Located 20 minutes from downtown Savannah, Georgia, Tybee Island is a five-mile-long beach perfect for beachcombers. You’ll find a variety of seashells, including whelk, olive, and moon snail in a wide array of colors. For instance, the Ark shells, one of the most common bivalve shells, range from gray, dark red, orange, gold, and white. You never know where the best places will be on Tybee to find shells because of the changing tides, but oftentimes, you will find big shell deposits when walking along the sand. On calmer parts of the beach, there is a better chance of finding the more fragile shells, such as Duck Clams, Pen Shells, Razor Clams, and Angel Wings.
