SANIBEL ISLAND, Fla - Bowman's beach on Sanibel Island is named one of the top ten secluded beaches in America according to

Editors also named beaches in California and Hawaii, North Carolina, Georgia, New York, Maine and Virginia.

When it comes Bowman's Beach editors say, "The secret's out about the beauty of Sanibel Island’s linen-white sand beaches – situated about 25 miles southwest of Fort Myers, Florida – so you won’t be alone in searching for a stretch of a secluded U.S. beach to call your own. But that’s just what you’ll get when you leave your car and make the quarter-mile walk to Bowman’s Beach, Sanibel’s most peaceful place. The island is well-known as one of the best shelling spots in the country, but you’ll find little competition here. There’s minimal development and ditto on amenities – though Bowman’s does have one perk not found on any other beach on Sanibel: barbecue grills."

The Dry Tortugas also made the top ten.
