This review refers to the part of Naples south of 2nd Street... This quaint boating-driven community provides an opportunity to create a lovely tour of a unique canals-oriented lifestyle in the southeast corner of Long Beach. Homes’ styles vary from original 1920’s cottages to 21st...More

Lovely place to explore by foot or water(Kayak recommended). During Christmas time, the lights light up the island which makes it very enjoyable to walk. It's the best place to go kayaking through the canals.

This is a walking neighborhood of beautiful waterfront homes. Park your car near the business area and then walk for a couple of hours, taking pictures of the canals, boats, homes and gardens. Would be a wonderful area to paddle through on the water also....More

Bundle up and walk the Naples Canals. So pretty and festive. Plus it is fun to see inside the homes that are so beautiful.
