Hi.
Good walking in and around the area,there is a footpath that takes you through the old airfield,bringing you out at the start of the causway,cross the road and continue to walk up the river bank,crossing the railway line,this will bring you out in Llanbedre,opposite Queen Vic. (Good meals and if in the area without the M/h. A very nice place to stay overnight). Ask at the shop/pub whatever ! about the "Roman Steps". Its a HIKE!! from the pub just to get to them,to far for me,and in anything bigger than a PVC to be avoided,but once at the car park,the walk up to the top of the steps is very good and the views from the top,worth it.It is an old Roman trail,take a picnic.
Love the area,if it is a rainy day,go to the Slate mines,you can spend a wet day there without getting wet."There is nice for you" LOL.
Walk to Llanbedre and catch the train,Barmouth-Portmadoc,or wherever takes your fancy,have fun.
Tea Bag.
PS. It is rumoured that part of the beach is "Nudist" between S/Island and Barmouth,never did get to find out,the mrs kept hold of my braces !!

It was not until we got home.. I mentioned on here that while it may be a lovely site, at 20 odd quid a night it was vastly over priced
It was then someone told me how much we SHOULD have paid.
Dug out the receipt ( read scrap of paper ) and double checked..
Absolutely no point in complaining to the site as quite obviously they would have denied it ( and quite right too.. they do not know me from Adam and I could easily be trying to rip THEM off )
All I am saying is be careful at peak times as they obviously employed a bit of a chancer to fill in ( this happened in August )

That rumour's been around for at least 40 years - a young lady friend of mine confirmed it was true when she took a stroll down the beach back in summer 1977 and met some naked people.

We left Shell Island this morning about 8.30 in blazing sunshine and its been like that all over Easter (except Friday) we both got caught out and both have a bit of sunburn.
Beautiful blue skies and glorious sunsets and watching the porpoises feeding 20 yards from the van.
No electric and very little in the way of facilities are what make it special just park where you want in the dunes or next to the beach. Its not a all singing and dancing campsite thank god, there are plenty of those around if that's your thing, its unique.
Couple of pics taken this weekend.
