Shelly Beach

Shelly Beach is a small secluded beach that is great for walking, exploring rock pools and picnics. This beautiful stretch of oceanfront is unpatrolled and not suitable for swimming meaning you’ll rarely see a crowd on the shore.

Shelly Beach is renowned for its ankle-deep rock pools that abound with marine life and the nearby park with undercover tables making it the ideal spot for a beachside picnic.


Dicky Beach

Dicky Beach is great for swimming, surfing and beach fishing, and is patrolled by the Dicky Beach Surf Lifesaving Club. In 1893 the SS Dicky was forced ashore during heavy seas and its iron skeleton remained for many years – giving the beach its name.
