This area was recommended by a coworker who has a home in Naples. It was perfect for us, close to everything, good facilities, and we were up close and personal with the ospreys, dolphins, sea turtles and more. Will return!

This has always been our family's favorite beach in Naples because it's not all over-grown with high-rise buildings. It's left very natural and undisturbed. It typically doesn't seem as busy as some of the other beaches, either. It just has more of a laid-back, slow-paced,...More

Found the best shells of my trip to Naples at this state park beach - we went to several parking areas and checked it out in several places.

Well worth the $6 fee. Not crowded like the public beaches. Well cared for grounds. Picnic tables, grills, and plenty of sandy beach. Restrooms within walking distance. Very peaceful here because of a more senior crowd. Even has a boat ramp. Highly recommended.

If you want a beach with a more “natural” feel, this is a great place to visit. Picnic tables, clean restrooms, and shade in the park and a long sandy beach just steps away.

You pay $8 to get in and it's clean, but the sand has a lot of shells. Meaning, it is really difficult to walk. However, it isn't real busy in October but the water was warm and clear with zero waves.

I-75 north, to Immokalee Road exit. Head west on Immokalee Road which will turn into 111th. Then right into Wiggins park.

Any tips regarding Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park (3 Replies)
We will be heading to Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park in May. I've read through a ton of one sentence reviews. Does anyone have any special tips regarding this place? I see that there are essentially five parking areas. Also, that swimming is prohibited as you get farther north near the pass. Finally, it appears that there is a hotel beach near the entrance. I've gotten that information from Google Earth--a fantastic reference, but still not as good as having someone on the ground!

Good place to see dolphins. Last time I went, two of them accompanied me on my walk up to the pass. They were quite close to the shore. It's my favorite beach!
