Shelly Beach, Manly

Natural Attractions

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 cafe along with two free electric barbeques, perfect for that family picnic. For a more formal dining option, there is a cafe on the beach named The Boathouse.
