Shell Island Camp Site, Llanbedr, Gwynedd
Shell Island Camp Site offers camping facilities located close to the village of Llanbedr in Gwynedd. The campsite boasts stunning views of the unspoilt Welsh countryside, including Cardigan Bay and the Snowdonia National Park.
There are some 300 acres of land allocated to camping. This makes Shell Island the biggest camp site in the UK and the biggest camping site in Europe.
We do not allocate pitches so you can therefore find your ideal pitch yourself. Unfortunately we only have a camping license and therefore cannot accept caravans.
On arrival to Shell Island Camp Site campers must call in at the reception office to check in. On arrival you will receive a car pass and an information pack.
Campers may not pitch within 20 meters of another tent in the same field unless prior agreement is reached with adjoining campers. Campers are not allowed fires on the ground on any part of the site/ and dunes. Fires must be raised off the ground in a fire bin or a BBQ with an air gap in between.
With the site being so big we have over 35 water points, 22 fire extinguisher points and over 4 miles of roads and tracks across the Island. We have a shower and toilet block centrally situated.
More toilet blocks have been added around the site, with festival type toilets now only in the sand dunes. All other blocks have now been changed for modern blocks complete with lighting. If you wish to camp further afield, then bring your own Portaloo. Elsan disposal point available to the side of the main toilet block.
Shell Island has most of its facilities centrally located in the middle of the Island behind the leisure complex. The main toilet block has 14 cubicles for the ladies and 10 cubicles and 6 urinals for the gents.
The shower block located directly behind the main toilets, built in 1992 has a further two toilet cubicles for both ladies and gents. All showers are lined with stainless steel with a small area with a seat for changing in each cubicle. The water is temperature controlled at a single comfortable temperature and operated by a push button.
There are other toilets available adjoining the Green Cabin near the yacht basin. Other toilets are available within the Snack Bar and Tavern Bar. During the main season single chemical toilets are placed around the site in blocks.
The laundrette located next to the supermarket has three dryers and three washing machines. One washing machine is capable of boil washing. The washing machines are coin operated at £3.00 and the Dryers run on 20 pence coins (for 6 mins).
With stunning scenery all around and a variety of top tourist attraction’s close by you will always find something to pass the time.
