How To Find The Best Seashells on Fort Myers Beach

June 17th, 2014

Fort Myers Beach Seashells

We all know southwest Florida is a beautiful destination, but the treasures found on the area’s beaches make it a truly special place. Southwest Florida is home to some of the best shelling in the world. The beaches of Naples, Bonita Springs, Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island are covered with seashells of all shapes, sizes, and colors. It’s a shelling paradise! These treasures are just waiting for you to scoop them up.

Collecting seashells is one of our guest’s favorite activities. Guests can enjoy time on our beautiful white-sand beaches and will return home with fantastic souvenirs that they can give to family or use for decoration.

The SunStream Beach Team spent some time on south Fort Myers Beach with the internet’s top shelling expert, Pam Rambo of iLoveShelling.com. We brought her down from Sanibel Island to the beach located directly behind our sister properties to the south, Pointe Estero Beach Resort and GullWing Beach Resort, to educate our guests and followers on the tips and tricks of shelling. Watch as we learn how to find amazing seashells on Fort Myers Beach!

I wanted to be sure to let you know the excellent job that you and EVERYONE at DiamondHead did for our entire stay.

June 10th, 2014

Johnny,

I wanted to be sure to let you know the excellent job that you and EVERYONE at DiamondHead did for our entire stay. From the minute we arrived, the bell staff, front desk and everyone else we encountered was pleasant and extremely competent. What could have been an extremely stressful time, was for the most part, all about relaxation. Of course the facilities were top notch and the views amazing.

Enclosed is a small token of our appreciation for everyone there at DiamondHead. These are world famous jumbo jelly beans from The Wakarusa Dime Store. They are of course in Notre Dame colors. Could you please be sure that the folks in the Bell Service area receive some.

Once again, thanks and we look forward to staying there again.

Randy Cooper and family
