BOWDITCH POINT REGIONAL PARK
Bowditch Point Park is a nice, clean beach and inland park located at the north tip of Estero Island. If you’re coming from the mainland on San Carlos Blvd, drive over the bridge to the island and turn right at your first opportunity and head to the very end of the road and you’ve arrived.
There is plenty of parking normally (although you must pay at the meter) unless there is an event happening.
The beach has recently been significantly widened so it is beautiful and wraps all the way around the end of the island. There are restroom facility, snack stand and picnic tables at the park. You can also rent kayaks or other activities.
