Natural Attractions

Shelley Beach, between Sorrento and Portsea, is a much loved sandy beach with private jetties, colourful boat sheds and bathing boxes nestled among the ti-tree.

There are two access ramps leading down the cliff to the beach but extremely limited parking makes this a very exclusive beach. Although in the past decade tidal erosion has destroyed some of the buildings at the western end of the beach.

Shelley Beach is now being replenished by sand from Portsea where the beach has almost disappeared since The Heads were widened in 2009.

Shelley Beach is also a leash-free dog beach from 7pm -9am during daylight savings. Sandy beach between Franklin Road and Hemston Avenue.
Always refer to signs at beach entry points as changes to dog restrictions may be made at any time by local authorities.
