best beach to shell on Sanibel

We are thinking of taking a day trip to Sanibel while in town. Is one beach better than another as far as shelling goes?

You might want to ask this on the Sanibel forum. I'm interested in the input on this, too.

Any beach on Sanibel is amazing for shelling. Point Ybel, where the lighthouse and pier are, has tons of shells. Captiva has great shells and nice sands. Turner beach and Blind Pass are good, too. Like I said anywhere on Sanibel is beautiful.

In my opinion all the beaches offer something different and it just depends on the day and tide which beach is better.

If it were me I would stop at the Sanibel Chamber of Commerce and get a map. It will clearly show each public beach. Parking is $2 an hour and it IS enforced. I would hit as many beaches as possible then end up on Captiva for sunset. The first time I went to Sanibel I didn't have a map and I wasted a lot of time trying to find the public beaches.
