What are the best spots for shelling?Sanibel and Captiva islands are considered two of the best places in the world to go shelling. After all, the islands are made of shells, and countless more wash ashore every day.
The Gulf sides of the islands are ideal locations to fill your buckets or mesh bags. Head to the surf line with your water-friendly shoes (or no shoes) and scoop up the shells you want, or get piles of sand and sift through that. Stir things up with your feet to make sure you don’t miss any shells that are half-buried in the sand. Low tide is the best time of day to find good shells. Storms can wash good ones closer to shore, so check after the storm has passed.
And always remember, it’s illegal to take live shells. If you pick up one that’s alive, gently put it back in the water — don’t throw it.
