“Basically this is a bridge connecting Sanibel Island to the mainland.”

Great Calusa Blueway
Reviewed 7 October 2016

The bridge hops a few small pieces of land where you can stop and picnic, fish, or relax. The toll is only on the lanes headed to the island and it costs 5 dollars to cross it with a two axle vehicle.
It's pretty but again it's basically a bridge.

This beach is not Bowman's but many locals come here to watch the sunset, no paid parking here. Can be a bit rocky to walk in the water, but if you just want to get your feet wet not bad at all.

Although we did really enjoy the scenic drive, it was costly to go onto the island then pay the parking at the beaches which were sort of difficult to navigate for a first time explorer. We did find some nice shells. The water was mucky and still. Not my favorite.

This is the most beautiful drive and it rivals the 7 Mile bridge to the Florida,Keys. You can stop along the way and simply pull off the road to enjoy the scenery, fish or have a picnic.

We wanted to go kayaking on the blueway, but were really disappointed when we finally got there. There didn't seem to be anything to see, except the mangroves you can see from shore. The marina we stopped at for information, that was listed on the map, didn't even know what the blueway was!
