Shelling on sanibel island


All of our Inns have beautiful white sand beaches, clear blue water and an abundance of colorful shells that have been dubbed "Treasures From the Sea." People from all over the world come to collect and admire the shells from Sanibel Island. The island's east/west orientation is unique and allows the beaches to catch an abundance of sea shells from the Gulf of Mexico. The best shelling is after a storm or during low tide. You'll find young and old stooping over to collect the treasures from the what has become known as "The Sanibel Stoop."
