This is a favorite beach of mine in Naples. You reach it from Bonita Beach Road, after driving through an incredibly POSH neighborhood. But this is pure beach, beautiful white sand, amazing amounts of shells, and sitting on the beach you have nothing behind you but trees. The people who come here seem to be respectful of nature as well,.... More

Besides the white sandy beach, snack bar, and miles of spots to spread your blanket to relax, it's a great place to fish...especially in the late afternoon. I've caught many dozens of fish here, including whiting, pompano, snappers, redfish, snook and even a small shark at one of the distant locations. I usually cast my line away from the swimmers...

Looking for secluded beach off the main stream and we found it. The beach is great for walking, shelling or just laying on the beach. The wildlife was all around.

Barefoot Beach has one of the whitest sand that you will find in Southwest Florida. Access to the beach is close by from the parking area. Sometimes though, during holidays, parking gets full and you may need to walk a little farther away. There are accessible showers. It is a family friendly beach with sandy beach bottom. It isn't a...

Paradise simply put! A beautiful beach park that is worth a visit if you want to get away from the crowds. There is little here but that is the attraction for me. At the start of the park there are restrooms and concessions but drive to the tip of the park for a sense of being at one with nature!

Took our grandkids to Barefoot Beach Preserve. The beach was in the top 10 for the USA. We went in the afternoon, paid 8 for parking, and hit the beach. Quiet, seemed like a private beach and the grandkids had a blast looking for shells. We brought home two buckets of non-broken shells of different colors and size. We were... More

We drove to this beach for sunset. While it was beautiful and secluded, I feel that it was more impressive to view the million dollar mansions on the beachfront. WOW! You drive by these awesome homes for a mile or so before you reach the beach. We got lucky and didn't have to pay the $8 because we arrived at... More

I visited this park twice and was very satisfied with it. There is an $8 cover charge but the beach is beautiful. You will see turtles feeding on the roadside, Dolphins swimming in the ocean, starfish on the shores and very clear and clam waters. There is very little shade so bring an umbrella and chairs as well as a... More
