Getting tired of the drive over to Ft Myers beach. Try out this beach. All it's lacking is bathrooms and restaurants. Nice sandy spots and a long beach to walk on

Beware....bathrooms are a distance away & parking is not very convenient. Beach is OK. Probably a better place to kayak rather than beach goers.

What time does the beach "open" for walking, or in other words, "what time does the parking area open"?

Parking is very limited. Be sure to wear shoes as there is a lot of debris and it is not a real sandy beach, however you can walk out into the water which was only ankle high when I was there.

Is this a good beach for walking at a brisk pace with bare feet?

Yes. There are shells but the exact route you take along the water should be comfortable.
