“Park and Pause”

Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park
Ranked #15 of 132 things to do in Naples
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed May 19, 2014

Where: Naples, Florida. You can take Delnor -Wiiggins Road or even take Vanderbilt and come up that way.
Opens: 8am most days with an entrance fee at about $5. It closes by sunset
There are five parking areas along the ocean as well as a boating area. IF , you do not want to park there, and would prefer there is a parking area for the public before the foot of the bridge on Delnor -Wiggins that you may use. It is a brief 5 min. walk to where the park begins. Notice the parking restrictions there for hours.
Along the parking areas are restrooms, picnic tables, boarded walk paths to the beach (very short, makes it easy) , shower (outdoor)/foot rinse, and at area #4 is a rental for beach chairs, etc.
Access #5 is the easiest one to take if you are going to the point to try for a Pompano. Make sure you have any licenses you need for that.
I love this beach. It is clean, quiet, with occasional joggers, walkers, shell hunters. The rangers/staff are very helpful and friendly! It is a place for friends, families, solo shell hunters-the perfect place to push the pause button. Although this is a narrower beach as far as width is concerned it never fails to make the list as a "go to..." when I have the chance to be there.

Nice beach, nice rangers that suggest good places to park. You have to pay to park everywhere, so this is no different.

This beach is very nice and has 5 separate parking areas. The beach is very long but also narrow. This helps to distribute visitors evenly along the beach. One of the best things about this beach is also one of its downfalls as well: There are only so many parking spots which puts a limit on the number of people on the beach. Once the lots are full, however, the park is closed so you need to get there by before 10:00 on weekends or in season if you want to get in. At some point, there will have to be beach replenishment as during high tide the beach gets a little narrow at some points. There are not a lot of shells which makes the beach nice for taking a walk. Try it out!

We really like this place, get there early , it gets busy. You can walk north all the way to Dcotors Pass if you are a runner or walker.
