“Lovely Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Well, I guess I am prejudiced because Shelly Beach is where my future husband has asked for my hand in the marriage... It's very nice walk there from Manly Beach, I like the animals statues put into the rock edging the walk. Many birds to see, or crabs on the rocks, and there is a lovely restaurant(but rather pricy). Good beach to go snorkeling as well, there are some good spots.

“Next to Manly a great little cove”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Take a rest from the surfers and pop around to Shelly beach a quite cove overlooking Manly. With a nice bar and your own beach BBQ, it is a delight with safe surfer free swimming.

“Wonderful place to sit and watch locals play”

A pleasant stroll along the waterfront from Manly to Shelly Beach. Sadly there is not much shade available.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Hide away from manly beach, and is at the end of the manly walk.
Its a very small beach where diving is practised. But the open bar looks amazing!

“Diving +”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We were visiting family in Sydney, and my husband decided we would have a scuba dive here. Was a very easy place to have a very pleasant, relaxing and easy, but not hugely exciting shore dive.
It was a really nice place to sit between dives - two weddings on the beach while we were there - and be able to have a really nice lunch and coffee at the café after we dived. Advise anyone to arrive early however if they want a park. Also a nice protected safe beach for families. BBQ facilities, toilets, showers and water fountains. Café and Restaurant.
