If you have never been to any of the Gulf beaches stretching from St. Petersburg Beach up to Clearwater Beach, you would consider this one fantastic. It's nice but the Tampa Bay area beaches are 10 time nicer: very deep not narrow beach areas, clean beautiful soft sand with very little shells to walk on except along the water line.

We live in St. Pete and this is our first Covid outing. Staying at a Naple Hotel so decided to drive up the coast to Fort Myers.

We did have a very nice walk along the beach. It was a Thursday and not many people on the beach so was easy to maintain distance from those walking or laying on the beach.

Would definitely recommend for anyone to check it out. If the main parking lot is full, drive North up the highway as there are Beach Access points every so many blocks with paid parking for 5-6 cars.

Nice enough beach that is very busy peak season. Rentals available for chairs and umbrellas from a local lady, as well as at Doc’s (Bonita Beach Parasail). Get there early! Limited parking for $2 hour.

We stopped for a picnic lunch on the beach as we drove from Key Largo to Sarasota. This looked like a nice beach based on the reviews and a convenient enough detour off the highway, but it really is NOT a visitor-friendly beach. There is not enough parking. Cars were lined up to get into the larger lot, and the other lots hold only 4-8 cars. We finally found a parking spot, and followed the public access walkway between houses to come out on a beach lined with mansions. We much prefer a natural looking beach with trees. As we walked along the beach, we found millions of shells, but they were all white and mostly broken, so not interesting to collect, and they made it uncomfortable walking the beach barefoot. We do NOT recommend this beach.

Nice beach with plenty of sand. The beach is clean and not overcrowded. Houses line the beach with a few communities putting out lounges for themselves. Nice beach to walk on. Not a lot of shells but some noted. There is a place to rent jet skis. There is a restaurant on the beach. Parking can be a problem especially in season

This beach is a long strip of white sand, along which are numerous access points. We accessed it at Bonita Beach Park, at the south end of Hickory Boulevard. There is a reasonably good sized parking lot there. There are also rest rooms. Additionally, there is a lot of beach south of this spot that seems less crowded. Pleasant.

Beautiful beach! Easy access with paid parking (be prepared to stand in line to pay at the machine) Lots of shells and also found some sea glass. Didn’t find a shower to rinse off the salt and sand on the beach access walk or nearby. Not sure if they have one.

The beach has 10 or so access points along the road. However each spot might be limited to 4 cars. Just keep trying. The access points are just feet to the sand. The beach was super clean and calm.

As a tip, there are a number of thrift shops nearby to grab a cheap beach chair and then re-donate!

The homes and rentals on the drive are awesome to look up!

We stopped by here on a cool day to walk the beach. It was not crowded and there was ample parking with facilities and an outdoor shower to rinse our sandy feet. We walked for a few miles and found some very unique , beautiful shells. The beach is very long but not too wide. It appeared clean and very well kept up. No seaweed .

The parking can really get packed QUICKLY. It is so affordable in comparison to the private parking spots. My kids and I will get up and arrive right before sunrise. Best parking, more shells, and very few people. Afternoon you will be fighting for a spot (if it is not already marked at capacity).

We vacation in the area yearly and love this beach. Always clean, great parking, food carts and a great restaurant right on the beach. Beautiful beach, lots of room to spread out. There are public bathrooms and a shower area as well. The shelling is great!
