Barefoot Beach Visit

It was a pretty beach but not our favorite. Small shoreline and the drive out to it was pretty long through the community. It was not as pretty as the other beaches in Naples.

We spent hours on this beautiful beach. The sea was warm and clear. Their were baby turtles hatching on the beach and we were lucky enough to see two make their way to the sea. There are clean restrooms and plenty of parking. So many stunning properties line the road a fabulous setting. Favourite beach in Florida

This beach was clean and the water was perfect. You do have to go through a very upscale development to get here and you do have to pay to enter but the value far outweighs the cost.

Best beach in the naples/Bonita springs area. This place is so clean water looks ten times clearer than most beaches I've been to in Florida. They have standpipes so you can wash off after you're done swimming, also clean restrooms and working vending machine. I almost didn't want to write this review because something's are best kept a secret lol,... More

Loved paying the entrance to the park without the meter parking. Bathroom is small but are maintained clean. There is ice-cream and snacks for the kids. We had a perfect Sunday morning/afternoon here. We saw dolphins in the distance a couple of times and had a pretty amazing day. The drive to the beach is also a pleasant one through... More

We stayed on Fort Myers beach, but decided to check Barefoot Beach out for one day and weren't disappointed at all. Beach was great and restrooms are very close to the beach which is nice. Also liked paying for parking on our way in and not having to use the pay machines which are sometimes frustrating to see and use.... More

What a great beach! As others have stated, depending where you park you can be left alone in a peaceful area or in a busier area (busy is relative) with access to bathrooms, chair/cabana rentals ($5 or $20), showers and snacks. The water was beautiful and plenty of shelling opportunities, depending on where you go. Saw dolphins off the coast... More

This is our second time here. There are gopher turtles on the side of the road and sea turtle nests along the beach. The water is warm, the waves are fun and overall it is a natural and beautiful beach. Not overly crowded but has bathroom faculties for kids - a plus with a 5 year old. Love it!!'

Beautiful beach that is very set in off the main road. To find it, you have to drive through community of multi-million dollar homes. Parking and bathroom facilities available. Parking fees were waived in evening. Drove there to view sunset.
