Barefoot beach is less crowded than many others in southwest Florida. The walk along the beach (south) towards Wiggins Pass is beautiful and unspoiled. If I were staying on Ft Myers beach (an unfortunate choice if you like unspoiled beaches, peace and quiet) it would be worth the drive to visit Barefoot Beach.

I absolutely love this beach! Great place to go for a swim. Dolphins swam by the beach and it was a lot better than any dolphin encounter you could pay for at any of the aquariums or parks around Florida.

I have lived in Naples for 10 years. Loved this beach when visiting in 2002, nothing changed stil one of my favorite beaches in the area. Love the wildlife in the area, gopher Tortoises, osprey.

This beach is clean and not crowded off season. The added feature is seeing the gopher turtles in their natural habitat. They are unique. If you visit during high season don't go from 11 to 3 because there are not parking spots. Sunset there is fabulous.

Very nice Florida beach. Not too crowded. Shells to find but good sandy beach. There are a series of picnic table cabana's tucked into the dune line. If you weren't smart enough to bring your own umbrella/shade (😏) they offer a nice respite from the sun after awhile.

Didn't get to see as much of this beach as we would have liked, due to the access being a bit limited and it costs money to go in, but it looked gorgeous and well worth seeing.

Nice quiet secluded beach. The peaceful drive there on a brick road passing through million dollars houses is pretty fabulous. We did not view any wildlife & the water was pretty murky. But the movie being filmed on the beach was interesting. Entry fee of $8. Bathrooms & vending machine at first parking lot. Noticed chair & water sport rental... More

Barefootin, after you wind through a lush million dollar residential neighborhood. Dr. Beach, aka Stephen Leatherman, Named Barefoot Beach as the #2 beach on his list of top 10 beaches..Barefoot Beach is 342 acres of natural land, and you can walk a mile along the beach. No bathrooms, no lifeguards.
