In Barbados the best Shelling Beaches can be found along the eastern coastline, which is located on the Atlantic side of the island.
Although Barbados beaches aren't ideal for collecting shells you will find the occasional whole shell, but generally broken shells are what you would find.
Shells can also be found seasonally on some west coast beaches especially during the hurricane season or after rough seas.
What you will find a lot of on the beach is sea glass, in all shapes and colours.
Conch Shells are very popular on the island as home decoration and as a horn at cultural events and sporting events. To acquire one you will need to purchase it from a conch fisherman, a free diver or a scuba diver, some beach vendors and souvenir stores also sell them.
Below you will find a list of the best beaches for Collecting Shells in Barbados.
