Parking for Free at the Beach

Nicholas NolanNaples Recreation

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.

The City and Collier County rules are the same by interlocal agreement. 

City of Naples residents may obtain a free annual beach parking permit from City Hall at 735 8th Street South.  The City rules for obtaining a beach parking pass are as follows:

City Residents

Residents must provide proof of residency, specifically, provide a driver’s license and original vehicle registration, both with the same name and address within the city limits.

Non-City Residents.

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 driver’s license and vehicle registration/rental car agreement. All documents should reflect the property owner’s name name.

City beach parking permits are valid at all city and county beaches.

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.  

Do not forget to renew your permit annually

City beach parking permits are valid for one year only.  Permits expire on the last day of the month pierced on the front of the permit.
