Located off the northern tip of Ft Myers Beach, this has a beautiful park area with a boardwalk to the beach, a park area and picnic tables with grills. Great for family portraits or a beach day to get away from the crowds. However parking is limited.

Just by looking at the location on Google maps I thought this was going to be an over-the-top beach. It was nice bout it does sit at the entrance to a channel so there is a lot of boat activity. I only saw one good looking woman. Take your own food and drink (no alcohol beverages allowed - but I... More

Love this beach at the end of Ft Myers Beach. Pay parking and a nice boardwalk to get to the beach. Very quiet and peaceful and great views of the sunset! Had a nice time looking for shells here!

This beach is located on the northern tip of Fort Myers Beach. I appreciate the fact that it is not located among the hotels and bars along the beach and so it is quiet and natural. I see dolphin almost every time I visit this beach and the water is beautiful.

This is one of our favorite beaches in Fort Myers. From the parking lot, there is a wooden walkway bordered with palm trees. Picture perfect. Because Bowditch is at the very end of the road, so there aren't as many people. I have often seen dolphins, and even manatees have been spotted. There are clean restrooms a short walk away....
