If you want calm waters, powdery sand, WAY less crowds than the pier and Vanderbilt beach - this is it. The kids love the complimentary golf cart ride through the mangroves down the boardwalk. When not too hot, we walk the mile or so and see a ton of birds. If you have mobility issues or cant ride a golf... More

As with all public beaches in Naples, you have to pay to park, but paying to park at Clam Pass comes with an added bonus- a ride to the beach! The beach itself is located quite a distance (about a mile) from the parking lot, on the opposite side of a forest of mangrove trees. Shade makes walking a pleasant... More

We like the start of the adventure when going to this beach. In the parking lot you get picked up by a golf cart that takes you through the mangroves and down to the beach. The kids love the ride and the drivers are nice and know a lot about the area. Down by the beach the sand is wonderful.... More

Took advantage of the golf cart ride down the boardwalk to beach. This was a nicer beach for us than Wiggins. Walked the pier. Enjoyed seeing an osprey sitting on the shack at the end of the pier! It was peaceful and calm, & we were fortunate to see more pelicans & seagulls, as we saw none at Wiggins Pass.

This beach is adjacent to the Waldorf Astoria. The golf carts will drive you down to the beach and bring you back to the parking lot. Or you can walk, it is only .7 of a mile or an 11 minute walk. The beach was not very crowded and you can rent chairs, umbrellas and lounge beds. The Tiki Hut... More

It's fun to get there. Take the "golf" cart and ride along the board walk. You can also walk but it's quite far if you, like us, have a lot of paraphernalia. In the off season, there are very few people and it's quite usual to see dolphins close to the shore.

To get to Clam Pass, you drive all the way down to the end of Pine Ridge Rd heading west. The entrance to Clam Pass is next to the entrance of the Waldorf Astoria but on the left side. If you have the Collier County beach pass, the entrance is free. If you do not, the price is $8 for... More

$8 to park, you pick up a golf cart shuttle, small beach, Shelly. Better beaches elsewhere. They have a inlet with rope swing which the kids liked but that water in there was a little nasty. Won't be back!

Was in Florida the week of June 27th until July 6th. I obtained a magazine called Must do, it provided information on the area we were in Fort Meyers, Florida. It listed the top ten beaches. Clam Pass Park Beach was listed 2nd on the top 10 beaches. You pay at the machine $8.00 for all day parking. You can... More

If you've been to one beach you've been to all beaches. This beach has a weird setup with the Waldorf and the County. The beach is about .9 miles from where you can park (at the Waldorf). First you park, then you wait in line, (we had to wait 20-30 minutes) to get on the golf cart to the beach.... More
