Attractions

Naples is a vibrant city blessed with a temperate climate. It’s no wonder many people choose to move to Naples as fulltime residents or to escape the winter climate for a few months each year. If you are new to the area or are considering a Naples home, Naples rental, or Naples vacation rental you may not be aware of the many attractions and natural wonders that Naples has to offer.

Beaches in Naples – Delnor Wiggins Pass State Recreation Area, Clam Pass Beach Park, Naples Municipal Beach & Fishing Pier (Naples Pier), Vanderbilt Beach, North Gulfshore Boulevard Beach, and Lowdermilk Beach Park – are nothing short of spectacular! With its 17 miles of sugary white sandy beaches along the Gulf of Mexico it’s no wonder that in 2005 the Travel Channel named Naples as “America’s Best All-Around Beach.” Whether you are enjoying one of Naples vacation rentals or have a home in Naples, take every opportunity to explore the many beaches.

Golf in Naples offers the most golf holes per capita in the country. A true golfers’ Mecca, there are approximately 90 courses in Collier County, many of which are semi-private and public courses for all levels of play.
