One of the most popular seaside destinations in Naples, the mile-long stretch of white sugar sand at Delnor-Wiggins has been rated one of the best beaches in the nation. The 166-acre park is a tropical paradise for beach lovers, boaters and divers. The beach is a popular spot to sunbathe, swim, beachcomb, snorkel and picnic.
At the beach along Wiggins Pass, where swimming is not allowed, fishing is a popular activity.
Boaters can launch their vessels into Water Turkey Bay and travel to the Gulf or up the Cocohatchee River for both saltwater and freshwater fishing.
Kayakers can enjoy paddling through estuaries and scuba divers can explore the hard bottom reef in the Gulf.
At the north end of the island, a tower gives visitors a bird’s-eye view of Wiggins Pass and the surrounding coastal habitat.
The park’s concession offers kayak tours, as well as beach chair, umbrella, paddleboard, canoe and kayak rentals. For tour reservations and rentals of bicycles, canoes and kayaks, call (239) 431-0958
