Shelly beach is located directly opposite the famous Manly beach. Its very easy to get to get to. From Manly you can walk along the ‘South Steyne to Shelly’ walk which takes aprox 5 minutes.
There is a big reef at shelly beach point which attracts lots of aquatic wildlife. Theres planty of reef sharks (Not Dangerous), gropers, fish and I have seen dolphins there on numerous occasions.
If you don’t have snorkelling gear you can hire it from Manly Surfboard rentals or Dive Centre Manly. If you don’t feel like snorkelling its still a great place for a swim. When youre our there watch out for the surfers.
After your day on the water is nice to relax on the beach or go for a walk in the bush tracks also theres a nice restaurant called the boat house.
