One of Los Angeles' great surprises are its two communities named after Italian cities. Naples is east of Long Beach adjacent to Belmont Shores. The community is composed of one large island and several smaller ones with a canal that encircles one island. This is the place to go. Both sides of the canal have walkways that keep you close...

You can walk along the canals and see the houses very easily. Lots of variety and very lovely. Just turn off of the main road toward the island and there are places to park.

Gondolas, paddleboarders, hydrobikers, and duffy boats frequent the canals in Naples...it's a great place to be year round but especially during the warmer months of summer!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had a wonderful gondola ride through the canals in Naples. We arranged a sunset cruise with several other couples. Very romantic! I would love to do it again!

It's safe for kids to play there, for family to go kayaking or swimming. My family had been there twice this month and thinking of a kayak for going frequently While the kids playing with sun, sand and water, you can enjoy a book or sunbathe

You can rent a Duffy boat and ride through the canals and see beautiful homes, wave at other boaters, have a picnic onboard, and even see a dolphin or seal occasionally ad we did last time. It is truly a must-see when in Long Beach.

Check your map if you've never been. Naples is an actual island neighborhood, with sidewalks running throughout. The only downside is there are not public restrooms. So plan accordingly. There is a place south of there in Orange County, called Balboa Island, that is similar, but bigger, and has public rest rooms.

This is a lovely place to visit. It is close to my home but across the bay from where I used to spend many a summer day as a child...even as an adult. My husband and I enjoyed kayaking through the canals as it is so peaceful and serene to do that. Duffy boats can also be rented close by... More

Naples is Nicer. There a handful of excellent places to eat. The canals are so beautiful to walk around, especially around sunset time. The atmosphere is perfect for a date. Christmas time is one of the best times to walk the canals of Naples because of the Christmas light decorations.

Venice, Italy is one of my favorite cities in the world and this place is designed in a same way. The houses are real nice on the canals. The atmosphere is so relaxing. I took Gondola ride first time when I went there in December. It was holiday season and all the houses were fully decorated on the canals. I... More
