Shell Island was nice, it's one of the few beaches I have been to that is uninhabited by people. Due to the amount of rain though, there were not very many large shells to be found

If you want to get away from the hustle of the beach; then rent a boat and take a 1/2 day trip out ot the island. It's a little pricy but you don't do this everyday.

Wrote longer review under St. Andrews park. If you want to have a non manicured natural beach. Go here. I didn't find this island full of shells. Yes evidence there were bits of shells. Maybe we were there after all had been picked over we did catch the 1:30 bus but even after walking out of the sight of others still no Shelley's better then what we have been finding on hotel beach. I also found the beach a bit cluttered with trash which was sad. We picked up more plastic bottles then shells.

we live near shell island and love to go over on the boat. it is so peaceful and the waters are beautiful. the kids love exploring the island on the bay and the ocean side to find different critters. be sure to pack and umbrella, sunscreen, and lots of water. also be advised that there is no bathroom unless you come on one of the commercial boats. they let you re enter the boat to potty.
