Bowman's Beach ParkSanibel, FL
Bowman’s Beach Park is a very nice beach and one of the best public beaches on Sanibel. It has lots of amenities and is also great for shelling. It’s a great place to visit if you’re in the area.
Bowman’s Beach Park is located on the island of Sanibel in the Ft. Myers area. Sanibel is a very popular tourist destination and is one of the most well-known locations in Florida. Despite it’s proximity to the coast it’s kind of a hassle to drive there. The roads to the island from I-75 are windy and not as simple as you’d think. Once on the island, you’ll be greeted with lots of traffic but it’s a beautiful drive.
The beach is very nice and expansive. It’s a popular beach so it tends to be more crowded than other beaches in the area. That being said, there’s plenty of space to spread out and the sand is nice but Shelly. Those shells are one of the reasons this beach is so popular. Sanibel is known for is fantastic shelling and Bowman’s Beach is pretty good. The water clarity is always milky for some reason. Yet, just north of Captiva it becomes crystal-clear. Go figure!
A big reason why Bowman’s Beach Park is so popular is because it’s loaded with amenities to make your day more enjoyable. Boardwalks, beach ramps, plenty of parking ($5+ to park), showers, restrooms, a playground, and picnic area make it a great beach to visit if you have kids.
Bowman’s Beach is a great beach and is the perfect place to go if you’re in the Ft. Myers area.
