Beach Combing Tips:

*Never take live animals– return them safely back into the water. Always protect our precious marine resources for the future!

*If you find a snail shell, you can tell it’s alive if something is still in there. The shell will keep growing as the snail grows. The snail will not and cannot move to a new shell!

*The best time to go beach combing is around low tide and after storms. The best places to look are at the waters edge and the wrack line or high tide line.

*Myrtle Beach and Huntington Beach State Parks can be great places to go beach combing.

*Remember to always use a boardwalk or designated path to reach the beach and always stay off the sand dunes. Read More from the South Carolina Parks.
