Hurricane Ian destroyed all 40 public beach accesses in the Naples area, 37 of which have now been restored to a usable/safe condition.

The public beach accesses north of Doctor’s Pass were some of the first ones City staff tackled. Much of the damage concerned walkways, landscape/beach vegetation, hardscape (trashcans, benches, signage), irrigation and lighting.

With Phase I mostly complete, City staff are now working towards Phase II: making beach accesses beautiful again. Architect/engineering services are developing construction plans for 27 public beach accesses, including Horizon Way, Vedado Way, and Via Miramar. Once plans are approved, the City will bid out the project for construction.

The Admiralty Point public beach access is currently closed while the community works to replace the fencing along the pathway.
