Most people find that 'doing nothing' here is just fine...however, if it's entertainment you want, it's all within a 10 minute walk or a 2 minute drive. The popular '2nd Street' is where all of our fine, casual & eclectic dining can be found, along with crafty and unusual boutiques, great shopping and fantastic people watching. The ocean is pretty much all around you in Belmont Shores; look in every direction and there is a beach to be found for a picnic or to kick your feet in the sand. Water sports are everywhere; paddle boards, kayaks, water bicycles are all available for rent. If you want the thrill of the ocean, you can find Whale watching almost year round, full & half day fishing boats, & jet ski rentals. The Naples Canals are like a piece of heaven from Italy but just a short walk or kayak to enjoy the spectacular homes and villas just like Europe. Just walk through, particularly during November and December when the residents go all out to decorate in a magical splendor. It's a great date-night out just viewing the neighborhood homes in Naples and Treasure Islands. If you prefer to tour by BOAT, ask about our $150 Electric Duffy Boat tour w/wine and cheese.
