The Turtle Club
Planted right by the Gulf at the Vanderbilt Beach Resort, the Turtle Club (239-592-6557) gives diners front-row seating for the sun’s nightly curtain call. Guests are known to slip off their shoes and dig their toes right into the sand, since Naples sunsets are best met barefooted. The occasion also warrants a little bubbly, and the Turtle Club lists nine different Champagnes and sparkling wines on its extensive list.
Gumbo Limbo at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples
A boardwalk leads from The Ritz-Carlton, Naples, to its most casual eatery—the beachfront Gumbo Limbo (239-598-6644). Toast the day’s end with the tropical Naples Sunset rum cocktail—what else!
