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
