In an unspoiled beachfront setting where beauty meets nature, you’ll find Barefoot Beach in Bonita Springs that just captured the #2 spot in Dr. Beach’s Top 10 Beaches for 2014. Known as America’s foremost beach expert, Dr. Beach judges the best beaches in the country by 50 criteria, including beach condition, sand softness, color of sand, watercolor, views and vistas, and well-kept grounds. Activities on Barefoot Beach are bountiful, starting with the great sport of fishing: fishing gear and fishing ramps; 2 nature trails; butterfly and cacti gardens; gopher tortoises; shelling; lectures and guided tours; water equipment rentals, and so many more activities to be enjoyed by the family or individually. Barefoot Beach shares the same land mass as Little Hickory Island on Bonita Beach. The south end has a preserve so there is little development on this part of Bonita Beach---no condominium buildings or commercial areas. The entrance at Barefoot Beach Boulevard has a gatehouse and guard for private residences, giving it an exclusive feel. Barefoot Beach prides itself on 342 untouched acres on a barrier island that is split from the mainland by tidal creeks and mangrove swamps. Bordered on the west by the Gulf of Mexico and sand dunes, Barefoot Beach is also bordered on the east by mangroves and tidal back bays, and Wiggins Pass to the south. There is an $8 entrance fee per vehicle, or free to Collier County residents with a beach parking permit. There are concession stands, picnic tables, showers and restrooms. All the comforts one can ask for can be found on stunning Barefoot Beach, which is also a beautiful place to own beachfront property.
