The Beauty of the Paradise Coast is not limited to its beaches and teeming wildlife, this blessed region is also home to the most succulent seafood that’ll ever grace your lips. These delectable seafood delights are fished out of the Gulf of Mexico and the waters of the Everglades. So the next time you’re visiting this wonderful place which consists of Naples, Marco Island and the Everglades, don’t forget to try the grouper, snapper, and the famous stone crab. But if you have a more adventurous palette, may we interest you with some gator meat or fried frog legs?

The best way to enjoy these dishes, may we add is on the water, which is why the many waterfront restaurants around the region are a sure winner in our books. Pro tip: ask the locals where they usually go out to eat; they know the best places around. They have first-hand knowledge on the joints that serve the freshest seafood, as in the kind that’s out of the boat and into the frying pan fresh.

You can get to the restaurants using your wheels, of course, which allows you to select more spots to stop by and admire the scenery because why not. Or if you have a boat, then you can dock your boat just as easily along some of these restaurants and head straight in for a hot meal. This is actually a good way to end the day after a day on the water.
