Big Shell and Little Shell Beach on Padre Island are where several Gulf currents meet and deposit shells and other debris on the beach. Little Shell is influenced more by currents from the north which generally deposit smaller shells on the beach. Big shell is influenced by currents from the south which deposit slightly larger shells. Little Shell runs from about the 12 to 18 mile marker and Big Shell runs from the 18 to the 30.
