Bowman's beach is located at the border of Sanibel and Captiva islands. It is one of the most popular beaches of both. Bowmans beach is not as sheltered as the beaches along Sanibel and thus experienced rougher surf. However it is also one of the best places to go shelling.

Sanibel Island is known for having some of the most beautiful beaches in the continental US. They are also well known for having an amazing array of shells! Don't be surprised if you come upon sea turtle nests and all kinds of wildlife on this sub tropical island!!!

If you're going to Sanibel to find shells, Bowman's Beach should be your first stop. Paid parking is available, but there is plenty of it. It's a long beach, so even on busy days you can find a quiet place to lounge. Perfect for sun, surf and shelling. The water is usually warm and clear year round, with gentle lapping Gulf surf. And the shells! Oh the shells! You're surrounded by them and could dig knee deep in shells if you wanted to. They're everywhere!

This is a long white sand nature beach just in between sanibel and Captiva. The beach is great at least for families with preteens and adults, it was not crowded at around eight in the evening. The normal evening thunder storm was rolling in at a little past eight, it was a few hundred meters to the car park at least so managed to get wet again.
There are two parking lots, outside showers to just wash away the salt, toilettes that are open until 6PM and roofless change rooms.
Great place to go.
