Shelling in Southwest Florida

Many people come to the area for one reason only – the incredible shelling. Southwest Florida beaches produce spectacular specimens because the currents bring shells from the Caribbean to local shores. The wide continental shelf provides a gently sloping incline that allows many shells to arrive unscathed. And warm Gulf waters provide ample opportunity for the creatures to reproduce. Find horse conchs, calico scallops, banded tulips, starfish, corkscrew-shaped augers, sand dollars, the rare lion's paw and the rarer Junonia shell among hundreds of others. Just keep your eyes on the sand.
