If you like not crowded beach...

...this might be one of your options. Very enjoyable. No waves. Beautiful sand and relatively quiet place. Definitely will go back!

Beautiful scenery and great day trip for anyone in the area. Saw all sorts of wild life! Was a little cold in November so dress warm!

Well maintained beach with plenty of shells and sea life. Though we went in November, it had lovely stretches without people. Good walking beach, not overly crowded.

Now as some have indicated, this is not the place to go to find the softest sand. It is the place to go to find a laid back, not too crowded spot for soaking up the sun and SHELLS!

been going to naples/marco for nearly 35 years and never went here. my wife and I like to walk and found this. It is a good drive from naples in bonita beach but is worth the drive. if you're local even better. once you turn into the street leading to the park you start on a 2 mile brick road... More

You can't go wrong with a visit to Barefoot Beach. Whether it is for a day in the sun or a sunset stroll. The sand is not too shelly and the atmosphere is soul recharging.

The beach is beautiful however sometimes not enough wind to get rid of the sand flies. The gopher tortoises are awesome. Such cuties. I think this may be one of the few of jot one of the only places they live. Awesome to see them.

Barefoot Beach is a favorite of ours. The beach is a local favorite and well kept by the park service. Kid and adult friendly. Great facilities and parking is close by. Great place to relax and watch the waves.

The drive to this beach was beautiful! The homes you drive past are absolutely stunning! We didn't stay long at the beach in the end though. There were a lot of old fish scattered around the beach which gave it an unpleasant smell. The highlight was when we were just about to get in the car on leaving, we spotted... More
