We went to Bowman's after many locals recommended it for the shells. We tried to go two separate evenings but storms kept us away. We ended up going on the morning of the third day. The beach was beautiful but we were bit up within seconds. Even my mom who applied bug spray was bitten on the few places she did not spray (i.e tips of her elbows). The visitor center said that the bugs are especially fierce after a storm which is what happened the two nights before. The shells were ok. It is definitely worth a stop if visiting Sanibel but apply bug spray and take more with you.
