Shired Island

Posted in Gulf Coast on April 3rd, 2013

Part of the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge, the Shired Island Boat Ramp & Trail provide access to the Gulf, shoreline fishing, and a short trail to a 7,000 year-old archaeology site. You’ll want to bring your camera.

For anglers without vessels, the ample sea wall provides plenty of shore-fishing opportunities. There are no nearby stores or tackle shops, so come prepared.

After enjoying the walk out to the point, you’ll see millions and millions of sun-bleached shells. Ancient cultures of fishing people discarded their meal debris (oysters, clams, scallops, fish bones, etc) where they ate. Millennia of this accumulation gave height to the island that was once merely a mudflat at the edge of the Gulf.

Please, stay on the beach and leave the island interior to the wildlife. Enjoy a day of discovery at your National Wildlife Refuge.
