There is no one who enjoys Blind Pass and Turner Beach more than I do, but unless you enjoy the sound of a droning ship's engine idling, wait until the dredging project is finished. I was just there on Tuesday, April 17. I thought I had read that the dredging project was completed, but I found the dredging ship still... More

Blind Pass Beach and Bowman Beach are both on Sanibel Island. We tried to go to Blind Pass Beach in the evening but the parking lot was full so we ended up at Bowman Beach. Bowman was covered in shells.. nothing like we have ever seen before... The sunset was beautiful and it was low tide so the kids could... More

When to Sanibel to see the sunset, paid the $6 for the causeway then found that the beach car parks charged a staggering $4 an hour fee. On the south side of Blind Pass beach are a couple of restaurants who have a single large car park which is free to patrons. Had a couple of beers & snacks at... More

During our little 6 night stay on Sanibel I became quite addicted to shelling. We felt we hit the mother lode when we went to the Captiva side of Blind Pass - WOW!!!

Go early for the best shelling and available parking. We had a beautiful day but the parking lot was mobbed and so was the beach.

It is a nice beach, per say (like any other beach ... water and sand). But, the fact that there is SO much fishing going on in the area, it makes it a bit concerning for walking, & getting in the water due to lost hooks, line, bait ... et cetera. I also find that the island powers that be... More

I prefer Bowman's Beach, but Blind Pass Beach is another good location for enjoying the sun and shells on Sanibel.

We visited the Beach twice on this visit, once for a sunset walk and then for an afternoon in the sun. The parking lot is easy to get into and while the bathrooms are under construction, they did provide Porta potties which were in decent shape. The brach was beautiful and there were tons of shells and sharks teeth to... More
