Barefoot Beach

Naturally secluded beach getaway surrounded by Florida’s unique flora and fauna.


Welcome to Barefoot Beach

Tranquil and welcoming coastal community recognized for its naturally stunning beaches.

Demonstrating Florida’s luscious and organic beauty, Bonita Beach has earned its title as the second best beach in all of America. This is Florida unspoiled, with sea oats supporting the sand dunes and a coastal hammock of sabal palm, gumbo limbo and sea grape trees. Don’t be surprised to find sand-dollars and shells along the sand, or spot a bottle-nosed dolphin in the water in the distance along this beautiful tropical coast. These gentle and shallow waters are perfect for sunbathing and family fun in your new personal oasis. 

The Barefoot Beach Preserve hugs the bay with 342 acres of nature preserves containing nature trails and thriving wildlife. To reach the park, you wind through a residential community of million-dollar homes. Consisting of plenty of activities and a short distance from some of the best dining and shopping in Southwest Florida, the Barefoot Beach community makes it incredibly easy to call home.
