I love the fact that it was white sand and full of many shells. It was not crowded and not too far from their parking lot. I cant wait to go back! Parking is $2/hr.

Lots of small shells. Beautiful day. $2 an hour to park. I loved Sanibel and walking on Bowmans beach. My kids did say they prefer the beach at Navarre Beach.

We visited July 15th. The kids had a blast & we found a ton of shells! We had planned on visiting the beach by the lighthouse but couldn't finding a parking spot so we ended up at Bowman's Beach. We were not disappointed!! The kids (ages 3 & 5) were more interested in all of the shells than digging in the sand. The beach was clean & not too crowded. We didn't bring any snacks & not enough drinks so our visit was cut a little short.

this beach was very pretty natural wise. I enjoyed the water & the sand, although a little crowded we enjoyed our time at sanibel but it's a beach I wouldn't go back to.
