Bowditch is nice, a little small but a great spot for R&R by the Gulf. Watching the boats go in and out of the pass is so much fun I could do it all day.

This beautiful park provides access to the point of the island with the unique white sands and views and Sanibel Island. We followed a dolphin down the shoreline as we walked. Very enjoyable.

Bowditch is the start of Fort Myers beach. It's always less crowded. Great for sunset viewing and just to find a quieter place. Plenty of grills and picnic tables. During peak hours parking is tight.. They do have under utilized free docks to use if...More

Very pretty spot, not crowded with a nice restroom/changing area. Had read that there were often turtles spotted here but did not see any. Nice trails and view of the channel.

Very surreal area of Ft. Myers. A must for those who enjoy nature and enjoy a beautiful beach walk. Great place to jog to and offers beautiful views of the gulf and Sanibel Island. Pack a picnic and find seclusion!!

Before the season really gets kicked off this is a wonderful place to hang out. Unfortunately there's a very small parking lot but there is trolley service from Fort Myers Beach & others places north. It's amazing how wide and flat the beach is considering...More

As mentioned, just for parking. however the lot is very small. You might be better catching the trolley that comes in from several points in Fort Myers Beach. It seems to be roomy enough to carry all your great beach... More
