The Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club, offers it all: The Gulf of Mexico, great pool, snack bar, outdoor dining, and the hidden jewel of a beach Bar call  :

 "Sunset Beach Bar" and "a Jimmy Buffets sharkhead atmosphere" coupled with great "Sunsets" and live music. 

Home of the "Sunday Sunset Concert on the Beach". Don’t worry if you’re not staying there. All are welcome. Pull up and park the car or do valet parking. To the left of the hotel is hotel parking and meter parking. If you arrive after 5 or 6pm convenient parking will be gone. Also gone will be bar seats

Go straight through the mezzanine to the glass doors where you'll see the Gulf of Mexico. Beyond the doors leads to the outside dining room, pool, pool snack bar, Sunset Beach Bar & and the beach in all its splendor.

Most if not all Naples beaches are great for shelling at low tide, after a storm or early (real early) in the morning. When you go into the water, do the  Naples Shuffle.

After a morning of shelling its time for breakfast at the outdoor beach dining room. Very nice. After breakfast a quick change for shopping. Off to Mercato Center or Third Street South to shop and take a late Sushi lunch before return to the Hotel.

Up to the room, first things first, a trip to the mini bar and quiet time. After a nap, begin fresh with a intimate discussing on where to go for dinner.

Naples is privileged with outstanding Chefs and superb locally grown restaurants.

Hi-End signature restaurants, local favorites, There are many great choices. I strongly recommend restaurant & attraction planning before you arrive in Naples. The knowledge gained here will assist you in having a great vacation.

awaiting for the sun to set.

Dinner under the stars, Sunday Night Sunset Concert, families, lovers and people who enjoy people will all be there. Soak up another breathtaking sunset, listening to the music and dance the night away.

I know I haven’t talked much about the beach here but trust me it’s great. This will be a vacation everyone will remember.
The memories are free. Welcome to another day in paradise.

The last of the downtown Naples Beaches is a favorite of mine. Only the locals know about this beach. Drive south down Gordon towards Port Royal. The last street on the right you will find the 32nd Street South Beach. Enjoy.

It's hidden away from visitor eyes where you can walk to Gordon’s Pass (1/4 mile - the very tip of Port Royal) and fish the pass if I chose too or be alone with your thoughts.

With so few people here, you easily find that perfect spot with little or no effort.

If it’s a lover's rendezvous with a friend, 32nd Street is close to everything you need such as:formerly  Captain Kirk’s Crab Shack  now Captain and Krewe for pick-up orders (like 1/2 dozen cooked crab some Key Lime pie and cold beverages and I'm there.

Wynn's Market (Tamiami Trail next to my favorite bait/tackle store Sunshine Ace Hardware)carries a huge selection of quality individual meals and gourmet foods to go and a fine wine list, perfect for the beach and no fuss or hassles.

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"
