    Calm salt water and sunsets at the beach.
    A great place to go to soak in the Gulf waters and loll on the beach. We usually go in the early evening after the heat of the day has passed. Besides going late means you can see the wonderful sunsets over the Gulf. There are birds walking the beach or swooping overhead which adds a nice touch to the scene. There is a snack bar, changing and shower facilities, volley ball courts, and a parking lot. Unfortunately the lot requires a local resident parking permit.

    Fun family friendly beach
    I loved this beach for a fun afternoon with the kids. It was very convenient because it had a restaurant on site that had a shaded area to eat, clean bathrooms with a changing area and clean sand. Had a great couple days here with my kids aged 1 - 7. Highly recommend it.

    Great, but could be better
    Lovely beach with good facilities. Great views of the sunset if you get there at the right time, which is around 8pm onwards. It does get busier at sunset, so get there early. The only downside to the facilities are the restrooms. Most times these are very smelly and in need of maintenance. There is also a small food stall serving hot food, snacks and drinks.

    Nice beach and they have parking!
    Nice beach! We searched forever trying to find parking up and down and around Naples, so happy to find the actual parking lot here! Paid 10$ for a couple hours which was worth it. Not much of a walk, nice facilities including rinse showers. It’ll be our go to if we come back Naples!

    I definitely recommend this beach!
    This is a really lovely beach. It is currently the only one in the area with both real bathrooms and a snack bar. If you get there very early you may even snag one of the palapas! The parking lot is not big, so on nice warm sunny days plan to get there by 9:30. However, if you do get there later, it’s worth the wait to get a space.

Be aware that the city of Naples will charge $200 for missing payment or expired meters. We were visiting the area and were not aware that a parking payment was required. There were NO visible signs of this and we got hit with a $202 parking ticket. I can understand a $30 ticket but $202??
The beach is nice but crowed with large groups of loud people on the weekends.

This is the whitest sand I’ve come across since leaving Australia.
Parking is $2.50 per hour and there is a good cafe at the beach.
There are also lots of water things and beach gear to hire if you want.

A good location in central Naples. But there is always a problem trying to find parking so you do need to get there early enough in the day. However it’s a short walk from the parking lot to the beach with easy access at many points. The main hub has a good restaurant that does brisk trade in burgers, hotdogs and salads, as well as showers and toilets so you’re able to get changed and have something to eat once you finished on the beach The beach itself is clean and well maintained with plenty of scope for a decent walk along the beach up to the inlets at either end. We saw osprey, dolphins and plenty of other fish as well as pelicans.

Early March is still peak season here and the parking difficulties were enormous in spite of parking not being even free. Most visitors heading to the beach for some sunbathing. The best realistic approach is to park far away and if possible walk to the beach.

I enjoy a great sandy stroll from Lowdermilk Beach- a two mile walk to the Naples Pier is a lovely place to pause, hydrate, visit the pier to see if a dolphin or two is swimming about and then to walk back at a leisurely pace. If a lunch is in order, the Naples Beach & Golf Club has a beach side bar you can enjoy a salad or sandwich. The walk in the other direction to a rocky jetty is another option and a bit shorter to get to. Tap into your inner voice and find that the sand under your feet connects you closer to nature and is medicine for the body and soul!

Beautiful beach with changing rooms and outdoor showers. Waves were a little high but could be due to tropical storms in the gulf. Paid for three hours at the parking meter and thought we added 30 minutes when the reminder text was sent. When we arrived at the car before the additional 30 minutes was used up, there was a ticket for $77 for going over the 3 hours. One second over and it costs you dearly so be sure to keep track of time.

We love this beach and spend lots of time here every time we are in Naples. I especially love this beach for an afternoon or evening trip to the beach. Parking is cheap as a non resident for a post dinner beach trip, not a far walk and there are restrooms and a snack shop.

Nice area neighborhood surrounding public beach area. This place has good parking if you arrive before 9 A.M. Then, pay $3 an hour to enjoy the sunshine. (Definitely worth it when everyone we work with are battling a snowstorm at the same time)! Bathroom facilities and some food available as well. Water seems cold, but it feels good after sunning a bit first. You can wade out in the clear water quite a bit and still stand up. We saw a dolphin swim by only 100 ft. from the shore!

My husband and I love this beach! The sand is so soft and the water is always clear. We often see dolphins swimming offshore and tropical fish in the shallow water. We can just walk up to the snack bar which offers your regular fare but also healthy salads and wraps. All reasonably priced. There are ample picnic tables in the shaded pavilion to enjoy your meal. The bathrooms are clean, well as clean as beach bathrooms can be with sand etc. There are also outdoor foot showers and body showers. The only thing is that parking is VERY limited. The parking lot fills up fast. We usually go early in the morning or after 2:30. There is some street parking to help out but not much. Such a great place! Our favorite!

We went there shortly before sunset just to see what the gulf coast was all about. We were NOT disappointed...until the sun went down. The sand was super soft, the water was super warm and left no harsh salt residue on your skin. However, as the sun set and we started to make our way off the beach and to the car through the park, we were devoured by vicious tiny mosquitoes. The bad news- there was no way to get away from them, the good news- the bite marks only swelled up a little and didn't last past an hour or so.
Definitely going back..., but this time during the day and armed with a mosquito repellent. That water thought...!
