Things to do in Naples

If you're looking for things to do in Naples you have found the right place.

Since we have the beach here, there are all sorts of water activities like fishing, paddle boarding, body surfing, boating and more.

In addition you can stay on land and cruise around on a bicycle, scooter, or segway...

Then there's the dozens of golf courses to choose from, a variety of restaurants, places to shop or walk around, and lots of nature/wildlife (which I'll tell you about below).

Beach and Water Activities

Clam Pass
One of my favorite beaches because of all that it offers. There's a shuttle that takes you through the mangroves (on a boardwalk). You can also choose to walk but there are great views here. A super awesome place to kayak or canoe through the beautiful backwaters.
