The Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club is not just all about the golf, it’s about the ocean and the beach too. They do say that, “With all that we offer at The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club, nothing provides more entertainment than our 7 miles of white-sand beach.” We all know that Florida’s Gulf Coast is home to some of the best beaches in the world, and I can tell you that it would be tough to find a better stretch of snow-white powder anywhere else in the Southeast.
There’s nothing quite like an early morning walk. If you rise early, just before dawn breaks, and take a quiet stroll along the water’s edge, the gentle sea breeze will stimulate all those dormant senses; breakfast is always so much better after an early morning walk; it stimulates the appetite. Well, it does mine.
During the day, you can search for shells, rent a kayak, pedal boat, paddleboard or sailboat and enjoy the warm gentle waters and cool Gulf breezes. Ok, so that might be a little more than I need to handle, but give me a good book and a beach chair under a wide umbrella and I need nothing more, except for a really cold one, of course.
Oh yes, please don’t forget the suntan lotion. The sun in south Florida can get quite intense.
And there’s more: if you prefer fresh water, the hotel’s multi-pool complex is just a few steps from the sand. There’s a large pool that’s perfect for play and exercise, and a smaller, more secluded, adult-only pool where you can relax and spend a quiet afternoon with a good book and a cold drink. The complex also includes two whirlpools, locker rooms and the Poolside Bar & Grill, which serves cool drinks along with burgers, fries and such.
Once again, if it’s a family golf vacation you’re planning, your entire family will be well catered for.
