“Very nice beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Lots of parking ($8 per car) A short walk from the parking lot and your on one of the nicest beaches in SW Florida. Not crowded at all and lots of wildlife around the area.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

You have to go thru the community of Lely Barefoot beach to get to this but it has a lot more parking then the Bonita or Collier side beach parking. There is a real nice bathroom and showers and some picnic tables. There is also a walking trail. I believe it is $8 per car for the whole day. We love it and sometimes ride our bicycles and then it is FREE!

“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

We were greeted at Barefoot Beach by gopher turtles and osprey. The beach wasn't very crowded, even for the week of Thanksgiving. If you have a Collier County beach pass, you are waved through the neighborhood access. Highly recommend.

“Great, Quiet Beach to Enjoy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Great beach, approx. 4 miles long. You enter through an exclusive, gated neighborhood of custom homes. Barefoot Beach is actually Wiggins Island with the Gulf of Mexico on one side and a Wiggins Bay on the other side. Good beach for shells, fishing or just enjoying the Gulf of Mexico. You can rent lounge chair, and Beach Umbrella if you wish. If you are looking for something to do physically, you can rent a Paddle Board to explore the water. Almost always see porpoises near the beach, which is an added treat especially for kids. There is a parking fee per car, currently $8.00 per day, or you can buy a yearly pass at any county office.

“Beautiful Water!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

This is a very nice state park $6.00 (may have gone up to $8.00) to get in for the whole day.
Lots of parking, nice restrooms, and a snack bar (in season). Watch for the gopher tortoises!! They like to lay under your car!! Quieter than alot of beaches.
