If you are looking for a more quiet and relaxed beach this is it. Picnic tables, bathroom and Gopher Tortoises all through out the park pathways.

This park has it all. It has facilities for all that you need to be at the beach. You just have a fee for parking but does not beak the beank. It is at the north end of the sland so it is peaceful and beautiful.

During our exploratory trip of the Naples-Fort Myers area, we decided to check this little beach out. You can see Sanibel Island from it, and it was heavily crowded. We were able to walk a nice distance in both directions.

We stay next door at the vacation villas and the park is always clean and neat. Many weddings take place here off the park on the beach. Great place to come and watch the sun set absolutely beautiful

This is a very clean space with restrooms and short, very easy trails through light vegetation to some of the prettiest views. The beach at this point is wide and very gradual grade. Great place to watch the sunset

If you don't want to put up with the crowds on Fort Myers Beach, try Bowditch Point Park. Parking is OK but get there early in January, February, or March as it fills up fast. The beach is beautiful and quite large. Lots of room. Also great hiking trails in the park. Lots of boat traffic in the area and... More
