A seven mile long undeveloped island, the Shell Island, runs east to west between the St. Andrew Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The coastal scrub forest, an inland lake, and the beautiful sand dunes, make this island the ideal home for nesting birds, deer, and various forms of sea creatures including ghost crabs, green sea and loggerhead turtles. When you visit this island you have an opportunity to see Florida in its most natural state. Since Shell Island boasts a natural environment, there are no restrooms, eateries, or picnic tables here. So when you do visit this island, come prepared and while leaving ensure that you have taken everything, even the trash. This island was named after the abundant shells found here and is a favorite spot of visitors as well as locals.
