Collecting Echoing Conches all over the Golden Archipelago will give you various rewards including a new summer skin for Barbara. Below are the locations for all the Echoing Conch in Genshin Impact.
How to Unlock the Golden Archipelago

You will receive a quest called "Mysterious Islands: Journey to the Unknown" and need to complete this quest to unlock and explore the Golden Archipelago Area.
How to Collect Echoing Conch
The Echoing Conch can be found all over the Golden Archipelago. You will notice a Conch Icon on your minimap when exploring the islands. Go to these Conch Icons and you will find the Echoing Conch. Collecting the Echoing Conch will play a specific voice line, telling the story of the people who went to the Island.
