Sanibel Island

Sanibel Island: Bowman's Beach beach restroom water picnic tables shower

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.
Getting there:
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.  Please see the following link for current parking rates in Sanibel's public lots.
