Naples is Home to 2 of Dr. Beach’s 2014 Top 10 Beaches!


Naples Beaches

Congratulations to Naples for having two beaches in Dr. Beach’s Top 10 Beaches for 2014 list! Both Barefoot Beach (#2) and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park (#10) made the exclusive list.

Dr. Beach has been making his annual Top 10 Beaches list since 1991 and uses 50 criteria, with rankings from 1 to 5, in his evaluation process of swimable beaches. Factors he takes into consideration include beach width at low tide, sand softness and color, wildlife, pests (such as ticks and mosquitoes), available amenities and public safety.

Once a beach reaches the top of the list, it is retired to make room for others.
