Beach Parking Permits
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. City of Naples residents may obtain a free annual beach parking permit from City Hall at 735 8th Street South.
Residents must provide proof of residency, specifically, a driver’s license and original vehicle registration, both with the same name and address within the city limits. 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. City beach parking permits are valid at all city and county beaches.
The City no longer is selling non-resident beach parking passes.
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. City beach parking permits are valid for one year only.
Collier County residents (outside the city limits) can obtain a free Collier County beach parking permit at most of the Collier County Community Parks including the Freedom Memorial Park on Golden Gate Parkway and the Collier County Public Library at 650 Central Avenue.
Beach Parking Rules
- All parking spaces require a payment or a valid beach parking permit.
- No littering
- No glass, animals, or fires allowed on the beach.

Beach Parking With a Handicap Sticker
Any disability permit holder may park at any space without payment, in accordance with Florida Statute 316.1964. The only requirement is that the permit holder is driving or being transported. A disability permit does NOT allow parking in a bus loading zone, fire zone, handicapped access aisles, any areas posted as no parking zones, or parking in excess of the posted time limit. Also, no parking is allowed at any metered beach parking space between 11pm. to 5am
Pay Stations / Pay-by-Space
All of the Naples parking areas has multi-space parking meters, including Lowdermilk Park and the Naples Pier. These machines, conveniently located near the entrance to the parking area, accept coins and Master Card and Visa. Each parking space is designated with a number that must be entered into the pay station.
The pay stations at the Naples Pier offer Extend-by-Phone. Extend-by-Phone service allows consumers to receive parking expiry reminders and extend the time for pay station-initiated transactions via text messaging (SMS). Extend-by-Phone does not require a user account. Extend-by-Phone is compatible with virtually all mobile phones and delivers value for both consumers and parking operators.
