Bowman Beach is the perfect place for sunsets. One of the only truly West facing beaches on Sanibel. There are picnic tables, drink machines, bathroom facilities and paid parking for cars or RVs. There are many miles of beach to the of South Bowman's that you could walk to or run on. it is very quiet as there are very few condo complexes on the West end. Go 2 miles north to the Blind Pass beach and channel. One unique feature of Bowman's is the bayous. Enjoy the wildlife from the bridge or a kayak. You may see egrets, manatee or even a lazy gator. Shelling at Bowman's is the same as all Sanibel beaches; weather, tides, patience, a keen eye and a willingness to come early or to get wet all play into what you mind find while doing the Sanibel Stoop.
