- In a coastline blessed with wonderful stretches of wave pounded beaches, Shelly Beach is a unique treasure. This small curve of sand and shells at the inner tip of Cabbage Tree Bay is sheltered by the headland, providing a haven of calm sea. It is very popular with families, snorkelers and divers; who can often be seen staggering up the beach after exploring the surrounding marine reserve. The walk from Manly along Fairy Bower takes in beautiful ocean vistas and the small bush area around the headland is criss crossed with walking paths. Right on the beach is the famous Le Kiosk, a top notch eatery, and next door is a lovely low key cafe, perfect for a coffee or banana smoothie. The beach also has free gas BBQs, picnic tables and limited parking.
