Shelly Beach is located in Manly and forms part of Cabbage Tree Bay, a protected marine reserve which lies adjacent to North Head and Fairy Bower. With a maximum depth of approximately 12 metres, Shelly Beach has become popular with Scuba Divers and Snorkelers alike with a large variety of marine life which can viewed in relatively shallow water.
Take a walk around the bush track which hugs the headland offering spectacular views of North Head and the Northern Beaches. Shelly Beach has showers, toilets and a kiosk along with two free electic barbeques, perfect for that family picnic. For a more formal dining option, there is a restaurant on the beach named Le Kiosk. Parking at Shelly Beach is available for AUD8 per hour.
