This tony little island is home to a good friend of mine. It is full of beautiful, expensive homes with great landscaping, luxury cars in the drive, yachts parked out back. It's great for a stroll. Recommended.

Narrow streets and lovely home with their own docks fill Naples Island. Be careful when you drive there, or park and walk the beautiful streets--much more peaceful.

The island is mostly houses so you are better off to see it from the water. You can rent boats over in the harbor or you can rent a paddle board or kayak at some of the beach stands on the bayside shore beach.
