In some Caribbean Islands such as Guadeloupe and in Martinique, you can find sand dollars 600m from the edge of the beach and 7 meters deep or their shells that drift to the sand on beaches where the sun bleaches them if you are lucky. Finding these magnificent creatures today are less frequent, but if you know a few secret spots, it is not uncommon to come across a few.
Sand dollars typically live in large groups on the ocean floor. They are naturally safeguarded by an exterior integument that shields them from what few predators they may encounter in their oceanic travels. Though generally found in groups, they’ve the versatility and freedom to relocate and reorient themselves at their own discretion.
As urchins, their bodies are equipped with a spine-like musculature that permits them the latitude of movement and flexibility. Whether this is done as a solo mission, with few other sand dollars, or as part of a larger migration, these creatures have no qualms leaving a situation that no longer suits or serves them.

One of the sand dollars’ most distinctive features is the poinsettia-esque outlining visible on their underbellies when turned over. The semblance this pattern bears to the Christmas flower has inspired a host of historical myths and legends about their significance.
One legend suggests that within the confines of the sand dollar’s shell are five doves, each waiting to be freed to bring goodwill and peace to the world upon the breaking of the creature’s shell. Another suggests within the sand dollar is the symbolic embodiment of God’s good will for his creation.
