Looked around Long Beach for something we haven't done yet while visiting there this weekend. After checking "things to do" on Tripadvisor, it mentioned Naples Island. What a pleasant and energizing walk around many unique and eclectic homes. A systematic and weaving set of walkways around the island gives great views of the canals, bridges and bays. We wish we...

The canal was gorgeous. We rented hydrobikes and biked around the canal. The water and scenery was gorgeous.

We live in Long Beach, and we have been coming down to Naples Island for years. We love to walk and look at all the beautiful homes and beautiful views, especially during Christmas. Walking in Naples Island is wonderfully relaxing and lifts your spirits. I just wish I could afford a home there! Parking is at a premium during Christmas,... More

It takes about a half of an hour at a normal pace to make it all the way around the island. Some areas are not part of the loop, but worth seeing. They have competitions at Christmas, and I'm not sure there's anything like it with the Canal waterfront. Take a Gondola ride, but reserve far ahead and go after... More

Wonderfully situated between the ocean and the mainland, this little treasure has been greatly planned and amazingly executed to present a canal extension from the ocean and creating a breath-taking well organized habitat. I encourage you to visit it. There are plenty of restaurants and coffee-shops surrounding the area and plan on a nice walk to the oceanic beach that... More

Next time i may try the paddle boarding here on the still no wave area of the canals. It's an incredibly picturesque area to walk around the island and see the lovely houses and canals. A hidden area of LA many don't know about.

We just happened to see this island after finishing the Queen Mary Ship Visit. It was worth it. A short stroll over the road/ bridges brings you to the spectacular beach. Children can play in Mothers Beach. Lot of water activities available

One of Los Angeles' great surprises are its two communities named after Italian cities. Naples is east of Long Beach adjacent to Belmont Shores. The community is composed of one large island and several smaller ones with a canal that encircles one island. This is the place to go. Both sides of the canal have walkways that keep you close...

You can walk along the canals and see the houses very easily. Lots of variety and very lovely. Just turn off of the main road toward the island and there are places to park.
