The beach is beautiful, but you must see the sunset. Bring a blanket, hang out for a while and just take it all in!! You will not be disappointed!

Visited for just a few hours - noon to 3, gorgeous. Gentle breeze the whole time. Amazing shells. Lush vegetation leading up to the beach.

Went in the morning with granddaughter & her friend and stayed until after the sunset! It was an outstanding day! Girls snorkeled, swam, collected shells and walked the beautiful beach! We saw so much wildlife: gopher turtles, bobcat, black snake, and beautiful dolphins just off shore before sunset!

If your in the Bonita Springs or Naples area it the beach to visit.🏝🌈🌴🌞 it's worth the cost of the car admission to the park.

This is the best beach in the area. Plenty of parking, not as crowded as Vanderbilt beach and there are lots of shells to collect, almost as good as Sanibel with no tolls. And the there are the turtles.

We always enjoy our time at this beach. One of the treasures of SW Florida. Beach access is easy from the walkway directly to the beach. Plenty of shells and a gentle dirf from the Gulf.

You can go world wide and never find a nicer beach. The water is azure blue. Warm and calm. There is parking, bathroom facilities, cold drinks and ice cream to buy, umbrellas, cabanas and chairs to rent. Great sand, good for walking and shells galore. You must watch out for the turtles. Look under your car before you pull out.
