Enjoyed the area sights and spent a relaxing afternoon at a beachfront park. Great place to relax with picnic area, playground and shaded grass area next to beach. Best of both park and beach all in one.

This little island goes all out for the holidays. Almost every single home lights up their homes and some even put on a bit of a show. There is a boat parade one night. Don't miss it - you'll feel like a kid again. You can rent an electric boat and see the lights from the water or walk up... More

I go to Naples Island several times a year. It is only 5 miles from my home but a pleasant place to visit. Naples Island is a little island within a lager island. It is very beautiful (and expensive) houses on a charming circular canal. Of course the best time of year to go is during the holidays which the... More

Compared to the more shopping-intensive Belmont Shore just over the bridge to the west, Naples Island is mostly residential. But they've run with the Italian theme, from the street names to the gondola rides to many of the restaurants. You'll find some excellent eats along 2nd Street, including foodie bars like Crows, Nico's and KC Brannigans, and Naples Rib Company,... More

Cute little islands (with access via small bridge) in the 2nd street area of Long Beach. It's more for residents and not really a touristy place....

Southern California is full of great beach destinations. Naples is nice but it does not have the same feel as Huntington, Newport or Balboa (which are all nearby). Some parts are run down and it does not look like it has received a facelift in some time. A few businesses in the area are trying but this place needs intervention... More

Naples Island is a beautiful community. There are several excellent restaurants ... I recommend Michaels. Mother's Beach is a great place for people with babies and young children. There is a playground an shallow swim area in the ocean. The beach has no waves.

If you are in the area around Christmas, this is a a must see. Everyone decorates their houses beyond belief. If you have small children, this will be something they will never forget. Also a fantastic place to stroll around on a nice day.

It was a very pleasant walk, we came on a Monday so there we hardly any people. We didn't do any paddle board or boat rides, but just the same it was a very nice walk.
