Stretching along the Southwest Coast, Florida’s Paradise Coast, home to Naples, Marco Island and the Everglades, is a haven of beachfront resorts, water based activities and fun dining. With the Gulf of Mexico as its coast, sunsets here are breathtakingly beautiful. Florida’s Paradise Coast was voted 2014 Golf Destination of the Year – North America by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators, and it is no wonder; with approximately 90 courses decorating the landscapes!
Naples’ white sand beaches, water sports and golf courses will draw you in whilst the older part of the city is a real gem. Families in particular will love a visit to the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens, a historic botanical garden, where lemurs, spider monkeys and gibbons can be spotted and the little ones can even feed the giraffes. For some retail therapy head to the shops of Fifth Avenue South or Third Street South in downtown Naples. Or why not escape to Marco Island, voted one of the top islands in the world by TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Awards, where glorious beaches await you. From wave runners spotting bottlenose dolphins as you go by to kayaking around the 73 miles of local waters, exploring Florida’s Paradise Coast from the water is one of the best ways to experience it. Not to be missed is a visit to the nearby Everglades National Park.
