Many of Wales’s most famous poets spent their entire lives trying to put in to writing the beauty that is Wales. There are too many stunning views to list, however to name a few. Situated at the north end of Cardigan bay looking out to sea you can see the LLyn Peninsula. Watching the sun set over the bay is one thing to put on your list of things to do at Shell Island you only have to search on social media to see the many thousands of pictures of a shell island’s sunset to understand why.
Looking to the north lies Snowden sitting in the heart of the Snowdonia national park, it is the highest mountain in Wales and the mountain that Sir Edmund Hilary trained on before conquering Everest.
Looking closer to Shell Island you will find Harlech Castle standing proudly to the right of Rhinogs Mountain range. Many people do not realise that the sea once washed up to the base of Harlech castle!
Looking south towards our sand dunes Cader Idris and the Cambrian mountain range.
Night times at shell island can be special too, being in such a remote location means the island has a very low light pollution level, which allows you to see a huge amount of stars, milky way and if you’re lucky enough a shooting star.
