Bowman's Beach, Florida


Sanibel Island is a beautiful 20 mile long barrier island off Fort Myers. The development of the island has been low-key, unlike some other areas of the gulf coast.

Bowman's beach is one of the best beaches on the island. Warm gulf waters lap up to fine white sands.

Take a swim in the clear sea, walk along the shore, or bask in the sunshine. If it gets too hot, find a shady spot in the greenery behind the beach. There are some useful facilities, such as restrooms, showers, water fountains, and picnicing tables.

If you've failed to find any good shells at the beach, the nearby Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum is worth a visit to inspire you to keep looking. You'll love the Hall of Shells, laid out in a spiral, just like a nautilus shell.

Directions: take Hwy 867 south westwards out of Fort Myers. Cross the bay. Continue along 869 for about 8 miles. Make a left onto Bowman Beach Road (the Beach park is well signed).

Why in 100 Best?

Don't rush home early, because it's well worth staying on a little longer at the beach to watch a glorious sunset.
