Barefoot Beach Preserve

Reviewed By CharlotteDayTripper - Charlotte, North Carolina

We have come to this beach for over 20 years and have noticed there are considerably less shells than there used to be. But it's still a great beach for shelling, for native wildlife, usually a dolphin sighting, great sunsets. During season get there early or you won't find parking and the beach gets crowded. Bring everything you need, no real amenities.

Barefoot Beach Preserve County Park

Reviewed By Dundercheese - New York City, New York

You have to go on bonita Beach road and before it turns north to ft. Myers beach you turn left and go a couple miles. It's back in Collier county so it's free if you have a beach sticker. Beautiful beaches and a nice walking trail at the end. The park has one refreshment stand and public bathrooms. One of the best beaches in Florida

Florida HydroBike

Reviewed By Lindapala - Detroit, Michigan

We enjoyed every minute on the hydro bikes, easy to ride, very stable. You get a bit of exercise while wandering in the channel near Delnar Wiggins State Park. Lots of sun and beautiful views, explore the coves and mangrove trails without getting wet. Lots of fish were jumping all around us, we watched pelicans and herons and other birds dive down right in front of us and saw a big turtle when we beached our bikes on a lovely little patch of sand. Wear sunscreen and enjoy!

We offer canoes, stand-up paddle boards, and kayaks. Look for manatees, dolphins, and lots of birds.

We went to delnor-wiggens state park and booked a kayaking tour with Naples Beach Adventures, parking lot #4. it was a wonderful two hour trip through the mangroves. We had a very nice guide, Jeremy Cole, he was a great naturalist, very knowlegable. We explored the natural estuaries of the Cocohatchee River, leading out to the Gulf of Mexico. We saw many types of birds, went very close to an osprey nest! We learned how the Calusa Indians fished and saw their ancient fishing grounds.

Serenity Walk Park

Reviewed By susiedu - Kendal, United Kingdom

This relatively small park is a lovely place to visit. The vegetation has been restored: exotic invasive species have been removed and replaced by local plants. This means that the natural animal life is also returning. There are information boards that explain clearly what has been done here and what wildlife you might see. The trail is about one mile round and is flat, easy walking but not paved. There is a small parking area and although it is close to the main road once you get in among the trees it's calm and peaceful.

Amazing collection of very rare cars. All eras are represented in a unique building. Many are racing cars with unique pedigrees. The docents are enthusiasts themselves and extremely knowledgeable.
There is also an area devoted to rebuilding and renovating rare cars.

It is nice to have the option of walking under the tropical canopy or riding the tram to the beach. There was so much nature! We saw large crabs, sand dollars, and dolphins. The water was clear and the sky was beautiful.

We surely will be back in the years to come. It's a long journey for someone coming from Portugal, but it's truly worth it. Great beach with white sand, water, conditions and region, weather, holiday spirit. Very calm has we like it.

Reviewed By Jon Z - Naples, Florida

I had the honor of being a chaperone for 40 of my granddaughters 8th grade classmates. If you can plan your visit when a guide is available it will be worth it. Stuart was our guide and was excellent as he added a personal side to his narration as both of his parents were survivors of the death camps.
We must always honor the victims murdered during the holocaust and thank god for those that survived and lived to tell their stories and the truth!

Bowditch Point Park

Reviewed By patnjoe2015 - Alexandria, Virginia

We have visited beaches in Hawaii, Tahiti, the Caribbean, and many more and Fort Myers Beach on Estero Island in Florida is right up there with any of them. Bowditch Point is at the north end of the beach with views of the Gulf of Mexico, Sanibel Island, and Fort Myers. It is a well maintained public beach with picnic areas, restrooms, and shower stalls. The parking area is a good size, but fills up quickly during the "season" (Jan - Apr). Concrete and boarded walk ways lead to the beach through the picnic areas. This is a really nice place to spend the day at the beach and have a picnic.
