Help with a 1 day trip to Sanibel Island

I'm plannig a one day trip Sanibel Island in late March and plan on going to the beach, going to dinner and then taking the sunset cruise on Captiva Cruises. Can someone advise me where the best beach is with parking that also has a place to change clothes. Any recommendations for a good seafood/steak house would also be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Bowman's Beach, off San-Cap Rd across from Ding Darling Refuge, would probably be best suited to your needs. I'd suggest dining after the cruise as it leaves early. Try either Redfish Bluefish or Key Lime Bistro on Captiva or Doc Ford's on Sanibel at the corner of Rabbitt and San-Cap Rd.
