Walk or bike from house to Vanderbilt Beach. To the left is the Ritz Carlton Beach with Gumbo Limbo Beach restaurant and bar and to the right is Turtle Club and LaPLaya beachfront bars and restaurants. Or simply stop at the down and dirty beachbar at the corner for breakfast, coffee, beer, cocktails…
My favorite beach just one mile away with white powder sand and beautiful shelling. Chairs and umbrellas available right next to the Ritz Carlton Beach. You can go to the Sand Bar a the Ritz and order drinks while you watch the spectacular sunsets. After sunset go to the Beach Box across the…
Want to add to your experience - take our picnic basket along with our red & white checkered beach blanket to the beach for sunset. The basket comes with a little built-in cooler and we provide a candle (battery operated); it's a lovely experience. The sunsets are magical.
White sands, calming white-caped waves, and a whole lot of Florida sunshine! Vanderbilt Beach is only a short walk, bike or drive from Naples Park. There is a drop-off point at the main entrance along with covered and metered parking.

“Whole Foods, shopping, restaurants(lots), bar scene with events, cinemas, ice cream, macaroons, people watching.”
“A few miles south of us; you'll need to drive vs walk/bike, unless you are a good biker. It's the very upscale outdoor shopping and dining place in Naples. Quite, but festive during the holidays. OK for kids that like to be with their parents, as they shop. Bring your stroller, the area is not to big, but not too small. ”
“Snorkeling & swimming draw a busting crowd at this serene beach on the gulf with a relaxing vibe.”
“We are members of the zoo and my kids love this place. The zoo keeper talks are always interesting. The kids love the boat ride and the talks about all the different animals. ”
“This is a great beach. Get there early as parking can be a challenge and is limited. But the parking meters are great and easy to use. They will notify you on your phone when the time is running out. You don’t even have to leave the beach to add more time. There is a small restaurant there. Showers and bathrooms. Lots of open grass space. Bench’s and picnic tables. Even two smaller play grounds for the kids. ”
