One minute on Shelter Island: Shell Beach

Located at the end of Oak Tree Lane in Silver Beach, Shell Beach extends for almost a mile into Shelter Island Sound.

It’s unique because it’s actually two very different beaches in the same place. 

To the north is West Neck Harbor, where the water is calm and the boats and sunbathers are plentiful. The south side is more exposed and the water is a little rougher, but the swimming is great.

The beach is home to many wildflowers and is a piping plover nesting area.

Spend a minute there with us.
