Shell Beach

To the left is Shell Beach which is between Hamelin Pool and Monkey Mia. It is a huge stretch of, well, shell beach!

There are millions of these tiny shells. In places they have compacted into a limestone which has been quarried at Hamelin Pool and also a little at Shell Beach (hence the craters)

The stone was then used to construct some buildings in Denham
