Shell Island for a weekend on the boat

Hey guys, we are off to Shell Island in North Wales tomorrow for a weekend of camping and boating (I know its going to rain but what the hell!!), have been loads of times before but never with a boat, anyone else been\going\got any tips for launching there?? Hopefully will get a pitch right up near the slipway so easy to catch the morning high tide!

Sorry if its bad form to resurrect an old thread but are you guys still here & if so what was Shell Island like? Trying to find somewhere nice & not too pricey for a weekend camping & boating & looks interesting from the website.

Any feedback please let me know, thanks
