Shelly Beach (NSW 127) is a 500 m long southward extension of Beilbys, which curves round in lee of Cliffy Point (Nambucca North Head) to face north (Fig. 4.66). As the beach becomes more sheltered it shifts from a low tide terrace to a steeper reflective beach face, with rocks and reef doting the nearshore. A road runs down the bluffs to the southern corner of the beach to a car park, toilets, picnic facilities and a boat ramp
