Shell island is the most wonderful little spot on the gulf coast. Natural surroundings, sugar white sand and plenty of activities. You DEFINITELY want to head to Shell Island if you are anywhere near the Northwest Beaches of Florida!!!

Pet friendly and paradise! Must visit shell island and take the St Andrew Bay ferry to get there. they are pet friendly so you can take your dogs with you on the boat and to the island.

Shell Island is a big island with sand dunes. The beach is nice. We took a boat trip and it was very interesting to find out about this island. It is well worth going.

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!
