Great sand and the beach is different every time we go. Wish there was a food option. Just bring your own. Close in parking. Great shelling.

Visited to watch sunset in December. Easy access, good parking available. Not crowded. Definite go-to beach in the area

Every time we come to Bonita Springs we make it a point to visit Barefoot Beach Preserve. Walking the beach, collecting shells, watching the birds, getting a glimpse of the Gopher Tortises and the Sun Sets. Nothing like the beach at sunset.

Stumbled across this secluded place tucked away down Barefoot Road. You actually drive through a gorgeous larger home neighborhood on a bricked street to get here. So not too shabby. Once at the beach there is ample parking and then just nature...............which we love. White...More

Beautiful beach. You will enjoy gathering some beautiful seashells as the beach has a lot of them. Great facilities too.

Then only major fireworks that I know of are launched from Naples Pier, which is about 18 miles from Barefoot Beach. I would recommend driving closer to the fireworks, but be sure to get there at least 2 hours early... More

When we were there, I think there was a phone number on the fence surrounding the kayaks. Otherwise, I 'd check on the website, or ask the ranger at the gate where they collect the $8 parking fee - they seem helpful.
