“great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This place is amazing! My parents volunteer at the beach while they are in Florida for the winter, and they took me there a couple days. It is an awesome place to just walk down the entire beach.

Also they have guided canoe tours, and nature tours for anyone interested....

“Best beach I've ever been to!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

I've been to a lot of beaches but this one far and away exceeds the others. Beautiful drive up there and no homes or buildings on the preserve. Pristine sand and gently rolling gulf water. This is our go to spot on the gulf coast!

“Beautiful Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Although it seems like you are going the wrong way, follow your GPS it is worth the searching. This was a a great beach preserve for the sunset. We had a little cooler weather so it was not too crowded when we were there in early March.

“Day at the Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Nice public beach. Don't get confused with Barefoot Beach Conservation Area. They are two different locations. The public beach will cost you $2 for two hours of parking, unless you find the free parking across the street. To go to the Conservation Area of Barefoot Beach, it will cost you $8 a day to enter. There are 3 parking areas with the first one having restroom facilities, etc. If you plan to spend several hours, we would recommend going to the Barefoot Beach Conservation Park. Both beaches are similar. We enjoyed the laid back atmosphere at Lovers Key State Park much more.
