The historic Naples Pier is located on the Gulf of Mexico at the West end of 12th Avenue South and is a favorite location for sightseers with features that include restrooms, showers, a concession stand with covered eating area, and beach supplies.

According to the American Association of Retired People (AARP), there are 10,000 baby boomers reaching retirement age every day and we know at least some of them are asking the question, Where is the best place to retire? While Naples has certainly made strides in attracting younger, working families following the establishment of several corporate headquarters, including Arthrex, Chico’s, and Hertz, Southwest Florida is still proving itself as a mecca for the more mature and discerning of residents.

The Pier is surrounded by an abundance of coconut palms with each avenue ending at the beach. The area’s history and variety of small cottages, beachfront estates and condominiums are excellent selections to live only within steps to the Gulf and white sandy beach. The Naples Pier in Old Naples is known for a variety of features. Almost every Old Naples Home is within easy walking distance or biking to the Beach, Dining, and Shopping, and a stroll away to ones of Neopolitan’s favorite daily activity “Watching the Sunset at Dusk”
