Beach Parking Permits

All Collier County property taxpayers and full-time residents are eligible to receive an annual permit to park at all City of Naples and Collier County beaches for free.

City of Naples residents may obtain a 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 Collier County tax statement reflecting an address in the city limits, as well as current drivers license and vehicle registration. City beach parking permits are valid at all city and county beaches.

City beach parking permits are available to all others for $50 for parking at the city or county beaches without paying an hourly or daily fee.  These permits are available from the cashier at City Hall, 735 8th Street South.

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 for free in metered spaces at city and county beaches, beach ends of city streets, and in any space designated as requiring a beach permit.   City beach parking permits are valid for one year only. 

Collier County residents (outside the city limits) can obtain a 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.

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 website.
