Beachcombing for Seashells

Walking the beach finding seashells and sealife


Walking along the beach picking up seashells and sealife has been enjoyed by millions of people throughout the world. There is nothing more heartwarming then watching a young child run along the beach for hours on end excitedly pointing out all of the fabulous creatures and seashells that can be found along the seashore, and gathering up seashells to listen into. With so many miles of shorelines throughout the United States and the world, all covered with nature's treasures , it would be difficult not to find this hobby enjoyable. Remember that our coastlines are an important part of the environment, so please try to leave an area as pristine as it was when you arrived, if not more so. Please do not litter and if you see someone else's trash gather and dispose of it properly. If you flip over a rock to look for specimens make sure to replace it when you are done looking. All of these tips will help to keep our shorelines a viable habitat for all.


We hope this website will be a help to people in preserving and identifying the wonderful creatures and seashells you find along the coasts.
