Best Places to Watch the Sunset in Naples

by Arelys Alexander

Naples, Florida is famous for its beautiful sunsets that shoot cascading colors across the horizon. Watching a sunset over the gulf has become a tradition in Naples because of its beauty, of course, but because there’s just no better place to be when dusk decides to come.

There’s no shortage of spectacular vantage points around town. These are a few of the most unique and interesting places to watch the sunset in Naples, Florida.

Vanderbilt Beach Park

Vanderbilt Beach Park has become a popular landing place for our friends from the north. On the weekends, the beach is bustling with people of all age groups who enjoy sinking their toes in the sand, swimming in the gulf, or taking in the gorgeous sunset at dusk. During your vacation, you will want to head out early to get a good parking spot because, even with a 3-story parking garage, parking can be a problem. If you’re spending some time in the sun before it sets, make sure to bring a folding chair, some towels, sunscreen, and something to eat.

Gumbo Limbo 

Gumbo Limbo, located at The Ritz-Carlton in Naples, Florida, is a beachside retreat that offers a relaxed and inviting atmosphere perfect for watching the sunset. This casual dining spot is renowned for its picturesque ocean views and soothing ambience. Guests can sip on specialty cocktails and enjoy a variety of casual menu items. The combination of delicious cuisine, a relaxed atmosphere, and stunning ocean vistas make Gumbo Limbo a must-visit destination for anyone looking to experience a memorable sunset in Naples.



Baleen is a restaurant housed within the popular LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort in Naples FL. It is only a few blocks north of Turtle Club, and also includes dining options right on the sand. You can also sit indoors in the air conditioning, grab a drink from the bar, and enjoy the view through large windows. The sunset view will not disappoint, and the outstanding menu will make the experience all the more memorable.
