This unique property has direct access to a private beach. Looks wonderful at high tide, while low tide exposes the massive shellfish graveyard. Two nice, small playground areas. Felt a bit deserted, staff less than efficient. The Coromandel Peninsula is where we encountered the most hostile kiwis. They did not seem happy about tourists and campers in their towns. But...

I've camped here a couple of times and it's been great both times. Very clean amenities and close to Coromandel township. The beach is safe for small children and is pleasant for a swim, or a walk at low tide. A very well managed and safe campsite, I will definitely be going back to Shelly Beach.

Stayed there for one night and it was beautiful. Had one of the last sites near to the beach. Enjoyed a wonderful sunset there. Clean toilets and showers, nice BBQ-area, friendly owner. Would definitely come back there.

Really glad we chose to stay at the Shelly Beach caravan park and not the one in Coromandel Township as we were able to get closer to nature and have less crowds. Watch the sunset and listen to the tui's as you end the fantastic day in this beautiful part of the world. Park facilities are good with no issues... More

For my last night in New Zealand I decided to upgrade from a tent site to a cabin. After looking over the basic cabins I decided to upgrade to their nicest place. It wasn't fancy, less fancy then you might find at another campground, but it was nice and included a TV, couch, and porch. You had to leave the... More

We had been travelling for a bit so this was a good place for break. We camped right on the beach. Wandered on shelly beach..Interesting! We did not get to use any other facilities as we we had everything we needed in our campervan. The place was clean and well kept.

Had the great opportunity to have this park to ourselves on the last night of our trip. The place is run by two sweet older folks. It had a beach with a lot of shells (thus the name). The beach was not for swimming though. The tide is long and goes way out, so it remains shallow. The facilities were... More
