Absolutely beautiful! Well worth the 5km drive down the dirt track to get to the beach. There were a few campers there and was secluded which was nice. Definitely worth a visit if down this way

It's a stunning place to visit. A bit of a bumpy unsealed road to get to the lookout and beach, but well worth the drive. Absolutely stunning beach - could of stayed all day listening to the waves. One of the best beaches in WA.

We arrived early on Good Friday - got one of the last beach frontage camp spots on the grass. We had a walled gazebo so was protected from the wind when it set in late Arvo. Permanent drop toilet plus a few portaloos were provided over the busy weekend. About $10 per day each, a ranger comes and checks in... More

Stopped by here along a road trip and it was simply breathtaking....it was incredibly windy at the Lookout Point at the end of Shelley Beach Road. It's quite a slow and bumpy ride for about 10 to 15 minutes but the view was wonderful with very bracing winds! The beach was nice and clean and good for sunbathing and light... More

Rocked up here in our campervan early in the summer and what a place this was! A bit of a dirt road to go down but so worth it. Was quite windy but still bloody awesome! Shared the area with 2 to 3 other campers over 2 nights and wish we were there longer in hindsight. Its a simple place... More

Definitely worth the drive to this amazingly beautiful spot. Not only a great place to visit, for those who like to camp there is a small camping area adjacent to the beach

This was just a lovely beach to walk around on and take in the fantastic views and the great water colour. Very relaxing thing to do on the way to Albany.

After our disappointing camping trip last year, we decided to give Shelley Beach another go. While camping in Winter is cold, it does have the great bonus of having the place to ourselves. We spent three glorious peaceful days relaxing and beach walking. Our tents needed a lot of extra line as the wind was strong, but the solitude and... More

We camped here at a very cold time and it was great. Camp spot right near the beach. We were the only ones camping the night. Beautiful beach and camp ground. Long drop toilet available. Gas bottle was missing from the BBQ. I can imagine it would be very busy in summer
