Southwest Florida Shell Guide

sea shell

Got shells? Make the most out of shell collecting on Sanibel with the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum’s updated shell guide. It’s an online encyclopedia of 345 species of shells that have been collected on our islands and surrounding area. Search your shell by its family name and view photos and descriptions of all your shell finds.

Where’s the best place to collect shells on Sanibel? We may be a little bit biased, but we think it just may be 19 steps from your condo at Ocean’s Reach!
