National Seashell Day
As locals, we know the joy of searching through seashells to find that perfect
lightning whelk or alphabet cone. These natural treasures have inspired us to
dedicate June 21 to celebrate the first day of summer as well as the seashells
that wash onto our shores every day of the year.

With more than 50 miles of beaches and over 400 species of seashells that often
cover the white sands, there’s no other place quite like Southwest Florida for shell
hunting. People come from all over the world to search for unbroken seashells on
our shores. In fact, Sanibel Island is known as the “Seashell Capital of the World”
because of its unique east-west orientation that brings countless seashells in
pristine condition to its white-sand beaches. It’s a great time to get out and explore.

Have a great June as we have so much to shellebrate.

Thank you for all you do to make this a wonderful destination.
