Most beach parking at the west end of Avenues in the City are open to permit holders only, along with some metered parking spaces. Beach parking permits, good at City and Collier County beach parks and access points, may be purchased by non-residents for $50 and are good for one year.  You may purchase this beach parking sticker from the Cashier at Naples City Hall, 735 8th Street South. Parking meters take quarters only, with each quarter allowing 10 minutes of parking, or a total of $1.50 per hour.  There are no vendors that will provide change, so plan to bring your own quarters.

Two parking areas have multi-space parking meters. If you visit Lowdermilk Park or the Naples Pier, you’ll find the “pay to park” machines. These machines, located near the entrance to the parking area, accept coins, bills and VISA/MasterCards.   Every ten minutes of parking costs $.25, or a total of $1.50 per hour.  When you exit your vehicle, make a note of your parking space number, because you’ll enter that information into the parking machine.

There may not be clear signage stating that the parking spaces are metered - be very aware of where you are parking to avoid being ticketed. 

Most parking violations (tickets) at the beach ends cost $32, although some may be higher, such as parking in a no-parking zone or in a handicapped zone.  Therefore, please be sure to follow the parking regulations to avoid a parking ticket.
