Review of Lowdermilk Beach

Lowdermilk Beach

Reviewed February 21, 2014

The beach is fine, really nice - but it is better without the crowds any distance further north or south. Pay to park at Lowdermilk, if you can find a spot and peeps everywhere! Not sure why this is so popular when the beach goes for miles and miles. Just me I guess, oh well!

Easy to access; nice facilities; beach is clean and expansive. Parking can be troublesome on busy days. Must have permit or pay to park entrance fee or you will get a ticket.

I love Naples beaches, but they are so inaccessible. I had always thought how wonderful it would be to live close to beach, but from my experience during January, the beaches almost might as well not be there, due to inaccessibility and paying, paying, paying, watching, watching meters... patience, drive around, looking, looking for a parking place. I just thought public access would be easier, and I have not been anywhere where it cost $3.00 per hour to park...I was really disappointed about this situation..all the beautiful beach pictures are great if you can afford the $500 per night to spend the night and walk out on the hotel's beach; otherwise, very inaccessible. When I relayed this to my friends, they were all totally shocked, as that was one of the greatest appeals of southwest Florida..beaches!

Beautiful beach. Concession stand, picnic tables available (Rita's Ice Cream), very reasonable prices, and good hot dogs. Love Rita's. Also available are chair, umbrella, kayak, paddle board rentals at reasonable prices. Nice sandy beach, found lots of shells, not that crowded, beautiful sunsets. Parking can be a challenge. The lot is not huge. Parking fees are per hour, and affordable. Got there around 11am and there were a number of spots available. But I imagine it fills up toward noon on nice days. Love it!
