This store has all kinds of trinkets, beach items, clothing, souvenirs, etc, practically none of which is made locally- most of the shells are imported from the Phillipines. But anyhow, this is a good place to see what's available. There are a few other similar stores, and all are owned by the same company. In fact, if you drive in on Rt 100, the main warehouse is just E. of Los Fresnos and has a retail store as well. The owners have the habit of creating large scale shells and seascapes made out of fiberglass and resins in front of their buildings.
There are many gift shops in Port Isabel, and we visited several of them. In our opinion Treasure Island was just a step above the others we saw. It is in a spacious new facility in front of Gabriella's Ristorante Italiano.
What to buy: Gifts, T-Shirts, Souvenirs, Candles, Oil Paintings, Home Decor, Resort Wear and Natutical Gifts.
