For those planning a vacation to Captiva or Sanibel Island and hoping to return home with the best seashells ever, be sure to check out Bowman’s Beach on Sanibel Island. When you stay in our Blind Pass Condominiums you won’t be far from beach combing to your heart’s content. Bowman’s Beach offers some of the most remote beachfront in the area andf the shelling at this location is outstanding. Plenty of parking awaits at $4/hr. and is available from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Low tide will provide the best and most shells. Come early to have the beach to yourself and for the very best selection of shells.
Bowman’s Beach is a great place to picnic and swim with the family. There’s a large picnic area, grills, outside showers and a bathroom. The beach is about a ¼ mile walk from the parking lot and offers pristine white sands.
You’ll see things from the beach that you just won’t see otherwise unless you’re on a boat. Watch for the manatees and dolphins as you cross the bridge on the walk to the beach. Be sure to check out the awesome views of the Gulf of Mexico as well.
Grab the kids, pack a lunch and plenty of liquids, and don’t forget the buckets or bags to put your shells in. Treasures like these can’t be purchased in any store. These come wrapped up in the full experience of vacationing on Sanibel Island, Florida.
