My Favorite Paradise Beaches

1)  Family  Favorite, Lowdermilk Park

Family friendly, beautiful with grass is something you normally don't get to enjoy at the beach.  Lowdermilk beach is popular with the locals and visitors alike.

The Park offers areas for Family cook-outs or family reunion and lovers too. Children's playground, volleyball courts and horseshoe pits are available. A great place to watch Sunsets too..

Location, location and location with lots of parking, food concessions, restrooms and playgrounds for children and adults.

 Arrive early if you want one of those prize Tiki Hut's. 

2)  Vanderbilt Beach, A Local Favorite

Vanderbilt Beach on the other hand screams "BEACH!"

See for your self why visitors and residents come to Vanderbilt Beach. A beach community like no other and one of the most popular Paradise-Beaches on the Paradise Coast.

More Beautiful Paradise Beaches

Naples Municipal Beach
Naples Pier

Naples Pier Beach

Fun at Naples Pier

Nice place to relax by walking on the pier or sitting on one of the benches.

We saw Sharks and Dolphins swimming around.

If you like to fish there are cleaning tables with water for cleaning your catch. The beach and water are beautiful and clean.

Breathtaking

Beautiful is the only word to describe the breeze, sky ,surf, and the people. Awesome views of the ocean, beaches, and dolphins, pelicans.

Delnor-Wiggins-Pass

Delnor-Wiggins Pass

Wiggins Pass is much more than a popular pristine stretch of beach by virtue of its 166 acres. 

Morning Beach Walk

Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park offers easy access to a beautiful natural beach setting perfect for families.

There are plenty of shells on the beech many cool fish swimming right off the shore and even a few dolphins swimming by.

They do have some picnic areas and charcoal grills as well.

If the state parking lot ($8) is full there is a municipal parking lot about 2-3 blocks away which is an easy walk or you can take the trolley if you have a lot of beach supplies.

This beach is awesome...the best in the area!  

It's quieter and prettier than Vanderbilt by far.  

The concession is at Lot 4... which is great on a hot day... I think all the lots have a bathroom.  

I was by myself and parking all day was $4 ($8 for two) which is a steal for the area!  

You can even go and come back for the sunset!  

I'd recommend walking down to the end (past Lot 5)...you can't swim there but it's cool to check out... there's a lot of people fishing around the corner.

Clam Pass

Clam Pass

Few outside of Naples know about this hidden beach, which may appear to be the private beach of a posh resort. But it's not — it's one of a Naples Beach Jewels ...

Outstanding BEACH experience!

Clam Pass provides a cart shuttle over the boardwalk and through the mangroves to access the beach. Load up and spend the day. There are food and beverage options at the concession stand (including beer) or bring your own. Rest rooms too!.

Barefoot Beach, 'second best beach in America

Barefoot Beach

Sanibel Captiva Beaches

Sanibel-Captiva beaches are known around the world for its magnificent shelling beaches. The island's geography and Gulf tidal currents result in great quantities of shells washing up on the white sand.

favorite vacation spot!

Captiva is my favorite vacation spot. Like being in the carribean without the long flight. The weather is always perfect, beaches beautiful and walking distance to everything.

The best sunset beaches are Blind Pass Beach and Captiva Beach. ... is one of the finest beaches in Florida and in my opinion it is the best beach on Sanibel.

Sunset!!!

Amazing! A must see!!! Love going to the beach to watch the sun disappear into the sea. One of the most beautiful sights ever!!!

Southwest Florida Shuffle

"From the first of May until the end of October every year is Stingray season on the beaches of Southwest Florida.

The first thing most locals will tell you is to ' The Naples Shuffle' your feet as you walk in the surf. By shuffling your feet, you will scare off any stingrays before you have a chance to step on them.

It doesn't matter how big or small they are, if you step on them they will nail you with the barb in their tail out of defense." alt="Southwest Florida Shuffle"
