Another fantastic beach option on the Northern Beaches. 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. There is heaps of fish and other marine life so get your snorkels at the ready and enjoy what's on offer - the water is very clear so you can almost guarantee seeing some great stuff.
Shelly Beach has showers, toilets and a kiosk along with two free BBQs perfect for that family picnic. The Boathouse also serves up decent grub, though does become a bit of a fight for a table at times.
