Clam Pass Park and Beach

One of the best parts about coming to Naples, Fl is the amazing scenery.

What is Sea Turtle Nesting Season ?

Just when we believed "Season" was over! A new type of season is upon us beginning today. May 1st is the official start of Sea Turtle nesting season in Naples FL.

Please remember that local laws prohibit lights (including lights from mobile phones) visible from the beach between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. during the annual turtle season from May 1 to October 31. The reason is that turtle hatchlings emerge at night and are guided to the water by the lighter Gulf horizon. Click here to read more about Sea Turtle nesting season.
