Patricia Blackstock. My husband and I have lived in Myrtle Beach since 1998. We love living here and one of our favorite beach walks includes collecting shells and sea glass. Here are some of my recommendations. Feel free to contact me anytime with questionbs not addressed on this page.

Start your day as early as you can, before vehicles or people start tromping around. Also the earlier the better time to find shells and shark teeth is at low tide and after a big storm!

Do not touch or pick up a sand dollar. It is against the law in Myrtle Beach! (or any South Carolina beach) Remember this before you pick one up. If caught, you may have to pay a fine! So how can you tell if the sand dollar is alive or dead? Find out about it Here.

2022 Shelling and Beachcombine tips

Be sure to apply plenty of sunscreen, even on cloudy and rainy days. Also check the schedule of high and low tides before you start your beach combing day! I made mistake once and walked back to my car with wet jeans, cold shoes and freezing feet. My jeans were soaked and it was a long and miserable walk back to the State Park with my teeth chattering all the way! It only takes one time to learn this valuable lesson!

Myrtle Beach State Park is a good location, but you need to know that in advance as there is an admission fee. Check the website or call 843-238-5325 for more information. It is not as heavily populated during the week, although it does get crowded on the weekends and during tourist season. It's a beautiful State Park. If you need to purchase bait or other fishing equipment, there will be an additional charge. If you want to find really good shells, you need to get an early start, especially during tourist season.

Huntington Beach State Park (in Murrells Inlet) is another good spot for shelling and beach combing. This park is also on the the top birding sites along the East Coast. Call them for updated information. Check the website or call if you have any specific questions not answered here. Admission fee is charged. Call 843-235-8755.

Pawleys Island is not usually overcrowded, and increases your chances of finding shells that have not been disturbed (broken or cracked.) We found many shark teeth and larger shells. One day we noticed a family of starfish as they moved along the beach. It was amazing ro see! To get to Pawleys Island, head south on Rt. 17. After you pass through the town of Pawleys Island and watch for the sign that says "Causeway" Turn left on the causeway which will take you to the island. Take a right off this road, and the next (residential road) and start looking for the "free parking" sign. PARKING LOT (photo information)

Please remember It is very important that you DO NOT pick up any living sea creature. They have their lives to live.

Bull Island, inside Cape Romain National Refuge is located about 7- miles south of Myrtle Beach. Google it! See the Coastal Expeditions Bulls Island Ferry schedule for dates and information.

Shark Teeth - Everyone wants to find shark teeth to take home to take home from their Myrtle Beach vacation! Most of the teeth we find are on the small side, but shart teeth come in all sizes!

Still can't find shark teeth? Visit another beach! The Grand Strand offers 60+ miles of beach-line. I recently received an e-mail from a family member who was concerned because they could not find any shark teeth.

We exchanged some e-mail and he told me this: "This year we stayed at Kingston Plantations. In 4 days we didn't fine even one tooth. But in the morning we drove up to North Myrtle Beach and found tons of shells in just one hour."
