Social media is full of images of beachgoers tossing handfuls of mini shells in the air, while the blue sky and turquoise water provide a breathtaking backdrop.

The shallow crystal clear waters of Shell Beach extend yards from the shoreline and are high in salt, making it easy for swimmers to float.

The cove has a large population of Fragum cockles that have no natural predators, so their shells eventually wash up on the shore creating the unique natural phenomenon.

Visitors have enjoyed the area’s summer weather year-round, with temperatures even reaching the peak of winter in the 1920s.
