We went on a snorkeling tour with EcoTreasures at Shelly Beach. I was told it would be too cold in September, but I was hopeful the wetsuit would help. Unfortunately, I was so cold that I came back early which caused a hassle for our...More
Different from other huge beaches in Sydney , Shelly is very quiet and nice. There is a nice restaurant and the water is calm and warm protected by the coast.
Maybe not the most famous but one of the most charming
This little beach is a lovely walk from Manly Beach. The minute you get there you can see why it is called Shelly Beach. If you're an Interesting Fact lover, this beach is the only Westward facing beach on the Eastern Seaboard. We visited in...More
We loved this small beach for hanging out. On a weekday afternoon in winter it was sunny pleasant and not crowded. Easy parking, a great cafe facing the water, a lovely path to walk along the water or a bush walking trail along the cliffs...More
We walk along the waters edge to Shelly Beach, lots to see along the way. Even a coffee shop shop if that's what you like. Big natural rock on one side of the track & the ocean on the other. The walk is flat and...More
A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.

Although the beach itself is calm, but if you wonder too far away, you will be in the open ocean where the current can be dangerous. There are venomous sea life as well to be cautious of, best go with a local experienced guide. Why take unnecessary chances.

150 people in one group is a lot, I am presuming buses, the car park allows drop it ft but I don't think there is designated bus space. The grassed area would be nice for a large group and the small beach is suitable for children.
The Boathouse cafe is large but wouldn't be able to sit you all at once. I would definitely phone them at Moby Dicks at Whale Beach 02 99745440 and discuss the arrangements with the Boathouse Group management. They don't have phones at Shelley Beach!!!!
There is a kiosk for take away coffees etc but again for a group this big I think you would be best to phone and tell them of your visit so they can have sufficient staff,
Enjoy, it is a great spot!
