Abstract: A point $ x$ in a dendroid $ {\mathbf{X}}$ is called a shore point if there is a sequence of subdendroids of $ {\mathbf{X}}$ not containing $ x$ and converging to $ {\mathbf{X}}$ in the Hausdorff metric. We give necessary and sufficient conditions for a dendroid to be a dendrite, in terms of shore points and Kelley's property.
