 Booked Shell as I had been before a bit apprehensive as I hadn't Off Gridded before.

On arrival on a very windy morning I went to reception where I was greeted by enthusiastic and polite staff. Told I could pitch where I liked as long as I was 15 metres away from anyone I didn't know.

The site is huge and surrounded by amazing scenery from beaches, mountains and Harlech castle.

The site has a reasonably priced market, outdoor shop and gift shop.

The bar was cosy with a large outdoor seated and play area.

The food bar was plentiful and again reasonably priced.

There is a single large shower block which can be a trek depending where you are set up but several toilet blocks dotted around.

You are not far from other great pubs, towns and villages which are well worth seeing between tides

For me this is a must visit if you are tenter, motorhomer or campervanner. You won't be disappointed.

I'm going back

 Have been on loads of sites, and this one is one of the best.

Pitch where you like, superb views, and superb facilities.

Keen prices, campfires encouraged and a 15 m policy between units.

Best of all - no caravans.

You have to try shell island at least once in your lifetime.

 We've been coming for 20 years. Now the kids have left school, we come outside of school holidays.

Much quieter, and peaceful.

The island has things for people of all ages, and the dog loves it.

 I love the freedom of Shell Island, its vast amount of walks, beautiful scenery and mountain views.

The cleanliness of their showers and toilets.

It's outside drinking area and dog friendly walks.

It definitely deserves 5*

Reviewer: Keithc63 1 review from this member

 Again a great time

Fortunately the weather was Perfect

So much to do, fishing, crabbing, eating, drinking, lazing about,

Been coming Here for Over 40 years when all there was, was a check in at the House/shop and the little Beach shed next to the telephone box / wishing well.

For the Size of the camp site it is well Maintained. Usually clean,

The shop is well stocked, not over priced really.

The Bar/tavern ( unfortunately due to covid restrictions, TV room was closed so unable to watch the Football. )

Everyone we met outside in temp Marquee was friendly and happy to have a bit of banter about the footie "Man Utd vs Wolves "

Cant wait for 2022 season. When Hopefully all restrictions are lifted, and back to normal

 What can I say about beautiful Shell Island. Something for all ages.

Beaches, woods, sand dunes, sea fishing, nice club with food and entertainment.

If you havenít experienced this land of honey, then put it on the bucket list ❤️
