Arrive early....arrive early.... All parking spots are filled by 10am. Parking rate is $2 or $3 per hour. Beach gets very crowded but not in an annoying way. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available to rent along with jetskis and paddle boards other things. Not too many shells but nice clear water . One of my favorite spots to be... More

This is pretty much a perfect spot! Parking is a little tricky but be patient and you will get a spot. We were there everyday on March Break and never went without a spot. The Beach is great. Water is nice with a very clean sand bottom. There is Doc's Bar and Grill right next to the southernmost access point.... More

Get here early as the parking ($2 / hour by card or cash) gets full. The bathrooms are excellent, there's showers and shaded gazebos and the beach is long and beachy! Docs bar and restaurant is nearby and offers breakfasts and lunches, good stuff. If you want a beach, this is it as it's difficult to negotiate the access to... More

got to the beach early- just before 9, no problem with parking, very clean, bathrooms and snacks available. Lots of walkers in the morning, small shells all over, water was much clearer than Ft Myers beach the day before, could rent the usual water sports stuff & calm enough to paddle board

The beach is beautiful, the water is clear. Lots to do if you want to para-sail, wave runners etc. You can rent chairs and there is a beach bar/restaurant right on the beach called Docs.

The beach is perfect, the bathrooms are clean, hot-dogs are available. Umbrellas can be rented for 10$. Only one concern you must remember, Get there BEFORE 9am, or you will not get any parking. It's a true cut-off time that we tested all week!!!

Public parking is $2/hour and you may have to wait to get a parking space but once you are there.....lBring a couple of chairs, sit back and enjoy

We spent the day at this beach in February. It's a small but very nice beach. It has clean, modern restrooms and parking close to the beach. There are nice covered picnic tables. But honestly, during peak season we preferred Lovers Key State Park because there is a much larger beach, more parking and a more natural environment. If you... More

Parked nearby, short walk to the place you rent the toys. Called ahead had rented beach chairs and umbrellas all set for us. This beach has everything you need for a great day, food, parasailing, jet skis etc.

Loved the proximity of the beach to hotels in Bonita Springs! Disliked the parking situation... need to get to the beach very early to find a parking spot!
