I love this beach. But if you go in season, know that you must arrive fairly early to get parking and there is a fee for parking. They have great rest room facilities, it is always clean, and there is a small place for quick food options as well as kayak and paddle board rentals. A beautiful scenic beach, but... More

This is a great beach, stretching for miles. There are modern bathroom and shower facilities. Some very limited snacks are available. The entrance is tricky as it is shared with the entrance to the gated community of multi million dollar beachfront homes! But you can drive through once you check in with the gate. Be careful where you park as... More

They charge you $8.00 to get in and tell you to look around for parking spots, handy cap was all gone and so was every other spot. They did not say anything about an area in the parking area that turtles nest in. It's an area that looks like parking and there were about 20 cars already there so we... More

This beach was much much less busy than others we visited. It was mostly families and seniors - so relatively quiet, not loud and obnoxious. The water was crystal clear and warm, very little seaweed. Tons of shells, and where the shells aren't plentiful the sand is super soft. Great place to "set up shop" with an umbrella and food... More

Staying in Naples and visited this beach twice. On a Monday and on a Friday. Friday was considerably more crowded. We arrived before 10 each morning and found parking but it is tricky. There are protected turtles and you can only park in designated areas. You drive into a residential area, there are large houses on either side. Just keep... More

Most beaches in Naples are packed in March (it is the height of the season) We were able to find a nice quiet place on this beach to relax and just listen to the sound of the waves crashing around us. Food is available but we choose to pack a cooler. Great way to spend a day while in or... More

We've been there several times and have enjoyed each trip! It's going to be popular, so if you go on a weekend, get there early, or expect a walk from the overflow. We always go on a weekday and have no trouble getting in -- early.

The whole family (7 of us, 3 grand-parents, 2 parents, 1 aunt and one two year old) loved the beach. With nice accommodations, enough parking if you get there before 10am. Only thing missing are rental umbrellas. Cabanas are available, but to far from the water.

We tried to get here mid week but bumper to bumper traffic caused us to turn around and go elsewhere. On Sat. Morning, we just drove right in. When you turn off BonitaBeach road onto Barefoot beach road, the pavement is all brick and winds back and forth about 3 miles to get to ranger station. There are 3 parking... More
