The South Coast offers visitors a choice of quiet and secluded beaches, safe family beaches and party beaches all in close proximity to each other. The sub-tropical waters at Shelly Beach is another draw card for holiday makers and Shelly Main Beach has become a playground for families and scuba divers!

Welcome to an underwater paradise, approximately 1500 metres from the beach is a well-known diving reef and just a little further, divers can enjoy big game fish and even sharks lurking around at Protea Banks, a worldwide known diving destination. Shelly Main Beach is a popular boat and ski boat launching site and is therefore a favourite for not only diving, but also fishing and dolphin and whale watching excursions.

If you love beautiful sandy beaches, tropical weather and warm ocean waves, then this one is for you. Safe for swimming with shark nets and life guards on duty, this beautiful beach is ideal for families. Lay down a towel and enjoy some sun rays or take as stroll with the kids and collect shells – Shelly Beach lives up to its’ name – or enjoy some water sports if you are feeling active, a day out at this beautiful beach will not disappoint.
