I am one of the lucky few that grew up on Naples Island. My parents moved there in 1951 and I started school in kindergarden at Naples Elementary School. Naples is a real island connected to the mainland Long Beach by two bridges. Within Naples...More

Southern California is full of great beach destinations. Naples is nice but it does not have the same feel as Huntington, Newport or Balboa (which are all nearby). Some parts are run down and it does not look like it has received a facelift in...More

We also read about Naples Island and were not impressed. Having spend much time on Balboa Island we did not stay long.

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.

Parking was easy in the middle of the Island and then it’s a short walk in any direction to the canal. There is a footpath on both sides and it’s lovely to walk round and take in the beautiful views. As it’s a circle you...More
