Camping on Shell Island

Posted on August 30, 2015 at 8:11 pm

Shell Island is a little place just up the western coast of Wales. It is near Barmouth and is a popular destination for families, couples and friends. It is called an island because there is only one road that comes in and out and when the tide comes in this is cut off from the rest of Wales making it an island.

Recently, when staying in Barmouth, I took a day trip to Shell Island to see what it was all about. Once there, there is not much in the way of entertainment but the sites are beautiful and the location unspoilt. You have the valleys on one side and the ocean on the other.

You can chose to camp at Shell Island and once you are there can pitch your tent pretty much anywhere as long as you are not within 20 meters of the people next to you (without their prior consent).

If you like crab fishing, then this is definitely the place for you and with a local shop, pub and showing facilities onsite, you really do not need much more.
