When you think of Southwest Florida, the first thing that might come to mind is sun-bathing on one of our beautiful white beaches. Recently, our very own, Barefoot Beach, earned a Top 10 designation in Dr. Beach’s latest survey of the best beaches in the nation. Yes, the entire nation!
You may ask yourself, who is this Dr. Beach? With a highly impressive resume, he is more than qualified to judge our beaches. Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, a.k.a. “Dr. Beach”, is Professor and Director of the Laboratory for Coastal Research at Florida International University. Beyond teaching and directing, Dr. Beach has either authored or edited 16 books.
Barefoot Beach ranked in at #6 on this list, beating out beaches in Southeast Florida, the Carolinas, and Massachusetts. Established in 1990, Barefoot Beach remains one of Southwest Florida’s most natural and inviting beaches.
