Barefoot Beach Preserve, Bonita Springs

Dig your feet into the sand and watch tortoises go by on Barefoot Beach Preserve, one of southwest Florida's last undeveloped barrier islands. Hike the short path for views of the ocean and lush vegetation and consider a guided walk with a ranger to learn about the area's plant and animal life. You can also pick up a free informative recreation guide. Restrooms, showers, and a concession stand at which you can purchase food and drinks and rent beach equipment are available. The preserve also provides parking for a fee. A visit to Barefoot Beach Preserve represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bonita Springs trip itinerary maker site to plot your vacation.
