This is a pretty half-a-day getaway from PCB.... sand is as white as the rest of the beaches in the vicinity with tiny, few colorful shells everywhere on the island... it's not very crowded and there is not a lot going on here besides the beauty of blue clear water with white sands and sea shells... you've to get there by a boat - either rented or through one of the tour operators in the area...there's no eateries or restrooms on the island so go prepared.... overall its a good experience with nothing extraordinary i'd say....if there's enough space on the itinerary, this one should be included.

We loved snorkeling for Sand Dollars, Sea Urchins, Clams, shells and more! The beach is beautiful and the water is clean and clear! You could see to the bottom!

I visited Shell Isand when I want parasailing. It was beautiful, just as the rest of Panama City beach and quiet at the end of September. I would suggest Shell Island to any visitor.

We rode the ferry boat to shell Island and saw several Dauphins jumping and even a stingray under the water. The Island was beautiful and less crowded than the beach area where we spent the night. Riding the boat with the wind in your hair was very relaxing and was not very expensive. You can even use coupons.
