Other than the eight dollar parking it was a gem in the midst of diamond homes Huge mansions on the water Drive a couple miles to get to beach Clean white sand not rocky beaches Worth the experience

A Nice clean beach and had parking available for $8.00. Lots of shells so wear your beach shoes if walking. It was less crowded than the Bonita Springs beach. I don’t recall any commercial businesses to grab a drink so bring your own.

I've been to beaches but never a beach with an abundance of shells like Barefoot Beach. What a treat! We had fun exploring, digging and playing. The only drawback is there aren't too many waves. Was the trade-off worth it? Shell yes!

You just sign up and it’s free. Sometimes the free seminars or events don’t take place if they don’t have a volunteer to lead it.

A few snack options, not really a restaurant in walking distance. Great spot for a picnic!
