A great spot for shell collecting as well as for fishing. Depending on the weather the bridge over Blind Pass may or may not have water under it . However, it has a lovely beach and warm water.

I stopped here on my way back to the hotel and so glad that I did as it was a beautiful beach with he beat shells I found on the island. The parking is very hard to get so I suggest you get here early!

Shelling is great- dumps usually large amounts up here. Sit down in one spot and sort through. My 2nd favorite beach spot after Captiva Beach by Twen Waters Inn.

Have fished and Shelled here for 35+ years. It has changed very little over this period. Hurricanes have shifted it around but basically a time capsule. Worth just taking in Florida has it was before high rises and superhighways.

Beautiful, white sand beach where you can collect all the shells you like and take some great pics on the rocks. Both sides are great for shelling, both Sanibel and Captiva. Very picturesque spot.

Not time of day, but time of tide. Many prefer low tide.
