The Rest and Relax Place
Shell Point is located on the northern edge of the Apalachee Bay, approximately 30 miles south of Tallahassee. Most notable for its beaches, Shell Point Beach was previously privately owned. After a petition by local groups to the state of Florida in 1995, the beach is funded by grants from the state and managed by the Wakulla County Department of Parks and Recreation. With covered areas and picnic tables, Shell Point is not only a place to enjoy the beach but also a picnic.
