Always stunning shell beach with crystal clear water and blue skies. Too cold to swim this time but ok to paddle.

We stopped as it was on our bucket list after research. Very glad we did as its a unique experience and very special. Not to say more as would spoil it for new visitors.

This place is amazing, to see a beach made completely from shells is really amazing. The shells go down by some 9 metres and it has taken thousands of years to get to this point, the beach is several kilometres long, the water is very salty and if you want to swim in it, you come out covered in salt,...

We stopped at she'll beach on our way back to the main highway from Denham. It was a whistle stop as there was not a lot to see. The shells are small and white, most crushed. I found some in a ditch. Not much else to see.

This vast beach is aptly named, due to the millions of tiny white shells that make up this beach. Crystal clear water ideal for swimming or snorkeling, some jelly fish though.

The most amazing accumulation of small shells I have ever seen. A truly one off experience and a rare quirk of nature well worth a look and it is free. Good explanations of everything.

One of the few beautiful and untouched beaches left in Australia. Just stroll around and lose yourself in its beauty

Shell beach is a must visit whilst holidaying up here the beach itself is very unique and when you walk on it the shells just crunch underfoot
