Beachcombers enjoy nothing better than exploring new and interesting shells to collect. Shelling is among Florida’s visitor’s favorite things to do. Every beach is different and some beaches are better suited for shelling than others. If you visit a beach on one day, you may not find many shells at all. However, go a week later and you’ll discover an array of shells. The best time to look for shells is after a storm or low tide. All of the Florida beaches have shells but you’ll find that are on the Gulf in southwest Florida, with Sanibel Island being one of the best.
