“Great Beach Area”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Decided to take a walk from Pink Shell Resort down to the Bowditch Point Park area. The wildlife, the boats, the sun setting, and shelling made me love this beach area. September is a great time of year to go to FMB beach since the crowds have all but disappeared. Walking the beach a few weeks ago, only a couple people were seen; otherwise solitude.

“Shhhhh. Awesome but do not tell”
Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

Please do not this secret out. Perfect quiet secluded. Quiet trails. Shady benches and sunny beach and views. What more could you want but to have it kept a secret.

“Peace and quiet”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

this park has great nature trails and plenty of open beach area to sit down and relax awhile.
there are not many people on this end of the beach so it usually quiet and peaceful.
You can watch all the boats and ships coming out of the bay to the gulf. It is also a great place to watch the sunset on the gulf side!

“Great place to park and beach”
Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

Very nice park with well-kept amenities. Tends to be less populated and has lots of trails for beach breaks. The beach is terrific for this spot. Parking is $1 an hour, super great.

“The Tip of Fort Myers Beach”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Park your car for $1.00 and enjoy a few hours of natural relaxation at the tip of fort myers beach! Take some snacks, lounge chairs, some swimming gear and you have you're very own beach. You take a short nature walk and end up on a deserted beach, the sign says no swimming or fishing but many were taking a swim and fishing in the ocean. Some people were even camping?...At the turn of the beach there's a jetti, which are huge rocks -access on rocks prohibited but everyone was on top of them taking pictures of the sunset and dolphins! It's so beautiful! There are many birds walking and flying around, dolphins swimming close to shore, the pink sunset, it was gorgeous! Even though there were many people it was so tranquil and quiet, I think everyone is at "awe" of how beautiful it was. There's also bathroom facilities and showers for the public.
