Vanderbilt Beach Park is one of the most popular beach accesses, because it is in a prime location near upscale hotels and in the popular North Naples area. Vanderbilt Beach offers wide space for all visitors, gorgeous white sand surroundings, sea oats and rest room access. Vanderbilt beach during season (tourist months), it can be a task finding a spot on the beach, but there is plenty of sand for everyone. If you arrive before 10 a.m. January to March, there will be plenty of spreading room on beautiful Vanderbilt Beach. If you are coming from U.S. 41 (Tamiami Trail), you would head West on Vanderbilt Beach Road and the park is at the end of the road. Parking is free for those with beach parking stickers, otherwise there is a $8 parking fee per day. Vanderbilt Beach Park has opened a new 375-space parking garage for public use. This is a nice expansion on the parking lot that used to only hold just over 120 vehicles. The parking garage is located just West of the Ritz Hotel entrance a few steps from the beach.
