17/365 Mini Escape at Bonita Beach Access #6
If you’re cruising down Hickory Blvd. in Bonita Springs and you’ve never noticed the flags on the gulf side of the street, pay close attention next time. Those flags indicate the free public parking beach access spots. Now don’t kid yourself, they fill up quickly on sunny days in-season and they’re full around sunset but if you slow your roll past a few of them you’ll be able to park, stroll to the beach and take a mini-vacation!
The last stop I made at Bonita Beach the water was beautiful, the sun was out, there was a large family visiting and set up for the day, complete with fishing equipment. They even caught a fish while I was there. I took a seat and just listened to the waves for a few minutes. It’s a beautiful sight and it’s a fun (and free) things to do in Bonita Springs.
If it’s off-season it’s always fun to grab dinner on Fort Myers Beach after the sunset. Our favorite dinner spot on FMB is South Beach Bistro in Santini Plaza.
