Sun and shells plus some nice water

Favorite beach in Naples. They have food and rent chairs. They also rent some water toys for kids and adults. Shelling for the little ones is great.

My husband and I spent a day at this beautiful white-sand beach that goes on for miles. Great beach experience, parking easy (although you'll need to get there early), and facilities like washrooms, showers and concessions were great. You can rent lounge chairs and beach umbrellas (they will install the umbrella in the sand for you), buy hot dogs, drinks... More

Lots of nice white sand! It does cost $8 for your access to the Barefoot Beach park - good for one day. There was little place to order some snacks. Another place across the boardwalk offered rentals for umbrellas, cabanas, SUP boards, etc. I do appreciate that they do not allow animals at this beach.

Our favorite beach. Great shelling, and long walks. Have to go early to get a parking spot. Loved watching the birds. Quieter at the pass end.

Love coming here for sunset. Multiple parking areas with VERY short walk to beach. Worth buying the $50 parking pass as $8 each time otherwise. Bring snacks and drinks but beware of the birds if you advertise:)

Great nature, very clean and children friendly. Hidden gem. I saw delphins and different birds. Excellent water for swimming.

There is a trail with all kinds of plants and signs with there names. The sand on the beach is like powder with great shells. It so quiet. One of the beautiful beaches I have been to.

Great beach! Fun for the whole family! If you come during peak time, parking is pain, but we got there around 11 during spring break and had no problems at all. We left around 2, and there were tons of people looking for a parking spot.

Secret, if you come after 5pm (which is in time for sunset) you don't have to pay and its not as crowded as Doc's area. Decent little restroom area and small facilities in one area. Only draw back is mile long slow (20mph) ride through the barefoot area (nice looking high dollar) takes a little time.

We stayed in Bonita Springs and drove to this beach everyday. What a great place to relax and enjoy the view of the Gulf. It was clean and if you go the end of the preserve, there is a bathroom close by, which comes in handy when hanging at the beach all day. It's $8 to park, but well worth... More
