Swift tides rolling through Wiggins Pass define the northernmost beach of Naples, a spread of sun-drenched sand at Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park within sight of a line of condos that stretch southward.
Fees: $4-6 per vehicle
Open: 8 AM until sunset daily
Leashed pets welcome except on beaches
Being able to walk beneath the sea grapes and relax on this natural beach is the reason that Delnor-Wiggins State Park gets packed with sun-worshipers, especially on weekends. The park closes if the parking lots are full.
The 166-acre park is squeezed by urban development but is so thickly canopied by tropical vegetation that it’s easy to lose yourself in nature here. A short nature trail leads to an observation deck over mangrove forests and the sweep of beach, where terns and gulls gather in groups. It’s easy to find pretty seashells along the shore if you arrive early. Bring a picnic and spend the day!
