Shell Island started off as a farm dating back to the Doomsday book of 1086. The Island developed as a tourist attraction in the 1880’s with the coming of the railways.

In 1958 it was bought by the Workman family who still run it today. With its unique location on the North Cardigan bay, in the Snowdonia National Park, it attracts families from all over the UK and Europe for camping holidays and day visits.

With over 450 acres, of which 300 acres are available for camping, Shell Island has developed into one of the largest camping sites in Europe. Shell Island appeals strongly to those who love un-spoilt countryside, and those who appreciate quietness. So whether you come for the day, or a weeks holiday, Shell Island offers everybody their own piece of paradise.

Reviews of Shell Island Camp Site

Best campsite in Europe, if you are into proper camping. IF you camp in the right place then campfires are allowed.
The kids love the acres of sand dunes, Excellent facilities on the campsite,
Plenty of Natural Wales to explore locally.
This is a regular haunt for myself and my son for the last 5 years.
Have camped all over the UK and Europe and this by far is our favorite.

camping at shell island was amazing. the sand dunes were beutiful and there was suprisingly no rubish to be seen, we had gone into the central part of the camp ite but we were still only 10 minutes away from the beach which aswell towards the end of the day and in the morning was beutiful due to the amazing sunset and the soft sand. I am only 5ft4inches and could still walk out into the sea for quite a while which at the time of year i went wasa very good temperatur. the only fault was the pub that was at the entrance, which to be honest was full of men drinking beer, but in their defence they were not at all disruptive during my staty at the camp site. I would strongly recomend anyone to go there and I my self am going back to the camp site again in july and I am thoughrly looking forward to it, I hope you do get the chance to go and have a stay there as I did, have fun!
