Shelly Caravan Park is a peaceful camping and caravan resort situated in the seaside town of Shelly Beach on the lower South Coast of Kwa Zulu-Natal. The resort itself is set around it's own private dam in the countryside and yet it is just five minutes drive from the ocean, and close to all amenities. The resort offers large treed stands with electrical plug points whilst incorporating an enormous sparkling swimming pool, recreational hall (with 2 x table tennis tables (bats not supplied), darts board (darts not supplied) and pool table), a large wooden jungle gym outside for the kids and a gazebo with wooden tables and built in braais.
