Shells, are what we are famous for!
During the Winter months, the Shells are washed up by the Winter storms. Shells can be gathered by the bagful in the Spring, infact it is almost impossible to avoid treading on them. Some two hundred different types of shell are to be found washed up on the beaches. Oyster, Scallop, Tusk, Tellin, Razor, Cockle, Dog Cockle, Saddle Oyster, Whelk, Cowries and all sorts are washed up in the Winter. There are some twenty different shells that would sit together on a 5 pence piece. The
best time to see the shells is January-June.
In the Snack bar there is a display, naming all the shells that have been found on the Island.
