It is extremely famous in this region of Florida. You will find the sandbars, a bunch of them, many beautiful seashells get flung in this area, and it is oh, so relaxing. A must see.

Lovely beach to stroll and seek out shells, we unfortunately arrived to late in the tide chart and did not find as many as we had hoped to find. Best time to shell is low tide. Pay for parking by the hour.

This is a beautiful place to visit. Shelling is great. The other tourists (Christmas, 2015) were family oriented, as we were. Peaceful, calm, rejuvenating!

Less people, all natural, wild life, shelling, a dolphin here and there, boats passing by, the sun on your face, shells in your bag, and a big smile on your face. Yea, that's Captiva Pass.
