    Go shelling an hour before low tide and up to about an hour after low tide. Full moon days are good too!

    If you come here during high season, stay late and go to dinner on the island or go shopping. Huge traffic lines begin around 3pm and go to 7pm.

    Dress in pedal pushers, bring a light jacket or sweater and a picnic lunch. Sit on the beach and let (Calgon) take you away.

    If you are rushing on #Sanibel slow down look around. Enjoy nature for its undisturbed beauty & not for what man has made it into.

    Shelling is best within an hour of low tide near a full moon. But what you find also depends on effort plus luck. Enjoy the journey.

    Il Cielo is perfect for a romantic dinner. Fabulous food and service. Done inside or outside. Cloud 9 is downstairs and is more casual with a similar menu with smaller portions. Also has free wifi!

    Tons of seashells on the pretty beaches. Plus, most of the island is a nature preserve and you can bike, hike, and see amazing birds —and alligators! -Deputy Art Director

    The best shelling is at low tide. Many sand dollars out at the second bar.
