Barefoot Beach (Bonita Bay)
Barefoot Beach is in Bonita Springs on the southwest side of Florida. It is made up of a long white expanse of sand that stretch out along the azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico. These waters are calm and warm, and the beach is set in a preserve surrounded by wildlife and greenery. The Barefoot Beach Preserve is 342 acres of land that is pristine and unspoilt.
The beach here is a great spot for relaxing in the sun and just admiring the beauty of your surroundings after which you can take a cooling dip in the sea. If lounging is not for you then Barefoot Beach is the perfect place for long walks on the sand. In fact there’s plenty to do if you are feeling active, from hunting for shells to boating, paddle boarding, and fishing.
If you visit the preserve, you can see local wildlife such as the gopher tortoise and many more species. This is a great place for families, but no pets are allowed in order to protect wildlife.
Barefoot Beach lies roughly halfway between Naples and Fort Myers. Nearby, you can play golf and check out the shops, or you can visit the Mound Key Archaeological State Park and see the shell mounds that were created by the Calusa Indians. You can also visit the Everglades Wonder gardens nearby where you will see animals and plants that are native to Florida, as well as rescued birds and reptiles that they take care of.
