Seashell Shore, also known as Shell Beach, is a realm located in Sunrise Spring in Spyro: Year of the Dragon and the Spyro Reignited Trilogy remaster of the third game. Seals were taking the Rhynocs submarine for a spin, but accidentally crashed it. In revenge, the Rhynocs "arrested" the seals, and threw them in an underwater prison cell.


Seashell Shore serves as the beach realm for Year of the Dragon, bearing a slight resemblance to Sunny Beach from Ripto's Rage. Starting underwater with a sunken ship, you can swim to the surface to enjoy the beach. Sheila also gets in on the action by helping destroy an enemy fortress. A rhynoc named Bluto can be found in a robotic shark in a challenge portal, waiting for Spyro to challenge him. There is also a very fast chicken in the main area known to some as the Funky Chicken. Hitting it with an underwater charge will earn you a Skill Point.
