Stunning sunset

Beautiful beach, free if visiting after 6pm. The sunset was breathtaking. Only drawback is no shade during the daytime.

This is a fantastic beach. What a lovely setting. We loved seeing the land tortoises in their natural habitat. The loggerhead turtle nests were amazing. There must have been twenty of them.

This is a great facility with multiple parking lots - changing rooms and miles of powder-white sandy beach. The waves are usually low and you can wad out in the water a long way.

Calm water. We had a beautiful light show far off of a few thunderclouds and lightning. The sunset hit a right balance of clouds, and the most intense pastels I have ever seen in a sunset. Wow!!!

This is a nice beach but you travel through a very e pensive neighborhood to get to it. The cost was a little high too. Must be to keep up those brick roads. Clean and nice.

We love seeing the gofer turtles as you drive in, plenty of parking. The beach itself is clean, has lots of shells and just a great beach to go to. Lots of times we've seen dolphins and manatees as well

The beach is an easy drive. Very little foot traffic during August . Have visited her in March when it has been hard to find a parking spot . Parking is by the hour so bring cash .

This is one of the best beaches in Southwest Florida. I would highly recommend a visit to Barefoot Beach. Often the turtles are crossing the entrance so watch carefully. Dolphins love to swim by almost daily.

The beach was very clean and almost no one there. You get to drive through a gorgeous neighborhood and see some amazing wild life.
