Close by the swanky shops, restaurants and hotels in North Naples, Vanderbilt Beach is a prime location for all. It's a great spot for bird watching and scoping other native wildlife. Although there is plenty of vehicle parking available, spots for towels, umbrellas and picnic baskets on the sand crowd up quickly so be sure to arrive early. Also present are restrooms and showers, a concession stand, bicycles racks, and beach equipment rentals. The beach is open from 8a everyday.
