Residents of the City of Naples may obtain their free annual beach parking permit from City Hall at 735 8th Street South.

Residents must provide proof of residency, specifically, a drivers license and original vehicle registration, both with the same name and address within the City limits. Non-residents who own property in the City limits must provide a copy of their Collier County tax statement reflecting an address in the City limits, as well as their current drivers license and vehicle registration.

City Beach Parking Permits are valid at any City or County beach.

Documentation needed to prove eligibility for a free permit, as well as times and locations for Collier County parks , is online at the Collier County Government web site.

Beach parking permits must be firmly affixed to the inside of the windshield in the lower corner of the driver's side of the vehicle. They are not transferable. Vehicles with valid beach permits may park free of charge in metered spaces at City and County beaches, beach ends of City streets, and in any space designated as requiring a beach permit.

Beach parking permits are valid for one year only. Observe the month that is punched on your beach parking sticker, and remember to replace the permit before the month ends.
