Nestled behind a wide expanse of dunes and a sweeping sandy beach, multi-award-winning Elie Holiday Park at Shell Bay is a true hidden gem. Voted as the Best Visitor Attraction in Fife by Kingdom FM listeners, families have been enjoying holidays here for generations and are attracted by the unique location, fantastic entertainment, abundance of wildlife and the exciting Robinson Crusoe Adventure Park. Childhood memories are made here. From morning 'til dusk, there is so much to do and see. You can walk the coastal path, go rock-pooling, spot seals lolloping in the Forth, spy deer bobbing between the trees and, if you're lucky, you may even see a rare red squirrel! Kids can go wild at the Robinson Crusoe Adventure Park and enjoy the exciting arcades in the Smugglers' Cove Games Room. Couples will also love Elie Holiday Park. Explore the picturesque fishing villages, enjoy a walk around Ruddons Point (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and catch one of the local summertime festivals. In the evening, sample the tasty new menu at the Kincraig View Restaurant and live entertainment at Ruddons Bar.

Been a while since we were here, but can't fault it when we were here. Nice wee beach, good walks, entertainment was good, food was fine as well. Only thing is you can't guarantee the weather, no matter when you go!

Definitley a place to camp or rent a motor home. Sapcious and not clumped together. You can even organise a horse ride on the beach. Just enquire at the recption.

Hired a pitch for a tent which cost roughly £30. It cost £20 deposit for the shower block/toilet key but you get this back. It's in a lovely spot next to the beach. Small shop selling basic essentials. Restaurant is fine, quality good, service slow though, breakfast took 45 min. It's well lit at night if you need to go... More

Touring caravans hemmed in like battery chickens. Shower block too small for site, situated too far away from tourers. All the facilities seem to be geared towards guests staying in static caravans. Shop is a joke, nothing in it and as there is nothing else within walking distance you have to go out the park for even the basics. Think... More

Fantastic holiday park with a bit of something for every age and very well managed . plenty room between the pitches makes it a good comfortable space for everyone spread out and with a cracking play park with Ship and shop and entertainment bar ,the only thing not guaranteed is the weather.

Near to this site is the chain walk which means you can climb down the rock face on one side and climb up the other. Very strenuous and you need to make sure the tide is out whilst you negotiate the climb. Afterwards, return to the site club/bar and enjoy a well earnec drink. Wear very sturdy SHOES/climbing boots and... More
