One of my favorite beaches in Sydney. Lovely oasis hideaway with superb restaurants. Bring some cash, and make the trip!

“Paradise ! Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

Shelly beach is a gem you can have the most amasing scuba dives, snorkelling and senic walks up to north head. Or you can just sun bath on the beach and enjoy the public bbq's that are free to use. Its only a ten minnute walk from manly and not hard to find just head south and you are their!

“It's one of the "Shire's" best-kept secrets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

There may be more than one "Shelly Beach", but "my" Shelly Beach is in Cronulla, reached by car or rail, and offering BBQ facilities, kiddies' playground, food outlets nearby, a rock pool, and changing rooms for men and women.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Manly Beach's better looking little brother. While the tourists pile down the Corso and dive straight onto Manly's tree-lined beach, the locals avoid the crowds by strolling 15 minutes the other way to the lovely Shelly Beach. Has a great coffee-hut -and is the starting point for the Manly heads walk (beware the spiders).

“Clear water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Beautiful clear, clean surf and sand. The walk along the scenic footpath is magnificent. We caught the Manly ferry and then walked to Shelley beach. The sun was shining and the sand was a lovely white soft sand, even if you don't go in for a swim, the walk along the beach is just the tonic to pick up ones spirits.
