Beautiful, white sand beach where you can collect all the shells you like and take some great pics on the rocks. Both sides are great for shelling, both Sanibel and Captiva. Very picturesque spot.

The picture shows a bunch of shells, this is not always. Stormy weather before or high seas can help.

Not time of day, but time of tide. Many prefer low tide.
