Enthralling Beaches of Naples
Visiting Naples Florida Beaches
Some areas in Florida I am familiar with since I have traveled to them often at all times of the year. Knowing what to do in Naples is going to the beaches. Naples is a special place in my heart because its beaches are the most compelling and organic experience I have ever come to known. All inclusive beaches make the therapeutic waters and white sand a luxury.
Most definitely, the cost of living in Naples beyond even the upper-middle-class American's budget. Visiting these beaches recharges my mind and body. My senses lift to the serenity of beingness. I long to return to my secret little heaven on earth.
You fly into Southwest Florida International Airport, which is only about 28-miles from Naples best beaches.
To be near the Gulf of Mexico in southwest Florida with the therapeutic water lapping on my ankles. Sure, I'd go for some high-end shopping with a round of golf. But still, those beaches are calling to me like the Aruba beaches in the Carribean.
The beaches all-inclusive is ideal if you stay at one of the many hotels with beaches and even in Naples you can swim with the dolphins.

Kayaking in Naples
Naples kayak adventures is an activity you must do with your family or friends while visiting the coast. Several kayak companies offer tours or rentals.
Booking a three-hour tour is the maximum we could handle. But, it's a great way to see the Naples coastal line. Some times it was a lot of work paddling, but we had breaks where we coasted along with your guide. The water is a beautiful green and blue, so worth the effort.
Locals Favorite Beach
Locals say Clam Pass Beach maintains fewer crowds than other beaches crowded, and natural resources abound. The 35-acre park in Collier County features a splendid white sandy beach with coastal dunes and 3200 linear feet of beach on the Gulf of Mexico, over five miles of kayak trails, and acre after acre of mangrove swamps.
All day parking is available. From the parking lot, you take a three-quarter of a mile walk on the boardwalk to the beach, or a free tram ride is available every 6 minutes.
The walk to the beach is a pleasant stroll, which I truly enjoyed with my family. You will see three different types of mangrove trees, red, black, and white. These trees protect and stabilize low-lying coastal areas and play a critical role in coastal fishery food chains. As a result, federal, state, and local laws protect mangrove trees. These trees are unique in that they are salt tolerant.
Don't be surprised if the birds and wildlife put on a show, and you will not want to miss on the tidal bay. Once on the beach, you can rent kayaks, canoes, and sail boards. Other amenities include lifeguard, toilets, and showers, picnic tables, observation tower, and nature trails - a perfect beach for any family.
At the end of Vanderbilt Beach Road is the picturesque scene of Vanderbilt Beach. The 5-acre park drapes the Gulf of Mexico. Often described as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, it is no wonder locals call this beach an adventure in paradise.
There is plenty of parking with easy handicap accessibility to the beach. Many ride their bikes to the beach with bike racks located close to the beach.
Densely populated with tourists and locals, Vanderbilt Beach is near plenty of hotels, shopping centers, and restaurants. Shelling happens in the early mornings while bird watching happens all day.
A hammock is in the park. There are some favorite subtropical vegetations and natural wildlife. I relax and let nature take me to a little bit of heaven as I lay on the beach between cooling dips in the Gulf.
