Went there on a cloudy, cooler day. Perfect... crowds were down, able to drive on Periwinkle without bumper to bumper traffic. Found a parking spot... Expensive... $ 5.00 a hour plus $6.00 to cross bridge. Nice clean, bathrooms, changing rooms. Swing, play area for kids....More
Loved this beach! Good parking. Changing stations available, water to rinse off after swimming. Beautiful! Shelling was phenomenal! Would love to see umbrellas available to rent for use- my only complaint😁

It does have showers,...More
My husband and I love Bowman's Beach. A little surf so there are waves to jump over if you want to go in the water, great shelling and nice amenities (showers and bathrooms). Beach itself is pretty and clean and you can often see dolphins.
