Sand Dollars - Click to enlarge

Sand dollars can be found on most all the beaches of Sanibel Island. They are loved by shell collectors for their intricate designs, symmetrical shape and beautiful colors.

Sand dollars most favorable living habitat is the shallow waters of beaches or shallow muddy estuaries. They like to stay at the surface or just below the surface and will “dive” to safety at a moments notice.

The sand dollars that shell hunters collect actually are the remains of a once living creature. If you do find any living sand dollars we suggest you throw them back into the tide so they my continue living.

Due to the geographic location of Sanibel Island it’s curved shape Sand Dollars ( and all other kinds of shells) wash up on our shores in great amounts! Make a reservation today at Island Inn and start your collection of sand dollars today!
