Barefoot Bay is Florida’s largest manufactured home community. It is an unincorporated, deed-restricted manufactured home community and recreation district.
Mr. and Mrs. John Agoo were the first residents to move into Barefoot Bay on September 23, 1970. They moved onto Eagle Drive, in the Birds of Prey section. Then, in 1971 the community opened its Polynesian-style clubhouse, community, and recreation center; it is now known as Building A.
50 years ago this year, in 1971, 67 families were living in Barefoot Bay. According to the 2010 census, there were 9,808 people living in the Bay.
Barefoot Bay is a beautiful community to live in with great people, lots of activities, and a very low crime rate.
