Thinking of going to Shell Island over the Oct half term break, don't know much about the spot but seen pictures and it looks stunning. Can anyone give me some advise/recommendations please

It's a great place for children my two loved the place particularly the sand dunes. The island is big enough to set up your own camp away from anybody else if you preffer. For those who like Welsh Mountains and narrow boats have a look at my videos and photos at..

The coast either side of of Shell Island is equally as nice ... and accessible without having to pay a fee! Miles of beach at Harlech. Some nice campsites slightly inland from Llanbedr. It started with a kiss, never thought it would come to this.
SIII CSW Safari, limestone, (JAC 914N). Where is she now?

It's not a car, it's a way of life!

Not been for years, but whenever I did go, I always camped in the dunes. Euro-Leafing to infinity and beyond.....

Being from abroad, I had to look it up because it peeked my interest, but it turns out that - despite what the name implies - it isn't an actual island!? Defender 130 HCPU Td5 MY2000

No its not an island.... just feels like an island,

but only accessible by a causeway at low tide.

The joining land is ex- military..now privately owned with no rights of way

Ah, I see, thank you. That makes it somewhat of an island then, I agree... Defender 130 HCPU Td5 MY2000
