Shell Beach

Shell Beach is located 45 kilometres south-east of Denham in the Shark Bay World Heritage Area not far from the Hamelin Pool Stromatolites

This beautiful snow-white beach is made up of millions of tiny shells up to 10 metres deep and stretching for over 70 kilometres.

On a still day, the ocean at Shell Beach transforms into a palette of the most intense greens and blues - and the water is very salty (hyper-saline), making it easy to float for those who aren’t strong swimmers.

The shells were once used to build the office walls of buildings in the area, some of which can still be seen today.
