I read so much about Blind Pass Beach on various sites through Pinterest, my expectations were high. We were very focused on going to Blind Pass during low tide because the photos I'd seen led me to believe that there would be shells everywhere. The...More

This beach was eroding due to a sub-tropical storm and subsequent rainfall in early June. Sadly, many of the sea turtle nests had washed away with the storm as well. The shelling was fantastic, both on the beach and at about shoulder height in the...More

This was a BEAUTIFUL beach... but..... not the safest. Most of the beach was eroding. The waters were really rough (during May) and there is a pretty big drop off about 2ft into the water! Also this is a different sand... VERY difficult to get...More

I was recommended to go here for shelling. You pay $5.00 an hour to park! The shells were not special, you have to becare for the riptides. And there is alot of people in a small area.

Just the best place to see the sunset. Bring your own cooler and chairs and watch the sun go down . The parking is small so get there early .

Smaller beach that is split between Blind Pass. Second side on way to Sanibel is limited parking (SO GET THERE EARLY), but has a small cove that traps some of the nicest Conch Shells you will EVER see!

First visit in May, and the water was a perfect, crystal-clear, turquoise color. We bought snorkeling gear and snorkeled for 3 days. Clearest water is leading up to high tide. Beautiful shells, some pretty fish and even a pod of stingray swam by!

With this, my third visit to Blind Pass on Sanibel Island, I can be thankful for prior visits. The dredging has been completed and has fulfilled its purpose; they have been successful in saving precious private real estate. Good news for them- terrible for shell...More

Limited parking, so get there early. Didn't find a lot, but there were a number of people already there when we arrived. Needed a good storm to replenish the shells.

the shells here are great. We took a walk and looked through the piles of shells and found some nice ones. Lots of people there fishing and sunbathing. I recommend this place for a nice walk

You can call "Island Taxi", which will run from the airport to wherever you want to go at including Blind Pass. Just call and ask them how much it would be.

Shelling is usually good all year, but keep in mind that one day you might find a ton of shells at a given beach and nothing the next day. The two most popular beaches are Lighthouse and Blind Pass. It's best to get a tide... More

May be a bit late on this-sorry! South seas island resort is nice if you prefer a resort type place to stay. A bit pricy, but plenty of amenities to keep everyone busy.
