Fodor's Expert Review Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park

Naples Beach Fodor's Choice

Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.

This wide, virtually untouched expanse—about 166 acres—of open beach makes visitors feel transported from the bustling high-rises and resorts just a few blocks south. A full roster of eco-inclined features, like a designated fishing zone, hard-bottom reef (one of the few in the region and close enough to swim up to), boat dock, and observation tower hooks anglers, nature lovers, and water-sports enthusiasts drawn to the peaceful, laid-back vibe. Parents love the educational displays on the local environment and the ranger-led sea turtle and birding programs, not to mention the picnic tables, grills, and plenty of shade offshore. A concession stand offers food, drinks, and beach gear easily accessible to those less inclined to self-catering. Amenities: food and drink; parking (fee); showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: snorkeling; solitude; walking.
