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.

This holiday park has so much to offer any touring caravan or tent camper. The park has a great reputation and is usually well booked up as all the staff cannot be more helpful and the fee's are resonable. Do not pass this one.

We rented a 'dog friendly' caravan for a week from a private owner (via uk caravans 4 hire) which can often work out cheaper than booking via Abbeyford Leisure. It is quite a large site and probably one of the best that we've been to....More

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!
