Shelly Beach is a coastal suburb which is a little more than a 90 minute drive from Sydney. The beach is popular with surfers thanks to reliable swells, as well as with golfers, as it's adjacent to an 18-hole course. In terms of holiday lettings, you'll find both quaint beach shacks and modern apartments in the area. Farther afield, there are other interesting beach towns as well as a number of nature reserves, so consider hiring a car to make the most of your Shelly Beach holiday.
Eating out near Shelly Beach
Even if the swells are too much for you or the little ones, you'll still be spoilt for choice when it comes to mealtime in Shelly Beach. Fresh seafood is, naturally, always on the menu in this area. A stylish option is Ocean Restaurant, right next door to Shelly Beach in the town The Entrance.
For casual breakfast right on the water, you can't do better than Munchas Cafe, which is right next to the sea. Fish and chips in a laid-back setting are served just down the coast at Byth's Bateau Bay Fish Shop. For seafood and a cocktail in the evenings, the Balcony Restaurant at Shelly Beach Surf Club is just the ticket.
Cultural points of interest near Shelly Beach
Where there's the sea, there are shells. The Entrance Shell Museum offers interactive exhibits about, yes, shells, which are fun and educational for the whole family. Head here during inclement weather, or when you're sick of sand and sun.
You'll also find several galleries in and around town, which are great for picking up gifts made by local artists. Be sure to stop by Toowoon Bay Gallery, The Entrance Gallery, and also in The Entrance, Gallery Vignette.
Enjoy the surrounds of Shelly Beach
Just south of Shelly Beach is the suburb Bateau Bay. Here you can enjoy long coastal walks, head to Crackneck Point Lookout for views (bring a picnic, too!), or visit one section of the two-part Wyrabalong National Park. Speaking of this park, if you head north from Shelly Beach and past The Entrance, you'll arrive at its other section. Look out for birds and whales, enjoy incredible views, and go for a hike.
For slightly calmer waters than you'll necessarily find at Shelly Beach, head up the coast to Blue Bay. The water here is clean and clear and the beach is beloved for being fairly devoid of visitors. Just keep in mind there is no patrol. Golfers, meanwhile, don't have to go far for entertainment. Hit the links at Shelly Beach Golf Club, and for a particularly spectacular experience, try to get a round in around sunset.
