Professional Central Coast Council lifeguards patrol Shelly Beach from Monday until Friday. During weekends and on public holidays these locations are patrolled by Surf Life Saving volunteers.
For beach patrol dates and times, please see the website.
There is a dog off-leash area from the northern beach access walkway off Shelly Beach Road (adjacent to the golf course) to the beach access stairs opposite Swadling.
People with a disability will now find it easier to access Shelly Beach with a Sand Cruiser wheelchair available for bookings. Contact Shelly Beach Surf Club for bookings 02 4332 1623.
