Came to visit via a cruise ship port of call afternoon with friend. With limited time and not wanting to get into a car or bus tour, my friend and I opted for an active walk down the beach front, thru Belmont, and to Naples for some kayaking. A great time was had! The canal system is entertaining by kayak,... More

I am not sure why this is seen as a resort or attraction. It is typical Florida/Ca houses around something trying (and failing) to resemble Italy. looked hard to find somewhere to eat and failed. Suggest you give a miss.

It's a great place to kayak around. However, all there is to see are fancy houses. Therefore, you are better off grabbing a kayak, paddling around the bay and canals if you want to see the houses instead of driving around a neighborhood.

Naples is well worth the drive if you're in the area! Gorgeous Meditteranean-style homes along the canal walkway, reminiscent of Venice. People who live here are friendly, offering greetings as you walk by, and they tend their lovely gardens with care. They even have gondolas and stripe-shirted gondoliers! The bay and canals are placid, lending themselves to kayaking or just... More

A great place to visit. Visiting makes you feel like you stepped back into the old days of Long Beach history. The docents are dressed in clothes from the olden days of early California History.

Nothing really special about. Just crowded houses next to each other is about it. I was disappointed as II was expecting something like Balboa Island in Newport Beach. What a letdown this was.

This is a great place to go kayaking or paddle or bring your own stand up paddle boarding. They have beautiful Christmas lights on the homes and a boat parade each year or you can cruise around in a Duffy boat. The 4th of July is a very busy day there. It is so much fun watching the kayackers if... More
