If you're looking for a fun and inexpensive hobby, shelling is the perfect choice. With a bag or bucket to store your finds, a shell identification guide, and a great beach, you can start collecting shells in no time. Florida is home to some of the best beaches for shelling, including the Ten Thousand Islands, Sanibel Island, Tigertail Beach, South Beach on Marco Island, Cedar Key, Caladesi Island State Park, Captiva Island and Shell Island near Panama City Beach. Navarre Beach and Marco Island are great spots for finding sea glass as well as shells.
Captiva Island is part of a chain of barrier islands off the southwest coast of Florida and is known for its white sand beaches. Augustine Beach and Daytona Beach don't offer the same selection or number of shells. If you're looking for peace and quiet or unique shells, Cedar Key is the perfect beach town for your Florida vacation. Palmetto Beach is popular for its special shells such as sand dollars and augers. Honeymoon Island State Park in Dunedin is an ideal beach to appreciate the natural beauty of Florida.
The island's sugar-white sand beach and crystal clear waters provide a unique opportunity to enjoy a Florida beach without distractions. Fort De Soto has several beaches where you can find incredible shells such as lightning snail shells and sand dollars. North Beach is the best spot for shelling, while South Beach or Tigertail Beach are great options if you're not hiking. After responsibly picking up your keepsake shells on the beach, you can make incredible crafts with them to remember your beach vacation at Flagler Beach. Caladesi Island State Park in Dunedin is another great spot for shelling enthusiasts.
If you're looking for accommodation, Beverly Beach Camptown offers beachfront camping in your motorhome right on Flagler Beach.
