Welcome to Bonita Beach
Nestled between Lover’s Key and Barefoot Beach is little ol’ Bonita Beach! This small beach town only spans about 2.5miles of road along Hickory Boulevard, which takes you from Little Hickory Island to Big Hickory Island. With white sandy beaches of the Gulf coast that span the entire length of the skinny island, and the Estero Bay on the backside of the island, there’s lots of fun to be had in Bonita Beach!

More About Bonita Beach
How Do I Get There?
Good question! If you follow Bonita Beach Road all the way west from inner-city Bonita, you’ll arrive at Bonita Beach! You can also access Bonita Beach by taking Estero Boulevard all the way through Fort Myers Beach, passing Lover’s Key and arriving on Little Hickory Island. You can also visit by boat, following the Imperial River to Estero Bay or from the Gulf.
With so much beachfront, you won’t be surprised to learn that Bonita Beach has several beach access points that are a part of the Lee County Parks system. In addition, there are two Lee County parks: Bonita Bay Beach Park, and Little Hickory Island Beach Park, where you can park, picnic, play, and swim.
If you were to turn left once you reached the end of Bonita Beach Road, you will enter Barefoot Beach. This community is a joy to ride through, with a brick-paver road weaving you through tall, luxurious homes, before reaching the handful of tall beachfront condos at the Barefoot Beach Club.
Barefoot Beach Preserve
If you continue driving through Barefoot Beach, you’ll eventually dead-end at the Barefoot Beach Preserve. Oddly enough, this is a Collier County owned preserve, that almost meets the Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, with only the Cocohatchee River separating the two. At the Barefoot Beach Preserve, you’ll find natural, sandy beaches, with boardwalks shaded by native vegetation, and gopher tortoises hanging out within the brush.
Kayaking and Fishing
The mangrove islands behind Bonita Beach are great places to cast a line and hang out for the day. Rent a kayak and explore the bay trails, enjoying the quiet environment around you. Bring your camera to capture photographs of island birds, manatee, dolphins and fish as you paddle through Estero Bay.
