“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Like all of the Gulf Coast beaches, this one is gorgeous. Parking is a bit pricey if you are only stopping by for an hour, but if you plan on spending a bit more time it is well worth it.

“What a beach area should be.”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

There were three areas to park after driving through what seemed to be a very large and expensive gated community. There was only a very short walk to the nice warm sand. A few tortes were observed in the parking area. Collier County Beach permits were accepted.

“Beautiful Barefoot Beach”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

This is our favorite beach. 8.00 if you don't have a beach pass. The Gopher tortoises are fun to watch. We always see a few. The little education shack in the parking lot is fun and you can take 2 shells that the rangers picked up earlier. Boardwalk is nice man made material. They have bathrooms and outdoor rinse-off showers. The beach has sugary white sand with shells everywhere. The water is usually clear, warm and calm. Scenery is top notch. Go if you get a chance.

“Great beach”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Barefoot beach is a beautiful beach in bonita springs. It is very sad that there are so few places available to use a beach area and not have to pay a fee. But, since there is no choice for some, the $8.00 fee is worth it as the beach is the best!

“This is heaven on earth”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Lots of beach to walk and swim. This is a beautiful place. It does have bathroom and outdoor shower facilities. Take Bonita Beach Rd. West, and turn left at the last light, Lely Beach Rd., before the roads turns North by Doc's restaurant. You won't be sorry.
