Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went to New Quay to see the sea front and, after reading about it on Trip Advisor, to seek out The Shell Shop. We were not disappointed. I loved it. Fabulous shells, souvenirs and assorted nicknacks to buy. Very reasonable prices and friendly staff. I had a lovely time browsing and buying. I would thoroughly recommend a visit.

We first visited here in 2018 and are so happy to see the place is still open post-pandemic in 2023. When our daughters were really young, they loved the shells, mermaid dolls and general nik-naks. Now they’re older, they love the jewellery sold here. Our 7yo son now loves all of the shells and nik-naks!

I have always loved the jewellery and beach/ocean themed gifts The Shell Shop sells. Lots of items are very reasonably priced; a must-visit if you’re in this very beautiful part of Wales.

Lovely shop full of reasonably priced gifts and items to take home a piece of New Quay with you. We bought some lovely magnets, shells and collectibles. The two ladies serving spent most of the time we were there discussing issues over stock placement, and it would have been nice if they’d been a bit more attentive. I kept feeling like I was getting in their way, and they didn’t seem to be paying any attention to the numerous people looking around the shop and picking things up etc. A really unique place though, full of wonderful items, and I’d happily visit and buy from them again.

What an absolute gem of a find! An array of the most wonderful things to buy! Amazing lady who served us! It would be criminal to visit Newquay without a trip to this great shop!

Visited The Shell Shop last week on our last day in Wales. Its a beautiful shop with a friendly sales assistant.

As the name suggests, you can buy shells here along with other beach ornaments. I bought a lovely shell and driftwood hanging piece and some sea-themed ornaments.

Lovely shop, well worth the visit!

Halfway up the steep hill but worth the effort. Loved the coconut pirate head, think its a money box but would double as a bird feeder and only £3.50. Well worth a browse
