this beach is splendid. our cottage was literally steps away. the gulf waters are warmer and calmer which will appeal to those who may be put-off by the more turbulent and frigid ocean (that's me for sure....) captiva is known for its shelling. there are an abundance of them which is not the case everywhere. if we did not have other plans for the weekend I could easily have spend all my time shelling with my girlfriends. we walked for miles then wound up at the mucky duck for lunch...and walked back again. a perfect day. best beach ever !
