Shell Key Review
If you want to find the most pristine beach possible without heading to some remote outpost, this is your best bet. The shuttle to this seemingly remote paradise runs out of Pass-A-Grille. You can catch it most days at 10 am, noon, and 2 pm. If you do, expect some amazing snorkeling, shelling, and bird-watching. You can also kayak or canoe here from a launch near Fort DeSoto. Overnight camping is allowed here in the part of the island not designated as a bird sanctuary. Watch for rip currents when swimming, as they can be pretty strong. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; swimming; walking.
