Shell Beach, Denham

4.7
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. Use our Denham trip planner to visit Shell Beach on your trip to Denham, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
