“Shells Shells and more shells”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This was a terrific day at the beach. Though the trek to the beach was long, it was worth it. The tide was coming in when we were there and each wave deposited hundreds of terrific shells. Scallop, Turkey Wing, Horse conch, drills, cats paws, cone shells, a couple of tiny very very old sharks teeth, and other varieties of shells and interesting flotsam. A great place to go to the beach.

Bowman's Beach is easily accessible and has a gorgeous sunset. We always visit that beach every year when we visit Sanibel. There are plenty of beautiful shells to be found and birds to observice. My family loves this beach!

“Great spot to head to the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Great beach spot, especially at the end of the day, lots of birds and wildlife and a really secluded spot.

We brought our flashlights and toured the beach for a shells after dark. It was a short walk over the bridge, and we enjoyed the moonlit beach walk but didnt find many shells.

“Best Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Our family goes out to Bowmans Beach often...we are FL residents and are very picky about where to take the family..it is quite, with beautiful sand beaches, a place for the kids to change as well as playground and BBQ areas!
