Bowman's Beach

Beach in Sanibel Island

Bowman's Beach is the quintessential Sanibel beach, a bright dollop of coast with soft white sand, supplied with a playground and excellent facilities. It’s remote in the sense that it rarely feels crowded, except perhaps at the height of tourist season. Alphabet cones, angel wings, lightning whelks and horse conch shells all glitter on the powder. Excellent views to the west make for magical sunsets.

'No nude sunbathing' signs are meant to dissuade scofflaws from doing just that at the distant west end.
