Shelling on sanibel island
All of our Inns feature direct access to the beautiful white sand beaches and their abundance of colorful shells that have been dubbed "Treasures From the Sea." You'll find young and old stopping over to collect the treasures from the sea...in what has become known as "The Sanibel Stoop." 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.
