The 'best' beach varies day by day. I'd try Blind Pass first, then Bowman's beach, and Lighthouse Beach.

If it's calm, and you can stand the water, stand in the water tight where waves retreat to and you'll see the shells rolling in the surf's edge. It's best to work with a net and wear polarized sunglasses and a hat with a deep brim - or ball cap - to shade your eyes. Do NOT try that when the surf is up. Only where the Gulf is VERY calm. Stay OUT of the water and DO NOT turn your back to the waves if it isn't a still day. On the upside, a higher surf has more shells.
