Friendly and helpful staff. Clean facilities, free BBQs, hot showers and a nice quiet camp ground. Only negative is there is no swimming pool and the beach is not a swimming beach.

Hi Trevor
Thank you for your feedback, when the tide is in you can swim but unfortunately the tide does go out a long way at low tide, glad you enjoyed your stay

Absolutely gorgeous location right on the beach front. From the check in to the departure our stay was absolutely magical. We loved the fantastic information that the camp manager gave us at check in. The facilities on site were spectacular. And the added benefit/fun experience of the movie night was awesome. We found all of the facilities to be clean and really functional with the layout. The campground although quite busy at the beginning of January did not feel cramped at all and we enjoyed our stay here Immensely. It was the best campground that we stay in during our week long camping trip around the coromandel

Clean facilities, large bathroom/shower, grounds are well maintained. Right on the bay, at low tide you can walk out for miles. I would agree w other reviewers, not really a swimming beach but there is lots to entertain. Gorgeous view. We did get bit by sand flies but that’s to be expected! Our kids loved the jumping pillow and the trampolines!

Not really a beach, more mud flats with shells but good for bird watchers. Site was pleaseant with good pitch sizes, kitchen and lounge. Wi-fi only worked near reception. Too far to walk into town.

Awesome location not far from Coromandel Town and situated right on the beach! We stayed one night in a lodge room due to bad weather forecast, it was simple room but clean and comfortable. The second night we stayed in a non powered tent site which was situated perfectly and under plenty of shade, the trees also provided some privacy. The bathroom, kitchen and shared areas are all cleaned daily and in good condition with plenty of space.

Nice, but one of the bigger campsites. We phoned before and they wanted to make the booking by credit card directly for guaranteeing the spot (funny that it was not full at all this night!) Next time I would drive a bit further to the next bay, where you also can rent kayaks...

The kids were disappointed to find the jumping pillow broken, but soon were totally immersed in the beach. Thousands of shells and such a large tidal variation that we actually gave up walking out to the shoreline at low tide. You won't swim here but it's a great beach to explore.

Showers and toilets were immaculately kept.

Heard kiwis or wekas calling in the night.

Hi
Sorry for the pillow being broken but love that the kids enjoyed the beach, being in the country a bit it is great to hear the wildlife at night.

Never disappointed. Clean and spacious facilities both kitchens and bathrooms. Staff usually friendly and helpful. The main and only way they should improve is to give free WIFI and reduce the costs to use their computers - too expensive!!!

The only good thing about shelly beach top 10 was the veiw of it in my rear vision mirror. Probably the most run down camp ground i have been to. Most things in the kitchen dont work properly (gas hobs Jug BBQ) I tryed four showers before i found one that worked ok. And the carpet in the cabins was disgusting. the manager at the time had the personelity of hermit crab(go and talk to someone who cares.) Other than that Coromandel is an awsome place loved the town and the train Ride.

Arrived on a very busy day thinking we were getting the great experience at other top 10 holiday parks we had visited. Sadly it is a very poor comparison. The rooms which were small contained nothing other than 2 sets of bunks when I had requested a double. There is no tv or information in the rooms about what to do or things to see. The staff were unfriendly and I would never come back. The showers barely have enough pressure to get you wet, let alone clean and the toilets leave alot to be desired. If you want to visit a top 10 park, visit somewhere like Papamoa. Shelly Beach is poor

Book a beach view site - the location is fantastic! Otherwise the campground is average.

A great family campground to explore the Coromandel and Coville areas. There is an attractive beach but don't expect to swim as it's very tidal. Nice facilities, friendly staff, tidy, Wi-Fi and only 5 minutes to Coromandel.
