Long walk on short pier

It's a short walk on Naples Pier before you have to turn around.

But did you know it used to be the only road out of town?

A brief history
of Naples Pier

That was before south Florida had roads.

Residents, tourists and supplies all traveled to Naples by boat.

What we know today as Old Naples was the entire town.

All the rest of modern-day Naples was swamp.

Today the closest remnant of the swamp is twenty miles away.

Now that is a long walk!
