“Sunset - every day its different!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2010

We recently stayed for two weeks at Naples and visited the pier on occasions to see the sunset and the wildlife (dolphins, sharks, birds, etc).

The sunset was simply amazing. Each night we visited it was somehow different. Very calming and beautiful to watch. Make sure you take a camera!

The Pier itself is very long and not very well lit once the sun has gone down (with only small orange lights to guide you) but that only added to the atmosphere for me.

On one occasion we saw a nurse shark being caught by the fishermen at the end of the Pier! Amazing! We also saw dolphins swimming under the Pier and many birds and fish.

I would recommend that you take at least one night to go down to the Pier and sample the atmosphere. I don't think you will be disappointed.

The only negative was that parking is by meter and it is not very well signposted (I think the locals want to keep this little gem a secret for themselves! ;-))

“Must see Sunset in Naples, Florida”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2010

When you are in Naples, Florida one thing you HAVE to do is enjoy a sunset at the Naples Pier. It is one of the most breath taking sites in all of SWFL and better yet it is FREE! I love to stand in the sand and watch the setting sun but as you will find out a whole lot of people love to walk to the end of the pier and view the sunset with no obstructions.

“Lovely way to end the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2009

Went to Naples pier for sunset. Very busy with fishermen ( and ladies ) but that gives it a lively atmosphere. So a 40 inch long redfish caught - very impressive!
Watched the sun go down while the pelcans had a feeding frenzy. Tons of other birds as well.
What was wonderful was that as soon as the sun disappeared everyone burst into clapping. Almost primative and quite moving.

Guess you could go every day and a diffrent times and it would be interesting.

Yes - a lovely way to end the day.

“OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2009

The pier is nice to fish off of but not a huge attraction. The beaches and water are great. The pier is just there to walk out onto and fish off of.

“Pretty cool to watch storms come in and the sun set”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2009

We had an enjoyable time walking out to the end of the pier as a storm came in, it was an awesome site. Parking is across the street, and there is beach access. I advise going during low tide if you're seashell hunting or just want to take the kids to splash in tide pools. Lots of seagulls & pelicans and plenty of wildlife under the water too.
