Shelly Bay Beach, Hamilton Parish

#5 of 6 in Things to do in Hamilton Parish
Wade into the tranquil ocean at Shelly Bay Beach, a small stretch of coast with calm, shallow water. You can walk out into it a good distance before having to swim, making this a good beach to go to if traveling with young children. Consider snorkeling around the rocks at either end of the bay, in the hopes of spotting some marine life. What it lacks in amenities, the beach makes up in its quiet, local atmosphere.
