Naples Beaches

Naples Beaches

With over 10 miles of white sandy beaches spanning from south of the Naples Pier to Barefoot Beach, you will love the Beach Lifestyle Naples offers. From fishing, a casual stroll to watching sunsets, our Naples Area Beaches offer a variety of public access points and parking options. Some of our beaches include:

 

Lowdermilk Park

From great events to just enjoying a day in the sunshine. Lowdermilk Park offers you a great location, just minutes from downtown Naples where you can pass the day away.

Conner Park

Conner Park provides parking off-site of the North Naples beach area. It is just a short walk away from beautiful Collier County beaches.  This location offers a great place for the kids to play or a convenient way to avoid the direct beach traffic when looking for a place to park.

Vanderbilt Beach

This is a happening part of the beach.  Enjoy early morning shelling, beachside dining, The Ritz, and the local color.  Walk, bike or drive and use one of the 152 parking spaces at the end of Vanderbilt Beach Road.  There are chair and equipment vendors, showers and restrooms.

Clam Pass

Clam Pass Park is located in the North Naples area, one of the most populated sections of Collier County.  This park is also one of the most popular beach access points much like Vanderbilt Beach. Clam Pass boasts 35 acres of coastal habitat and preserves that habitat by providing beach access from a three-quarter-mile boardwalk to the sandy beach.

Delnor Wiggins

The mile-long stretch of white sugar sand at Delnor-Wiggins has been rated as one of the best beaches in the nation. This 166-acre park is a tropical paradise for beach lovers, boaters and divers. The beach is a popular spot to sunbathe, swim, beach comb, snorkel and picnic. At the northern end of this beach, where Wiggins Pass enters the Gulf of Mexico, swimming is not allowed but fishing is a popular activity.

Barefoot Beach Preserve

Just north of Delnore Wiggins, Collier County’s beautiful beachfront reaches its zenith at Barefoot Beach Preserve. This beach stretches north from Wiggins Pass to northern boundary of Collier County. Barefoot beach preserve is home to numerous animal species and a spectacular beach for shelling and enjoying nature at its best.

Lover’s Key

years, Lovers Key was only accessible by boat and it was said that lovers traveled to the island to enjoy the privacy of this remote and solitary beach. Today, Lovers Key is one of four barrier islands that make up a spectacular state park. A haven for wildlife, the islands and their waters are home to West Indian manatees, bottlenose dolphins, roseate spoonbills, marsh rabbits, and bald eagles. The two mile long beach is accessible by boardwalk or tram and is popular for shelling, swimming, picnicking, and sunbathing. Black Island has over five miles of multiuse trails for hiking and bicycling. Anglers and boaters can launch their vessels from the park’s boat ramp. The park’s concession offers kayak tours, as well as bicycle, canoe and kayak rentals.

Dog Beach

Naples and Bonita have strictly enforced no dog policies.  Dog Beach, just north of Naples with access from Estero Boulevard is the exception.   The name says it all; this is a beach for dog lovers and their canine companions.  Dogs of all sizes frolic in the surf, size each other up and for the most part have their owners very well trained.  If you’re looking for a place to take your pooch to the beach this is the place for you.  Laid back and dog friendly.  Heading north on Highway 41, make a left on Bonita Beach Road, which turns into Hickory Boulevard. Look for the Dog Beach sign on the left.
