Best Sunset View
The Turtle Club
You can walk right off the beach to The Turtle Club (239-592-6557) at Vanderbilt Beach Resort. You may want to dress up a bit for dinner, but you will still have one of the best views of sunset over the Gulf that you will find at any Naples restaurant. Do not be fooled by the casual beachside patio. The Turtle Club serves serious food inside and out. Don’t miss the Oysters “Turtlefeller” for an appetizer or as dinner with a petit filet. Seafood dominates, with a few exceptions. Lightly blackened sea scallops with apricot horseradish glaze is one house specialty.
With tables placed directly in the sand, on the outdoor deck and inside glass walls, Baleen at LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort does not have a bad table. Make your reservation early to sit outside at sunset time for front-row seats. (laplayaresort.com/naples-baleen, 239-598-5707)
