What is it? Sanibel Island’s beaches are known for their above average abundance of beautiful, intact seashells. On some parts of the shore it’s tough to see the sand through the layers of them – making it easy to understand why the area attracts passionate fans of ‘shelling’ the world over.
Why go? Whether you are looking to come home with a giant conch to add to your home decor or simply love combining your beach strolls with treasure-hunting, Sanibel is worth a trip.
