Shelly Beach is sandwiched between Port Shepstone and Margate on the south coast of KwaZulu-Natal.

It is a popular destination for tourists for a number of reasons. It has a fine beach with the warm Indian Ocean making it possible to swim all year round. It is a good spot for surf and rock fishing, as well as scuba diving.

A wide variety of accommodation is available and there are numerous shops nearby. Port Shepstone and Margate are also just a few kilometres away.

A well-known attraction in the area is the nearby Pure Venom Reptile Park.
