The Paradise Coast features more than 30 miles of Naples and Marco Island beaches and the world-famous Everglades. Enjoy a blend of come-as-you-are casual and cosmopolitan, where beach town meets downtown, and where flip-flops and shorts are just as appropriate as a designer dress and sandals. It's a place where tousled beach hair and sand on your shoes is completely expected.
Here's a look at what you could be doing right now along the Paradise Coast:
Sand and Sophistication - Should the shopping urge hit after a morning spent relaxing on the beach and swimming in those warm Gulf waters, venture to nearby Fifth Avenue South and Third Street in Naples or The Esplanade on Marco Island. These shopping destinations offer an international mix of upscale restaurants, art galleries and locally owned boutiques. You'll still have plenty of time to return beachside for a spectacular sunset.
Salute the Sunset - Bid the day adieu with a frosty beverage and toast the horizon's hues of crimson, tangerine and lilac. Breezy beachfront tiki bars whip up specialty drinks and cuisine brimming with fresh tropical flavors (think Jamaican rum-cured salmon and crispy coconut shrimp). As a bonus, there's live entertainment that keeps the party going long after the sunset. In your quest for the perfect libation accompanied by a prime, on-the-Gulf venue, put Quinn's at the Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort, Golf Club & Spa, the Sand Bar at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples and LaPlaya's Tiki Bar high on your to-do list.
Natural Encounters - Go on your own or enlist an expert to discover the unique flora and fauna that live at the beach. Spot pink roseate spoonbills or soaring ospreys at Tigertail Beach, and you'll understand why serious birders call it Southwest Florida's best portion of the southern section of the Great Florida Birding Trail. Take the ranger-guided tour at Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, a diverse 342-acre ecosystem that's home to Loggerhead sea turtles and endangered gopher tortoises. Or head to Everglades National Park, the only subtropical preserve in North America and perfect for bird watching, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, nature photography and much more.
Private Paradise - Make like Gilligan and friends, and find your own deserted island. The Everglade's Ten Thousand Islands boasts many by-boat-only uninhabited destinations and secluded beaches. Rent or charter a boat or sea kayak to reach Keewaydin and Kice islands and Cape Romano.
