About this place
The unique composition of the beach makes it one of only two of its type in the world. Tiny shells that stretch for over 70 kilometres. In the early 1900s, the shells were quarried and hard packed, cut into blocks and used to construct a number of historic buildings in the nearby town of Denham.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
