shelling on Sanibel
The best shelling is during the winter. You probably already know this, but best shelling is also at low tide. You will find good shells if you go in the water and search in the sand right before the waves break or near ledges where the shells will get caught and buried. We found beautiful shells using this technique. Locals will be able to tell you what is being found where during any particular week. Ask at the Shelling Museum on the Island too. If you are into shells, a visit there is a must. My kids loved it. Good luck!
