  • Barefoot beach is always a wonderful fun place to enjoy the Gulf. So much fun to watch the turtles wandering around. Don’t forget to check under your car before leaving, the turtles love to hide...

  • God blessed The Community by positioning this park in a beautiful area that once you visit it you will long to go back again. Thank you for the goodness this brings so we the people can enjoy a beach that’s a treasure. God bless Naples/Bonita we still have some open areas to enjoy without owning million dollar homes
  • By far my favorite beach in the area. Very nice area with lots of parking and cute little Gopher Turtles, so keep an eye out for them! The beach is a nice mixture of sand, not pure shell like other beaches. Bathrooms are nice. Lots of diverse sea shells. Water is usually pretty flat with minor waves, good for paddle boarding.
