  • You pay $4 an hour to park and there was construction equipment working the whole time, leveling out the beach after the tide. So not relaxing or enjoyable at all.  more »
  • One of the best places to shell on the island that we have found. Morning shell hunting is the best.  more »
  • I have been coming to Sanibel and Captiva for years and never miss going to Blind Pass to shell. The abundance of shells here is a mind blower. It is also a great place for the sunset.  more »

  • Small but good place to shell. Hit this early in the morning before daylight for best results.
  • Might be nice if parking were available. We've tried unsuccessfully to stop here many times.
  • Shells, shells, shells for days! Nice clean beach!
  • One of the best beaches for shelling.
