went here for a short break and was pleasantly suprised by how lovely the site was. A mixture of camping, touring and static pitches on quite a deceivingly extensive site.
A large childrens play area greets you as soon as you turn into the park from the very long and narrow access rd (hubby spotted a deer on the way in).
We arrived very late on a Friday and the staff were nothing short of welcoming and helpful. Rented a 6 bert static and found it to be spotless, very well equipped and not too far from the bar and entrance.
The site is literally right on the beach of shell bay, the coastal walk is recommended (weather permitting). Plenty to do for kiddies, even though we didn't take any.
The bar was busy on the friday and saturday with entertainment including bingo. Sunday was quieter.
2 mins drive from the small town of Elie, although I understand buses stop outside the entrance when hailed.
Would recommend Shell bay to families, singles and couples as a great base for an adventure in Fife!
