Good place to rent a paddle board or a duffy and wander around the canals

Naples is a good place to rent a paddle board or a duffy for a few hours and wander around the canals enjoying the California sunshine.

I lived on Naples Island in the '80s and return there for a drive around when I'm in the area. This was my most favorite of all places I've lived. Not only is it on the water with some great views but it is its own little secluded spot. No traffic. No traffic noise. Christmas season is always a good... More

Nearby there is a center that rents kayaks, paddle boards...etc as well as providing lessons. Twice we have rented paddle boards and explored the canals of Naples. The canals have a variety of small boats moored in front of these well kept homes. Many of the homes have rather unique features so it's fun to get your exercise and check... More

This is a jewel of a neighborhood with mostly single family homes but some apartments. It is a nice place to be by the bay and see the beautiful boats and catch the breezes.

Naples is one of the nicest and upscale neighborhoods in SE Long Beach /a "Stones-throw" to Orange county . It's design was themed after Naples Italy with canals and walking paths. Most ( 95% + ) of the houses are restored nicely and many homes are of unique designs with water orientation for many . As children, we would ride... More

Naples is beautiful well worth a visit but a little tricky to locate but persevere you won't be disappointed. Pretty waterways lined with beautiful houses all with their own moorings. It's a residential area so no shops or cafes but you can have a lovely stroll round and admire this pretty place.

Marked by a circular canal, Naples Island is a hidden gem in Long Beach, California. Entering the neighborhood off 2nd Street on Ravenna Drive, an iconic fountain, La Bella Fontana di Napoli, welcomes you to the Colonnade. Here, the heart of Naples leads to a small parkway that looks out across the canal to the beach along Alamitos Bay. The... More

This hidden gem offers all types of water sports. Along the bay one can swim under the watchful eyes of the life guards and the beach slants gently into the bay. On Alamitos Bay one can rent Stand Up Paddle Boards, Kayaks, Windsurfers, and Hydrobikes to use to tour the bay or the canals. Gondolas can be rented and the... More

I visited Naples Island during the Christmas season. They are definitely a spot I will continue to visit year after year with the family. All of the houses participate in lighting up their houses with lights, music, carolers, hot chocolate, and everything else that brings out the Christmas Spirit. I encourage all of you to visit here and witness the... More

The neighborhood is quiet. The people are nice and the shops are expensive but worth it! I love coming here especially in the summer months to do shopping, walking and just lounging around the city.
