Shell island is situated between Barmouth and Llandanwg on the north west coast of Wales. The island isn't an island any longer but a campsite. The shore is rocky with large boulders but as the tide is near it's lowest you find you are on clear sand all the way. A fairly strong rip here and you need to keep an eye on the tide to get out without crashing in to boulders but worth the effort on the right day. The coastline around the area is vast and fairly un surfed because it apparently rarely works here!!. Fortunately for me the week we were staying in the campsite here there was a good off shore breeze and good swell off the back of a hurricane coming up the gulf stream. Could be a great place in winter to go exploring under the right conditions.
