At the Western end of Pine Ridge Road/Seagate Drive is Clam Pass Park. Just next to the Naples Grande Hotel, Clam Pass offers a lot of amenities for everyone in the family. The ample parking lot makes access to this beach available to many people. There is an $8 fee to park unless you have a Naples beach parking permit.
Your day at Clam Pass begins while taking a Golf Cart Trolly through the nearly three-quarter mile long boardwalk. The trolleys run back and forth regularly or you can enjoy a nice walk through the native mangroves while viewing the natural wildlife. Once at the pavilion, there is food and beverages for sale, showers, restrooms, and beach item rentals. You can rent towels and chairs and all sorts of entertaining activities for you and your family such as cabanas, water bikes, and canoes.
Clam Pass is named after the pass at the north end of this beach which connects the Outer Clam Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Here you can search for shells, look for dolphins and manatees, or take a ride on the natural current. On the other side of the pass is the beach that runs all the way until Vanderbilt Beach and Delnor-Wiggins State Park.
