Seeing the Naples Pier at Sunset

Published on June 15, 2019 by Teresa Luber

The Naples Pier at Sunset

The historic Naples Pier is located on the Gulf of Mexico at the West end of 12th Avenue South. The Naples Pier is a favorite location for sightseers and fishermen with plenty of space to cast a line. The Pier features restrooms, showers, a concession stand with covered eating area, and beach supplies.  It is one of the most photographed piers in the United States and even an amateur photographer can get a great shot during the sunset hour.

A Historic Landmark

The Naples Pier was originally built in 1888 as a freight and passenger dock. It was first constructed by newspaper man Walter N. Halderman, founder of Naples.  The pier was initially to act as a location for loading and unloading goods and baggage to help local commerce, and to serve a hotel located across from it at the time. After its construction, the Naples Pier became a popular location for social gatherings like parties and dances.

In 1922 most of the Naples Pier was destroyed by a fire from a discarded cigarette.  It was rebuilt in 1924 extending it's length to 1,000 feet.  The pier has also had several renovations due to hurricane damage, the latest of those in 1960 and 2015.

Completed, the newly renovated Naples Pier remains a monument to the local lifestyle and culture.  It is also a major attraction for both locals and tourists alike to visit while in Naples.

Parking at the Pier

Parking for beach access in the City of Naples requires the resident or visitor to have a beach parking permit, feed the parking meters, or pay-by-space. This is enforced year round.

Parking Rate:
Cost is $0.25/6 minutes
$2.50/hour
Credit/Debit Card: Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover
Cash: Quarters only

Features of the Pier

Fishing from the pier does not require a fishing license, as the City of Naples has purchased a bulk fishing license for the Pier. The beach at the Pier also features volleyball nets and is one of the best places to catch a spectacular Naples sunset.
