If you like to go for long walks on the beach, you would love shelling. Navarre Beach has become a destination for avid shell collectors, with locals and visitors finding treasures both along the shore and in shallow waters. Locally originated Facebook groups feature some of the most pristine shells collected as well as fun ways to use them as everything from Christmas ornaments to framed décor.
Though there are more types of shells in local waters than we have pages to describe, here are a few of the most common shells you might see. Take what you love and throw the rest back for the next beachgoer to discover. The magic never gets old.
