Lovely beach!

Lovely beach with cool sand and warm gulf waters. Great place to relax and go for a dip. Never too crowded and plenty of room to lay out.

This was the closest beach to our vacation rental. Parking was often hard to find and we were not there in peak season. I can't imagine it during peak season. The beach was nice and long, but the shells were actually a bit hard on your feet. We checked out several beaches in the area and found they were all... More

We came here in mid-August with a specific mission: find sand dollars, eat cake and watch a sunset! We parked up at Bay 7 just before sunset which happened to perfectly coincide with low tide. We walked north up the beach to look for stranded (white) sand dollars, as local legend suggests they can be found here. I found 50... More

This a very clean and beautiful beach. The water and sand are clean and the entire area is just a tribute to the Bonita Springs locale and all who come here to visit, live and have fun.

This is by far one of the best beaches I've ever been to. The beach was clean and not overly crowded. The water was clear and beautiful. I'll definitely be going back. The kids had a blast looking for shells.

Bonita beach is superb. The barefoot area is great with food and restrooms. You are guaranteed to see gopher tortoises and it's a great walking beach. If you walk towards wiggins pass you often find some neat shells. We live in that area and go often.

Fun time at the beach, great things to do like renting jetski or paddle boards. Water wasn't as clear as east Florida beaches though and lots of jellyfish.

We enjoyed our day at this beach. You must pay for parking, but that's okay. The sand is not bad, its not deep. It appears to be a little harder which is fine for walking and pulling a beach cart. The water wasn't too rough. It was warm, though. There's public restrooms and a restaurant close by where you can... More
