Tucked away from the buzz of tourists, Bonita Shores is a relaxed community located in the southwest corner of Vanderbilt Beach Road and Bonita Beach Road. It is the perfect location for boating and water activities because of its close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico. Not only that, if you are not one to spend so much time in the water, you can always make a trip to the local area shops and dining establishments.

Bonita Shores is quite literally sitting on the shoes of Little Hickory Bay as well as several other smaller bays and waterways. Years ago, Bonita Shores was a community for retirees. However, in the recent years, it has evolved into a mix of young and old residents. There are a lot of homes built during the 50s as well as newer homes built in Mediterranean style. Homes come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from bungalow style homes of 750 square feet living space to 2,000 square feet of luxurious estates. These diversity in home styles is what makes Bonita Shores not only charming, but also unique.

One of the most appealing qualities of Bonita Shores is that you have access to all natural amenities you could ever want in a place you call home. The beach, the Gulf, numerous waterways and bays provide for many activities like boating, fishing and shelling. Other amenities in Bonita Shores include the community clubhouse and a boat launch facility. There are also popular hotels that are located nearby and that include the Hyatt Regency of Coconut point and Trianon of Bonita Bay..
