of the sun, but you will have to be early to get one!
Many of the popular
beaches in the world I have visited are lacking some sort of ‘refuge’
from the hot scorching rays of the sun! It is evident there has definitely
been some good thought put into the planning of this beach by someone!

Naples Beach Parking
The residents of Collier County pay for beach permits in their
Beach parking permits can be picked up at various
designated locations in Naples.
The cost of the Collier County Beach Parking permit sticker is $50
and is an annual Beach Parking Permit for visitors and part-time residents
who do not own property in Collier County. This permit gives
unlimited parking at the Collier County beaches and parks, for a year.
If you are a visitor and have your car in Naples or are renting a car, I would strongly suggest purchasing the beach parking permit for $50.
It’s well worth the cost and the convenience.
It is possible to just ‘pay as you go’ at each of the Collier County Parks and Beaches.
Whether ‘your thing’ is a hot game of frisbee with your kids, bouncing off the waves on a jet ski, bird-watching or taking in a sunset, there’s a Naples beach for you!
So kick back, relax and ENJOY!!!! AFTER ALL, THAT'S WHY YOU'RE HERE!
