We decided we would try to come back and stay on or near Naples Island, so we can take advantage of the water sports. Walking around the neighborhood and seeing the houses along the canal was wonderful. Loved it.

This place is fantastic during Christmas and I highly suggest a trip there to sight see. Everything's lighted up and it really does give off an enchanted feel. Easy to walk as well. Parking could be an issue, but the surrounding houses won't really mind if you park outside for a few hours. They know it's a tourist spot. During... More

Rent a kayak @ Long Beach, most reasonable rate for 1 hour and tour the Naples Canal....a narrow canal between some interesting homes. It is a calm ride and a great outdoor activity. We loved our time together.

Great place to see unique houses. For a more enjoyable experience, I'd recommend renting a paddle board or a hydro-bike to transport through the canal.

.... but the best is to take a Duffy boat through the canal during the holidays. Naples also has several good eateries on 2nd St, most notably the Naples Rib Co.

This is a great place for a fun bicycle ride. The island is not that big and places to stop for food and drinks are plentiful. Also, you can rent a hydrobike from across the bay and circle the island from the water which is more fun than you would imagine.

...If you enjoy a romantic walk while surrounded by $million plus homes on a scenic waterfront, then, this is the place for you. This City of Long Beach off the beaten path spot will let you burn some calories while enjoying great water views (without the taxes that go with it!). Charming with it's venice like canal, boats and many... More

Had a nice, quick visit to the Naples Island area - as a lead in / preview to our tour and stay aboard the Queen Mary. I think - based on pre -travel website info investigation - that we expected more in the way of shopping and restaurant choices in / on the main shopping street. So we ended up... More

This is where almost every house decorates for the holidays. Animated figures, lights, music, themes, all wonderful to walk the pathways next to the water and canals and see all the houses. Grab some hot chocolate, park on a side street and start your walk at any location. Or go rent the hydro bikes and pedal through the canals in... More
