The majority of couples agree: The most romantic part of a getaway to Naples, Florida, is the beach. Whether for a morning stroll, a midday sun and swim visit or to watch as the sun sinks into the warm gulf waters, the beaches of Naples promise cherished moments to stir love and sentimentality.
The Naples, Bonita Springs and Marco Island area has more than its share of sun-kissed, gulf-lapped, white sand beaches. This list finds the most romantic of them, including the Naples Municipal Beach and Pier - just steps from downtown Old Naples. No romantic vacation is complete without a shared sunset celebration and stroll along the historic pier.
Much of what is romantic about the Naples area dwells in or interacts with the natural world. From kayaking and sailing into the sunset to hiking along a swamp boardwalk and strolling among tropical gardens, romance blossoms in the great outdoors of Southwest Florida.
For more cosmopolitan pursuits a deux, hit Fifth Avenue South for its great dining and doing scene day or night. It offers everything from art galleries and theater to clubs and coffeehouses. After an active day in the wilds or on “the Ave,” as it is called, book a candlelit couples massage at one of the many resort spas that truly excel at pampering.
