Shell Beach, Denham
(4.3/5 based on 360 reviews on the web)
The remarkable, rare spectacle of a sun-bleached beach made entirely of shells rather than sand awaits the visitor to Shell Beach, a 110 km (68 mi) stretch of land in Western Australia. The stark whiteness of the beach contrasts vividly with the azure of the sea, while the shells of Shell Beach generally reach a depth of 7 to 10 meters (23 to 33 ft). Only one other such beach is known to exist. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Denham holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Shell Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
