Beach Parking Permits
All Collier County taxpayers are eligible to receive an annual permit to park at all City of Naples and Collier County beaches free of charge.
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.
Effective October 19, 2011, City Beach Parking Permits will be available to purchase for $50. These stickers are ideal for non city/non county residents or non city/non county property owners who are visiting and wish to park at the city or county beaches without paying an hourly or daily fee. You may purchase this beach parking sticker from the Cashier at City Hall, 735 8th Street South.
Collier County residents (outside the City limits) can obtain their free Collier County Beach Parking Permit at most of the Collier County Community Parks including the Freedom Memorial Park on Golden Gate Parkway and the Collier County Public Library at 650 Central Avenue.
City and County Beach Parking Permits are valid at any City or County beach where beach permits are accepted.
Documentation needed to prove eligibility for a free permit, as well as times and locations for Collier County parks , is
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.
What if we don’t have a beach parking permit?
Many beach ends in the City have parking meters for customers that do not have a beach parking permit. Parking meters take quarters only, with each quarter allowing 10 minutes of parking, or a total of $1.50 per hour. There are no vendors that will provide change, so plan to bring your own quarters.
Two parking areas have multi-space parking meters. If you visit Lowdermilk Park or the Naples Pier, you’ll find the “pay to park” machines. These machines, conveniently located near the entrance to the parking area, accept coins, bills and VISA/MasterCards. Every ten minutes of parking costs $.25, or a total of $1.50 per hour. When you exit your vehicle, make a note of your parking space number, because you’ll enter that information into the parking machine.
Most parking violations (tickets) at the beach ends cost $32, although some may be higher, such as parking in a no-parking zone or in a handicapped zone. Therefore, please be sure to follow the parking regulations to avoid a parking ticket.
The City of Naples provides handicap beach access at a number of beach ends, the City Pier and at Lowdermilk Park. Lowdermilk Park also has beach wheelchairs available.
