Shelly Beach (NSW 319) is also about 100 m long, but is considerably wider and more permanent than Fairy Bower. It faces the west and waves have to refract 270˚ round Blue Fish Point to reach the beach. Consequently waves are low, and the beach steep and reflective, rich in shells eroded off the adjacent rock reefs. It is a popular beach backed by a wide grassy reserve, with parking up on the backing slopes. It is also a popular diving site, with many divers entering the water to dive the rocks around Fairy Bower.
Beach Length: 0.1km
