The beach is a bit crowded at the access points but once you walk down a bit further it gets less crowded. There are jet skis, kayaks, and other water activities available for purchase near the main access point. You can certainly have a relaxing day here! One downfall is that there is only one restaurant - Doc's Beach House.... More

Very nice beach and not overly crowded. Easy access and short walks to beach area. Take your beach chairs and lunch and spend the day! Very enjoyable!

After circling the few private lots to park, we finally found the beach which was quite crowded but very nice.

You may need to take a little time to find a parking spot but the nice beach with convenient changing facilities is worth the effort. Parking fee is $2/ hour. In my opinion the best time of day to go is the late afternoon when it is a little less crowded and the sun a little less intense on this... More

There are many access points to this typical beach. Usually very busy and lines with hotels and condos. A very long beautiful beach but kind of sterile and busy. Parking a two dollars and hour is certainly reasonable and you never far from your car.

Beautiful and not-too crowded beach. Parking spaces are difficult to find - takes time and patience - not to mention circling around them several times. Nice and soft sand - not commercialized. Comfy chairs for rent.

Nice beach, parking $2 per hour and they take credit cards. Restrooms available and clean. Outside showers to clean off sand. Parking can get hard as the lot is not that large.

I gave this rating, not for the beach itself, but for the limited access. I grew up in Bonita Springs and spent many days at this beach. I left the area in 1982, but return often and while I care nothing for going to the beach during the day, I have always enjoyed walking the beach at night. On my... More

Enjoy this beach very much! Great facilities on site! Shelling is very good and enjoy walking the beach! Parking is minimal, either go early or around 4pm when people are leaving for the day!
