Beautiful sand. The beach stretches along the Naples coastline. the water is clear..day we were there very calm. A great place to observe many birds..watch pelicans and other birds soar and dive for food. An easy walk to the beach from parking. Attendant will help bring a rental chaise to the beach if desired.

It's a statepark which means you have to pay to enter the park but it is worth the money. The beach is good, there are bbq, showers, restrooms, etc.

Wonderful beach to visit if you want to fish away from the tourists. The summers here are HOT, HUMID, and long. So please make sure you have some shade and plenty of fluids to stay hydrated. Real aloe is great for the sunburn that most folks seem to get while here. The park has plenty of parking (in the summer-too... More

Locals' favorite beach! No high rises, limited admission, so you are never crowded. Great showers and bathrooms. In the winter and spring you must arrive early to get a parking spot promptly-- After Parking lot is full, you will have to wait for someone to leave to get admitted. Bring a picnic!

This is where many people go to have easy access and plenty of parking. Pretty crowded on weekends, but if you get there early you should have no problem. Restrooms, showers, and well maintained for a state park. Boat ramp with access to the gulf all at the same time. Pretty much a secret except for the locals. North end... More

We went to this beach for a day in November, it was a little windy that day and we were told it is typically windier there. The beach is more narrow but looks like a nice walking beach. Plenty of close public restrooms and parking close to the beach too. It was nice, clean and we would go back. We... More

Having lived on the "Paradise Coast" for 14 years, we are ever grateful for those in conservation/ zoning in our area as, unlike the Ft Lauderdale/Miami area on the East Coast, they have NOT totally "paved paradise"... as the song says... in our beautiful area!!! No highrises along this beach, just pristine & natural. We like to drive down to... More

Having spent a couple of years searching for parking spots near to Naples beaches, discovered Delanor Wiggins Pass . The beach is as clean as any I have ever seen, with soft white sand. Great for shelling and viewing the occasional dolphins and Sea eagles which like to visit the area. There are 5 separate parking areas, all of which... More

Worth seeing! Spend a day or two at the beach - swimming, fishing, dolphin watching from shore, and beautiful sunsets

Plenty of parking and a short walk to the beach. Picnic tables, rest rooms, rental chairs and umbrellas available. The sand is very hard packed so you really need an umbrella spike. Costs $6 per car to park. Fishing on the far end of the beach. Some were shelling.
