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.
