Naples has about 8 beaches and some more on Marco island. I have visited them all and every one has a different feel. Some are touristy some are for locals. Some you have to get there by boat. If you go there your first stop will definitely be the pier which is considered the top beach in Naples. Usually this is rated a top five beach in the state of Florida and I visit there often. Most of the beaches are huge so you should not feel crowded and on top of people. Lots of great hotels and tons of awesome restaurants. You could visit for a week and not see all of collier county and have a great and relaxing vacation. Plus Naples is close to the Everglades which is another way to spend a day. I love taking visiting friends and family there and showing them top rated restaurants literally in the middle of no where.For what it's worth, if we go to Destin it will be in May or June. We're also looking at Siesta Key or Naples Beach.
I am also looking at Siesta Key (Sarasota), which is a gorgeous beach. My brother has stayed in Siesta Key 3-4 times and likes it. I've been to Siesta Key, but never stayed in a hotel there. The beach is stunning. Lots of stuff to see/do around there, as well.
Bruno, how is Naples Beach? I wasn't considering Naples because I didn't think it had nice beaches. But I'm seeing some impressive beach photos. Naples, itself, is awesome, as you know.
If you go you should do the sunset cruise in the bay. You will never see houses like that in your life. Average price is only 30 million with the top dog selling for 88.
