The City of Naples allows residents to store non-mechanized vessels on open property at particular areas on the shoreline. There are five sand areas for sailboats, and other comparable vessels. But we will get into this in a bit later. Notwithstanding the sand areas, we have a sum of three kayak racks at two areas, which hold six kayaks or other comparable vessels not to surpass 15′ long per rack.

Speaking of non-motorized or non-mechanized vehicles, one thing comes to mind immediately, and that is cycling. Naples, Florida, is a bike friendly city with more than 30 miles of bike pathways (the city is under 14 square miles) and cycle-accommodating roadways. New street development and zoning is considering the requirements for bike paths and the Naples Pathway Coalition is attempting to extend bicycle and pedestrian walkways all through our city.

The Naples Streets and Stormwater Division is redesigning existing bicycle paths. The city will be putting in new 20-foot long green bicycle pathways at intersections with bicycle paths. These pathways and road markings are designed for use in high-movement regions subjected to vehicular and bike activity.

The City of Naples has confidence in supporting cycling as an activity and an extraordinary approach to get around town. What’s more, the new bicycle paths will serve to enhance security for both drivers and cyclists.

Aside from biking there are other non-motorized but highly physically intensive activities you can do around the city such as kayaking and maybe even hiking. Having said that, we will now give you the information about the boat storage locations we mentioned at the beginning of this article.
