This Hidden Beach In Florida Will Take You A Million Miles Away From It All

It’s no surprise that, year after year, Barefoot Beach in Bonita Springs tops best beach lists. It combines so many elements beach-going families love. The warm Gulf water is not only a beautiful color, it’s shallow with small, gentle waves, making it the perfect beach for children.

In the preserve, you can explore over 340 acres of changing landscapes, including the natural beach with dunes and sea oats, a coastal hammock, tidal pools and mangrove swamps.

They will delight in playing in the soft sand, collecting seashells, sand dollars and starfish. You may even spot gopher tortoises, fish, stingrays and dolphins while enjoying one of the last unspoiled barrier islands on our gorgeous southwest coast.

Nearby Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, Lovers Key State Park, Corkscrew Sanctuary, Koreshan State Historic Site, and Clams Pass Park provide plenty of activities for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy hiking, biking, camping and just relaxing at the beach.

Here’s some of the lovely scenery and wildlife that awaits at Barefoot Beach:
