Sanibel Island: Bowman's Beach
Bowman's Beach offers some of the Sanibel's best shelling,
and some of the island's most remote beach space.
There is a quarter mile or so walk from the parking lot to the beach,
in which you'll cross a wooden bridge over freshwater.
Any pets on Bowman's Beach must be leashed, and you must clean up after them.
Watch for the signs along Sanibel-Captiva Road
at mile 4.8 (based on the mile markers along the road). You'll cross San-Cap
and follow Bowman's Beach Road for 1/10 mile to the parking lot.
There is a large parking lot, including a few spaces that will accommodate RVs
or trailers. Parking costs $2 per hour, from 7AM to 7PM.
