God's beauty is everywhere on this beach. If you want the human activity and game sand then you need to go to the Siesta Key Beach or the Vanderbilt Beach in Naples.

We love going to this beach on our first day of vacation because you pay by the hour versus paying for all day access which can be more expensive. Usually spend 2 hours on day one and can take a nic e walk in. Front...More

Love Barefoot Beach! Daily beach walk was wonderful. Opportunity to head north on beach where it's quiet, serene, some shade trees & great homes to admire; walking south on beach offers more crowds, people watching, state park showers/restrooms & still wonderful homes to admire. Lots...More

Bonita Beach and sorounding areas were affected by the Red Tide and the beaches are littered with dead fish so when you sit at the beach all you smell is dead fish. They have the nicest sunsets on the west coast of Florida.

Get there at least 30 minutes before sunset if you are driving. Parking is limited and is reasonably priced at $2 an hour.

We visited this beach a few times this winter and last. Although it isn’t always easy to find a parking spot we were lucky each time. It’s a beautiful beach, and there never seems to be any crowds this time of year probably because it...More

Beautiful beach ! Miles of white powdery sand great for taking long walks. The water is clear and clean. You may even catch a glimpse of a few dolphins swimming by !

Yes you can bring a cooler. The sign says no alcohol allowed. Doc's, a restaurant on the beach, sells beer, wine and mixed drinks.

Not unless you can find street parking. In many places they charge on the street also but they can be found just depends on the season you are here
