 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): Shell Bay is a bit of a mixed bag of a spot, the pessimists amomgst us are forever complaining about the smell, the seaweed which causes the smell and the fact that it is a nightmare to launch at high tide

The optimists, on the other hand, will tell you that when Shell is going off, there really is no place like it.

Best avoided between one hour to high tide to one hour past high tide, Shell is a large, shallow sandy bay. admittedly not the cleanest water quality due to the aforementioned seaweed but a spot that offers huge amounts of fun.

Due to the constantly changing mini sand bars,Shell offers everything from bump and jump 3' high chop to glassy smooth water

Locals are a very friendly bunch
