A must see for any visitor to Naples, Florida is the historic Naples Pier. Originally built in 1888 as a freight and passenger deck, Naples Pier offers history and accessibility to all who visit. The Pier has one of the best beachside views for sunsets and dolphin watching. Fishing is also permitted from the Pier, no license required. Located on the Gulf of Mexico just west of 12th Avenue South, the Naples Pier is at the heart of it all. Lounge on the white sandy beaches surrounding the Pier then take a walk down the narrow gauge train rails spanning the length of the walkway to watch one of Naples’ spectacular sunsets.
Naples Pier has been a popular attraction for tourists and residents alike for many years. With its nostalgic feel and friendly local atmosphere, Naples Pier offers a place to come, sit a while and enjoy the tropical wildlife inhabiting the pier. The Naples Pier has been rebuilt and revamped many times including 1910, 1926, and 1960 after damage from hurricanes. In more recent history, Naples Pier has added a small concession stand and restrooms located about half way down the walkway. A favorite location for fishermen and sunset watchers, Naples Pier offers a unique point of view for anyone who visits.
