love this place, only started camping 2018 and Shell Island is the only place we have been to and we kept going back there throughout the summer, it's got everything you'll ever need in one massive camp place! Gift shop, pub, mini-mart, camping shop, and cafe/restaurant,

Great place for both adults and kids. There’s only a couple of spots with mobile phone reception and no free WiFi access so it’s exactly what today’s kids need in a break away! Facilities are clean, warm and well maintained and there’s a cafe onsite if the weather’s that bad

We really enjoyed going here. We went out of school time and the weather was beautiful, except for a storm one night, but that just added to the thrill. Stunning views and scenery, quiet and tranquil. You can park up where you like, and we found a very quiet spot near the toilet

This is the kind of campsite that you don’t have to leave. It has a pub, a shop, beaches, a tidal stream and a harbour. This might suit you and it might not. All the staff are really friendly, and you can be lucky or unlucky with the other campers.

We didn't leave shell island. We climbed the sand dunes at night to watch the sun going down mine loved this. Bit chilly though so wrap up. I got up early and watched the sun come up behind the mountains also on the sand dunes. Lots of children were crabbing near the harbour when we went. There is a small park onsite. A small games room but I'd say this is for older children. The village you drive through looks nice to walk round if you get chance. We didn't. Plenty of space if you take some grass games like football etc.

We got blown away a few weeks ago it added to the adventure just make sure your guide ropes are tight 😁 it realy is a toss of a coin with shell but have you ever seen a more beautiful sight than when you stand on the brow of the hill up by the bathrooms and look in a 360 it takes my breath away xxx
