Great spot for smaller kids. Shallow and no large waves. They're are some shells and sand dollars you can find. There is a bathroom, but not really a changing room. They have a snack bar, I am unsure of the operation hours throughout the year. Parking is metered, and the meter only takes coins or a debit card.

I will never forget this place, and would love to retire here (25 years before i can start thinking about that though) Beautiful sand, a good amount of shells for the kids. Even though it is in Naples, once you get onto the beach, if you head south down the beach, it looks really remote and you dont see the... More

You gotta love Lowdermilk Beach! Easy to get to and plenty of parking (free to Collier County residents). The pavilion offers a shady place to sit and have your lunch if you don't bring one and the rest room facilities are large and clean. I live just about 5 miles away and it is also my favorite place to go... More

This beach was very nice and clean! The metered parking was easy to find and easy to pay for. You can use a credit card to pay for parking ($1.50/hour). They have chair and umbrella rentals too ($30 for 2 chairs and an umbrella). It's cheaper to bring your own chairs, but if you don't want the hassle of carrying... More

On my trip to Naples I had the divine privilege to find this lovely location, right next to Doctor's pass. I love it. The beach is clean, the water just perfect, clean and clear. The park has parking space that you need to pay for parking but is just a few feet away from the beach. There are showers, bathrooms... More

A beautiful beach and park not to be missed! A little hard to find but worth the search! Park grounds are clean and restrooms available. Beach is great for watching the spectacular Naples sunsets!

This beach kept is natural aspect. Quiet (low season) Water is clear without algaes. We liked the park meter; since we could choose to stay as long as we want (we prefer to stay for 1 or 2 hours ). You need a bit of planning since you have to bring your own food and drink and there is no... More

Took a day trip to Lowdermilk park. NIce beach, great amenities (food, bathrooms, showers, chair/umbrella/kayak rentals). Only issue is parking because there are not alot of spaces and it is metered. The meter is located by the snack bar and does take credit cards, but get there early to get a spot. Beach was clean and family oriented. Even saw... More

This is a fantastic place to have a picnic, plenty of picnic tables in a nice, grassy area. Very clean bathrooms with showers outside. Beautiful beach!! It can get very crowded on weekends and holidays though! Plan ahead and get a picnic table early.

All of the Gulf beaches in southwest Florida are beautiful. However, if you want the absolutely best one, go to Lowdermilk. Reasons: ample parking at $1.50 per hour (free for handicapped); parking 50' from beach; great pavilion with decent beach food, Rita's ices, even coffee; clean bathrooms; shower & changing facility; great music piped into the pavilion; THE BEST BEACH,...
