Shell Hunting

3 Things to do this Summer on your Sanibel Island Vacation sanibel island shells

Sanibel Island is known as the best beach for shelling because of the amounts of shells you will find here. We understand that this is a high activity that anyone can do, including the kids. We have a few pointers on how to see some of the best and most unique shells on the beach. Be sure to get some mesh bags for shelling or mesh beach bags. Then you can comb through the shells you will find on the beach. Also, if you have your swimsuit on, then go on into the water some and dig a little bit. We promise that you will find some unique shells in the water and some of the best. Just have a good time as a family looking for some great shells to take home.

Painting the Shells

Another fun activity that a lot of locals and visitors love to do is painting the shells they find. One way that you can paint the shells is by grabbing some sharpies and having some rubbing alcohol. Color the shells with designs or just coloring them a little bit with different colors. Then you will want to grab a little bit of rubbing alcohol and drip some of it onto the shells. This will not only make a fresh design but will give each shell a unique look to it. Another way you can paint is by using acrylic paint and adding a protective coat onto the shell to make sure the design is sealed in. This is a great activity to do on a rainy day here on the island!

Take a Ride on the Water
