I always love the pass - go early for better shelling!

If you are looking for shells on Sanibel- Captiva beaches this is the place. Low tide, late at night just your honey and a very bright light are all you need. Check the beaches on both sides of Blind Pass

Great place to visit by bike. Winding roads lead up to great beach spots. Very windy at times.

One of many beautiful places on Sanibel-Captiva to do so much. Of course like everything else on the island it will be driven by the tides. High tide is hard to shell but great to fish; low tide is great shelling and hard to fish. High tide is difficult and dangerous to swim...so kids and animals (dogs) beware; low tide... More

You can not drive to the other side but go to the end and check out the beach. The town is small and they have a few small restaurants in town and usually have live music with outside seating. I like the Keylime Bistro restaurant or R.C Otters restaurant. Fishing at the pass is good. Shelling is good if you... More

We daytripped here from Treasure Island. Of the many trips we took I considered this place to be overrated and not much different that the many local beaches we have in Ohio. There are better places to see and visit in Florida.
