Vanderbilt Beach

The shimmering pristine beaches beckon at every vantage point, from the lush green golf courses to the high-rise condos.

Welcome to Vanderbilt Beach

Casual elegance and sandy white beaches establish the inviting atmosphere of this one-of-a-kind, upscale community.
Tranquil, unassuming, and yet altogether spectacular, Vanderbilt Beach is a halcyon community where urban comforts, high-end luxury, and jaw-dropping natural surroundings meld together to form the perfect paradise. Here, the shimmering pristine beaches beckon at every vantage point, from the lush green golf courses to the high-rise condos. 
Vanderbilt Beach is classified as an unincorporated community within Collier County, just above Pelican Bay as part of North Naples. Once the site of simple farms and open space, Vanderbilt Beach is now considered one of the area’s top luxury developments and an ideal place for nature lovers who want a home base close to the action of Naples without all of the urban bustle. 
While Vanderbilt Beach is primarily considered a condominium community, the neighborhood is still flush with plenty of captivating single-family homes and spacious estates. Multimillion-dollar stunners in lavish contemporary Mediterranean styles are the standard in Vanderbilt Beach, and homes typically come with extensive amenities, astonishing panoramic views, and the highest level of luxury design.

Local Lifestyle

Part of the allure for those looking to buy in the Vanderbilt Beach area is, of course, the Vanderbilt Beach itself, whose wide shoreline of white, sandy beach epitomizes the ideal South Florida waterfront. A true paradise for boaters and water lovers, Vanderbilt Beach also puts residents next to the Vanderbilt Channel and its waterways, which lead all the way to the Cocohatchee River and out into the Gulf.

Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping

With a surplus of incredible 5-star resorts and top hotels, it should come as no surprise to learn that Vanderbilt Beach’s culinary scene is rich in award-winning restaurants. BALEEN at LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort has a coastal feel, amplified by the outdoor terrace seating and signature seafood dishes. 
The diversity found among the culinary offerings of the Ritz-Carlton Naples truly dazzles, and visitors can find an atmosphere for every occasion. At Gumbo Limbo, for example, the sunset views and sumptuous seafood lend themselves naturally to a romantic, breezy date night, while the astonishing elegance of The Grill is the ideal environment for momentous celebrations. The floor-to-ceiling glass doors at Terrazza allow diners to enjoy awe-inspiring vistas with their authentic Italian cuisine, and the sleek interior of Dusk makes this sushi hotspot feel like a secret hideaway.
Plenty of dining options exist outside of the area’s premier resorts, too, including those like The Turtle Club. The restaurant’s locally sourced seafood and exquisite coastal fare are best enjoyed directly on the sand, where diners sit at umbrella-shrouded tables. Entirely unique, The Cave Bistro & Wine Bar has a swanky, underground feel that matches its impressive lineup of specialty wines, cocktails, and sophisticated dishes.

Things to Do

When locals aren’t frequenting LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort or the Ritz-Carlton Naples for their many amenities — including revered spas, sparkling pools, and private beach access — they’re often found taking in the bounty of the great outdoors. Clam Pass State Park’s magnificent beauty makes the perfect backdrop for adventurers of all skill levels, adventurers who fall in love with the scenic boardwalk and more than 35 acres of pristine coastal habitat. 
Fashionistas and those looking for a little retail therapy will appreciate the close proximity to the area’s upscale shopping complexes, including the high-end trove of Waterside Shops. Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Tesla are just a few of the luxury brands available for perusal at this elegant retail mecca, conveniently located next to the area’s other premier retail center — The Village Shops on Venetian Bay. A little closer to home, Mercato has an invigorating mixture of retail and entertainment, from live performances to trendy fashion boutiques and lifestyle services.
