The beautiful occurrence of the sun setting over the Gulf of MexicoGreat opportunities for relaxing, stand up paddling, or fishing
If you're like me then you probably spend a fair amount of time chasing the setting sun around. I visited Naples Florida this past spring and was treated to these stunning sunsets 8 out of the 10 days there. The Gulf gives us east coasters the delight of watching the sun dip out over a large body of water which is quite a treat.
There are a lot of great beach spots in Naples to take in the golden hour but I suggest you plan on getting there early, parking is at a premium in Naples along the beach. You could always ride a bike and eliminate the battle for street parking or visit one of the state parks along the coast as well.
I checked out a couple sections of the beach but for photo making, the Pier in Naples was the best spot.
Make a day of it if you can, pack some food, rent a paddle board, do some fishing and then enjoy the show only momma nature can provide.
