Barefoot Beach Preserve

Barefoot Beach Preserve 101/365 Things to Do

If you are here in Bonita Springs in the off season or even in the should season I can let you in on a little secret about Barefoot Beach Preserve.  You can actually visit that state park preserve in the evening and not have to pay to get in. 

The community of Barefoot Beach is gated and the preserve is at the south end.  They stop collecting the fee to enter the park after five-ish.  You can enter the community without stopping at the guardhouse in daylight hours, drive through the community to the preserve and then get in for free. It’s a great secret sunset spot.  You can avoid a little of the congestion of Bonita Beach, too.

Don’t forget to stop by Sweet Melissa’s Ice Cream on your way home, too!
