Aqualane / Port Royal

Elegance embodied, both Aqualane and Port Royal reflect the effortless, tropical glamor of Naples in their every feature.

Welcome to Aqualane / Port Royal

Sweeping panoramic views of Naples Bay and jaw-dropping estates create an everyday oasis for the residents of these wealthy enclaves.
Interwoven with glistening waterways that travel out into the Gulf, the exclusive neighborhoods of Aqualane Shores and Port Royal harbor some of the most enviable real estate in the world. Elegance embodied, both Aqualane and Port Royal reflect the effortless, tropical glamor of Naples in their every feature — from the lush, verdant landscaping to the towering mansions and refined community gatherings. 
Aqualane and Port Royale rest side-by-side in the southernmost portion of Naples, home to deep water channels and alluring coves. Well-established, both communities were developed in tandem with the city itself in the late 1930s and have since earned a reputation for incredible prestige and highly sought-after homes.
When it comes to show-stopping residential real estate, few places around the globe have a collection up to par with Aqualane and Port Royale. Already rich with stunning architecture and homes reminiscent of Old Florida’s sophistication, both neighborhoods have seen an increase in brand-new, massive single-family estates and mansions. Multimillion-dollar properties are the standard, each outfitted with the finest luxury accouterments and often primed with private docks. While the architectural styles of newer homes might reflect a more modern aesthetic, every estate is a palatial work of art.

A boater’s paradise, Aqualane and Port Royale both cater to the water-lovers at heart with their abundance of private docks and canals which lead out into the deep Gulf.

Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping

Both Port Royale and Aqualane are minutes away from the vibrant commercial heart of Naples, 5th Avenue South. Laden with the nostalgic charms of Old Florida, this bustling corridor houses an enticing blend of independent boutiques and upscale national brands such as White House Black Market
More than just its adorable shops, 5th Avenue South also contains a multitude of spas, salons, and lifestyle services, as well as much of the city’s wonderful culinary offerings. Leaning into the Italian heritage of Naples, 5th Avenue South is brimming with exceptional Italian eateries, each with its own unique style. 
The romantic décor of VERGINA Restaurant is reminiscent of a Mediterranean dreamscape, while Osteria Tulia has perfected the rustic-chic ambiance. Distinguished by its luxury atmosphere and award-winning cuisine, Alberto’s on Fifth is yet another Naples must-try for gastronomes. BiCE Ristorante has been serving up excellence since 1926, and the gourmet pizza at Molto Trattoria is just as impressive as their traditional menu items. 
For unrivaled French cuisine, hungry diners will want to taste the exquisite creations of Blue Provence and The French Brasserie Rustique, the former of which rests on the calming waters of Naples Bay Downtown. Sea Salt on historic 3rd Street is a trove of delectable seafood dishes, and Sails restaurant serves their seafood bounty in a luxurious European environment. There’s no better location for Mediterranean fare than Del Mar, and the grandeur of Ocean Prime’s venue is only outdone by the sumptuousness of the cuisine.
