Wiggins Pass State Park | North Naples
CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO HURRICANE REPAIRS WITH NO ETA ON REOPENING
Naples #1 most requested location
Features: driftwood, boardwalk (currently under repair), multiple tree canopies, tall grassy field, sandbar in low tide
What you get here you don’t get on other beaches: Coastal background variety and no building obstructions behind us. This is the BEST location in Naples.
Little Hickory Beach Access
Features: Rock jetties, greenery, secluded inlet, isolated with less crowds (10 minute walk)
Old Naples Town & Beach
Features: Street parking, town vibe, walk to pier beach for both settings. Best for individuals, couples, business, and small group. Not recommended for families.
Sanibel at Tarpon Beach
Features: Beach, green space and pathway, small tree grove, sea oats, bridge, better sunset views than on the Lighthouse side of island
Marco Island South Access
Features: Rock Jetty, wide beach, tourist vibe, more crowds and buildings
There is one public lot near the beach that can be full during season. If shooting on Marco without private beach access, this is where we go.
Wedding Beach Naples
Features: View of the Pier, the Wedding Beach green space, close to 5th Avenue South area. This location is empty at sunrise and can be quite crowded for sunset!
Please note it is a popular wedding spot and I do not have insight into when the green is booked. Large families are not recommended here at sunset.
Estero Koreshan State Park
Features: Rustic preserved community, old buildings, bridges, boat dock, dirt pathways
Hotels and Beachfront Property: Excellent when the beaches are not overly touristy (think Vanderbilt beach area) or crowded with chairs and umbrellas
What I look for: A beach that is quiet without tons of beach goers, some green space or other backdrops between the hotel/condo/beach like a courtyard or boardwalk that will add some variety to our shoot.
These areas are examples of great starter locations before we move to the beach:
