We’re from PA and have been visiting various beaches in the area. While this one is more secluded and maybe less busy than others, the amenities are lacking (tiny concession stand was closed) and the beach and shallow water is covered in broken shells. My...More
This is definitely not a barefoot beach! There are so many shells on the beach that if you walk barefoot your feet will get cut. The beach is large and usually not crowded. It's an ok beach but I don't like it. It's not pretty...More
Beautiful unspoiled beach with convenient parking lots and facilities for the first lot. If you parked in other parking lots you’d have to walk back to the bathroom and showers.
White sand beaches with plenty of shells - not as many as Sanibel or Captiva...More
Barefoot is a great beach to go to with younger children and families. I have been going since I was a little kid and it hasn't changed much. Its a great alternative to the busier beaches on Fort Myers Beach or even Naples. As it...More
The wildlife, walking trails and views for picture taking are great. The beach was mostly seashells and not really soft sand. A storm came in from the ocean while we were there and that was impressive to see.

Our first trip to the Ft. Myers/Naples/Estero area... advice (4 Replies)
My family (2 adults, 1 toddler & 1 10 year old) will be heading to camp at Koreshan State Historic Site March 27-31. It's a loooong drive for us, so we want to make the most of our days there. My kids like the beach, hubby likes "nature", and I like both, so we're trying to get in a little of it all. I want to avoid the spring break crowd of kids if possible, so I know we are probably avoiding Ft. Myers itself as much as possible. I have heard good things about the following areas, and...More

Your ideas are very good, but I'd drop Barefoot Beach. It's really just a public beach, and you'll find that at Lovers Key SP. There you can walk or bike nature trails and rent kayaks/canoes for paddling along the backwaters (they have guided kayak/canoe tours on certain days/times). The beach is ungroomed and natural. It's a great day trip (bring along a picnic!). You might also like The Conservancy of SW Florida. They have walking trails, an education center, and boat rides on the Gordon...More
