What equipment is provided with Snorkelling Hire?

With our snorkelling hire you can rent mask and snorkel flipper hire is additional if required. Wetsuit’s aren’t included, but start from $ 10 you can jump in a spring suit (short arms, short legs) or steamer (Full suit) for the whole time you’re out there exploring Shelly Beach and the surrounding reef.

Where is the best place to surf along the beach?

The best spot to surf depends on the day. Get down to the shop, we are right on the beach, check out the waves for yourself, or jump on our surf cam for the live feed.

On a south swell (the predominant swell direction) the south end will be smaller than the rest of the beach, so you can pick waves to suit your level. However there is usually a good wave right opposite the shop!

Are there rocks at Manly Beach?

There are rocks clearly visible at both ends of Manly Beach. There are no rocks along the beach. There is however a pipe that sticks out in the water around the middle of the beach. The pipe is visible at low tide and may be covered at high tide. Care should be taken not to surf into the pipe and also wave action can push unwary surfers and swimmers into the pipe. The pipe is to be avoided.
