Don't listen to those who say you're not really hearing the ocean when you press a seashell to your ear. It doesn't matter what the true explanation is. You know that a seashell picked up during a beach walk—one chosen shell among innumerable others—represents an entire world of aquatic wonder. It's been home to a series of remarkable creatures, made journeys across the oceans, and holds in its curves and crevices the sounds of its voyages. Consider reservations at hotels in Edisto Beach, SC your ticket to one of nature's greatest symphonies.
Edisto Beach, a tiny town on the coast of Edisto Island, is a prime destination for shell collecting, an activity you might not have previously penciled into your itinerary. Spend some time scanning for seashells—some colorful, some sun-bleached—and discover the meditative calm that comes when you shift your focus from your own world to that of the myriad tiny creatures that make their lives where the ocean meets the land. Your treasure hunt could yield such surprises as nuggets of sea glass, jagged shark teeth, and fossils that once lived as prehistoric beasts. Before you return to Edisto Beach hotels with your haul, edit it down to just the prizes of your collection, bearing in mind the words of writer Anne Morrow Lindbergh, "One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach. One can collect only a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few."
