“Great for little children to swim”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

This was a beach we used a lot when the kids were little as there are very little waves. It is also a great place for a picnic as there are BBQ's and a grassed area. We often enjoy a coffee or icecream at the cafe here after walking from Manly. The children still like to explore the beach rocks and the bush area along side. You will often see divers and people snorkelling here.

“Nice little beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Great place to have a swim or picnic. The waves are about the size I like - nearly flat

“A lovely short walk from Manly Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

If visiting Manly Beach, this short coastal walk to Shelly Beach is well worth doing. Lovely scenery and art work to view on route. Shelly Beach looks lovely, but swimming is not advisable after heavy rain.
