Every day, this tropical beach paradise beckons visitors to partake in vast peaceful views of the Gulf of Mexico, and experience the many shorebirds and wildlife that gather here every year. Visitors arrive to this park to sunbathe, snorkel the reef, hike, bird-watch, fish, picnic, and search for seashells on a daily basis.
There are specific areas designated for anglers to drop their lines in the northern areas of the park for trophy catches. Boaters will also find the launch area into Turkey Bay easily accessible for most vessels, in order to experience the delicate natural estuaries of the Cocohatchee River, leading out to the Gulf of Mexico.
Guided tours and interpretive programs occur on a regular basis by experienced rangers and volunteers. There is a pavilion available to rent for special occasions, such as weddings and birthdays.
A concessionaire, Naples Beach Adventures, is open in parking Lot #4 with food and beverages and rentals that include paddleboards, kayaks, canoes, umbrellas, and beach chairs. Beach wheelchairs are also available for reservation by the Park.
