Start Planning Your Beach Day

Planning for the perfect beach day

There are a few factors that you must consider before heading out for that perfect beach day. First check the weather. It is important to make sure you are looking good for the entire day. Naples area thunderstorms come on quick and heavy; so make sure that you aren’t unprepared. Check if public beach parking is available. We suggest bringing cash just in case!

There’s a beach for everyone out there!

Choose the right beach vibes

Once your weather is looking good, it becomes time to prepare. We advise you to plan based on the beach you are going to. Figure out your desired beach location with our helpful guide to the Best Beaches in Naples and Marco Island. Also if you show up too late the parking lots will be full and this may change what you have brought or planned for. A successful beach day starts early in Naples and Marco Island. Not all beaches in Naples are the same. Some beach locations have easy parking, restrooms, and concessions. Some don’t have any of those things. Selecting a beach location with the amenities you are looking for is a great way to plan your beach day.

Pub Subs + Beach = A Perfect Combo

Shade, water, & snacks are essential

There are some key decisions that you must decide prior to heading out as well. First is water and shade. Make a plan to have enough water and access to some form of shade. Secondly you want to decide if you are eating on the beach or prior. We highly recommend picking up subs from Wynn’s Market or Publix and bringing them in a cooler with your favorite tasty beverages. Subs should be eaten sooner than later, because that hot Florida sun will turn your cooler into a punchbowl of melted ice soon enough.

Pro Beach Tip!

Bring extra bags

Our community values our beautiful, clean beaches. Make sure to leave the beach the way you found it. Bring a grocery bag to use as a temporary trash bag, a big bag for towels, toys, or books. Extra points for a recycling bag!

Now you know the weather ahead, have some shade, some cold drinks and tasty food for your beach trip.

Get ready for some fun….

Now you are ready for the beach!
