Searching for Clearwater Beach Shells

If you’re searching for seashells down by the Clearwater Beach seashore, you’ll definitely find some! But to find the best Clearwater Beach seashells, you’ll have to know where to search!

If you’re walking along Clearwater Beach with your toes in the water, you’ll find some shells. But to find larger shells and unique shells, it’s best to head towards North Clearwater Beach. South Clearwater Beach is where the majority of large hotels and resorts are located. This makes south beach more crowded and more people are picking up the same shells you’re looking for.

So if you’re searching for shells, walk north past Pier 60 and head past the area of the beach that has all the Clearwater Beach Lifeguard Towers. You’ll walk past the beachfront restaurants, hotels, resorts, and beachfront condominiums. Once you’re passed this area, you’ll be walking in front of some beautiful beachfront homes. This area of Clearwater Beach the sand doesn’t stretch as far back. It becomes more narrow and much less crowded! This area of North Clearwater Beach will be less populated increasing your chance of finding some truly beautiful and unique shells.

The further north you walk, the truer this becomes! You can actually walk all the way to Caladesi Island State Park! You’re guaranteed to find some unique shells here! This is the area where the photo of the shells hanging in the tree came from! It is a long walk though. If you’re not up for the long walk, you can also drive through Dunedin and out to Honeymoon Island. Honeymoon Island is also a great beach for finding shells, and there’s a ferry that will take you from Honeymoon Island to Caladesi Island.

Another great location for finding Clearwater Beach shells is actually just across the Sand Key Bridge. If you take Gulf Boulevard from South Clearwater Beach towards Sand Key, you’ll find Sand Key Park on your right side just after crossing over Clearwater Pass.

Combine searching for seashells with visiting Winter the dolphin at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium! In addition to the aquarium, you can take a Sea Life Safari Boat Tour! During this tour you’ll cruise through the intracoastal waters surrounding Clearwater Beach, learning about dolphins, sea birds and other marine life as you go! The boat will also stop at a shell island providing a great opportunity to find some Clearwater Beach seashells!
