- ABOUT THE SPOT
Snorkeling in Shelley beach, Manly, New South Wales Australia
Manly is a suburb of northern Sydney. Historic landmarks, sandy beaches, hidden coves and impressive National Parks are certainly part of the charm of this destination. It is a safe and easy activity since the spot is protected from the ocean due to a reef on the right side of the beach.
The maximum depth is about at 12 m/39.3 ft but many areas are swallow with depths, ranging from 2 m/6.5 ft to 6 m/19.6 ft. The visibility is good and it can be explored all year long. Snorkelers will have the opportunity to admire weedy sea dragons, yellowtails, Port Jacksons and whaler sharks (during winter months).
