Another beach on the roundup that doesn’t come with the traditional sand, Shell Beach is covered in thousands of shells (surprise, surprise). A World Heritage listed area, it’s one of the only two places on Earth that’s consistently being replenished by shells, thanks to a high population of the Hamelin Cockle clam that enjoys the high salt concentration in the water.
Found along Shark Bay, which stretches for more than 1500km of dazzling coastline, you’ll be able to see turquoise lagoons, barren peninsulas, hidden bays, white0-sand beaches, limestone cliffs, and a number of different islands. It’s one of Western Australia’s most biologically rich areas, with a variety of plant and animal life found nowhere else on earth.
Shark Bay itself has greatly benefitted from Project Eden, an ambitious ecosystem regeneration programme with an aim to reintroduce endemic species to the area.
