About Parking at the City of Naples Beaches
Beach parking in the City requires the resident or visitor to have a beach parking permit, feed the parking meters, or pay-by-space and this is enforced year round. The money collected from beach parking is used to renourish and maintain our beautiful beaches.
Beach Parking Permits
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.
