Would you and your beau prefer a more casual and cozy setting for date night? If so, then kick off your shoes in the sand and head to Naples Pier at sunset for a special evening together with a spectacular view. Naples Pier, located just off the beach at 12th street, jets 1,000 feet into the Gulf of Mexico. Pack a picnic and time it just right so you can enjoy a homemade meal as the sun goes down. If you’re lucky, you’ll catch a few dolphins swimming alongside the pier to make it an even more memorable experience. Bring a blanket and snuggle up on a bench at the pier’s end for a romantic evening on the waterfront.
