The word “bonita” in Spanish translates to mean beautiful, so it’s no wonder that the beaches that line the coastline of our city are exactly that – truly beautiful. People from all over the world leave bad weather behind and come to visit the sun and sand on the pristine shorelines of Bonita Beach.
Bonita beach is a real treasure. It isn’t overcome with touristy shops. Majestic homes fill the shoreline. It has miles of soft, white sand, great shelling, occasional dolphin sightings, and turtle nesting grounds that beachgoers of all ages will appreciate. Swimmers, snorkelers, rafters, kayakers, and windsurfers will appreciate the clear waters just steps away from the sand.
Docs beach house is a landmark located steps from the Gulf of Mexico. With two floors of dining and a patio, there are plenty of tables to serve you. Or, if you prefer to eat with the sand under your feet, swing by the concession stand for some delicious food and head to the beach. Doc's menu consists of breakfast, lunch, and dinner choices.
Doc's beachfront hosts Bonita Jet Ski and Parasail, southwest Florida's premier watersports company. In addition to parasailing, Bonita Jet Ski and Parasail rents wave runners, aqua cycles, and, for the beach bum, lounge chairs and umbrellas.
No matter what you decide to do Bonita Beach is sure to please you. Don’t forget the sunscreen!
