The Naples Pier in Olde Naples
The historic Naples Pier is located on the Gulf of Mexico in Olde Naples at the West End of 12 Avenue South. As one of Naples most popular attractions, the Naples fishing pier was originally built in 1888 as a freight and passenger dock. Now it is one of the most loved fishing piers in all of Olde Naples. It has withstood fires, storms and hurricanes and rebuilt several times but now stands of the public symbol of the area’s history. Now over 100 years old, the Naples Pier is not only a local landmark but a national historical symbol.
The Naples Pier is a favorite spot for sightseers and fishermen alike with a variety of concessions, fishing and beach supplies. One of the best things about the Naples Pier is that fishermen don’t need a license because the city of Naples has purchased a bulk fishing license specifically dedicated to the pier. There’s also volleyball nets, benches and chairs, and a spectacular place to view the Naples sunset. Local Naples resident Dr. Gary Petitt offers Naples Pier talks to educate visitors and locals alike about the history of Olde Naples and the pier itself.
“The Naples Pier is great for watching the sunset, watching fish, and seeing wildlife. The beach around the pier is nice. Over the years I’ve personally seen here various species of fish, sea birds, and even dolphins. Great for if you’re visiting Naples, FL.” [Source]
“They say the sunset from the pier is amazing, but we came during the day with the kids for fun in the sun. The beach is gorgeous, the white sugar sand common in the area. Parking is $.25 per 10 minutes in both the lots and meters nearby. If you park at 12th, you will enter directly at the pier. Watch dolphins, fishers and aggressive seagulls. Its worth the trip”
“Love going fishing its the best place to relax and have fun….. We go almost every weekend…. WE LOVE IT! <3”
