Naples Beach Florida sits on the leeward Gulf coast and is perfect for family-friendly beach time. Playing in the waves and taking leisurely walks along the shoreline are a must along this fine soft sandy stretch of beach. The waters are generally calm and at dusk you can often see dolphins in their pods swimming the coast. The most popular section of Naples Beach is near the pier off Naples downtown on 12th street, if you’re looking for a little quieter space head for a beach access farther north and south from that central point.
