Spending time in one of our Naples, FL vacation rentals is a great way to experience this charming city in southwest Florida. Home to sprawling estates, miles of white sand beaches, and plenty of fun in the warm sun, sand, and Gulf of Mexico surf, Naples attracts beachgoers and sun-worshippers seeking a sun-drenched vacation with plenty of activities, but without the large crowds typical of other south Florida destinations.
Outdoor Activities in Naples, FL
Not only a location for beachside relaxation, Naples is a popular place for Florida vacation rentals for anglers looking to reel in a big catch. Tucked in between Bonita Springs to the north and Marco Island to the south, Naples offers miles of lush mangrove-lined bays and coastal flats in which to reel in trophy tarpon, rod-bending grouper, and many more oversized fish. You might even spot a manatee or two during your fun day of fishing the local waters, so keep your eyes peeled!
If you prefer to stay dry, there are plenty of options, too. Take a nature walk among exotic swamp landscape at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary to view egrets, herons, alligators, raccoons, and many more swampland creatures living on 13,000 acres of protected coastal wilderness – so don’t forget your binoculars or camera! If you golf, our Naples, FL vacation rentals give you quick access to a variety of top-notch courses that are equally suited for both casual golfers and pro-level players. Book a tee time on the verdant par 71 championship course at Eagle Lakes Golf Club and take in the natural beauty of the surrounding Everglades as you tee off.
Speaking of the Everglades, Naples is an excellent location for day trips to explore Florida’s only national park. The northwest entrance to Everglades National Park lies just 36 miles south, beginning in the Big Cypress National Preserve. Take a guided airboat tour and spot 10-foot long alligators as you wind your way around the swampland.
