If you want to be surrounded by natural wonder, head about 6 miles north of Naples to Clam Pass County Park. As you walk the length of the park's 3,000-foot boardwalk or take a free tram, you'll pass beautiful mangrove forests (with three species of mangrove trees), plenty of birds and even some alligators. The boardwalk terminates at a serene white-sand beach, where you'll find bathrooms, beach rental spots, picnicking areas and a snack bar.

If you want to explore the wilder part of the park beyond the boardwalk, you can rent a canoe or kayak and get a more up close view of the 35-acre park.

The park is free to enter but there is a fee to park. To get there, be sure to double check your map. As some travelers note, the entrance is a bit hidden near the Naples Grande Beach Resort.
