 Additional Information

If you dont get a parking spot at Shelley Park, many of the side streets offer access to The Esplanade.

Watch out for the end section, shallow.
Don't sit too far behind the pool, you won't make the first section.
Access via the rock point just north of the pool, don't paddle out through the little bay, but come in through the bay.

Atmosphere

If the beaches are ugly; ie crowded, huge, closing out etc, then Shelly will usually have a nice little wave. All types of surfers go out, Longboarders, shortboarders, body boarders and even goat boats occasionally. Shelley tends to be less crowded than the rest of Cronulla.
Often overlooked which is good, it's usially alot better than it looks from the shore.

General

I really like this spot. I find it easy to get out the back, with an easy rock jump access. Then there is a beach to come into when you are finished.
