“35 acres of coastal habitat and preserves”
In Clam Pass County Park, natural resources abound. The Park consists of 35 acres of mangrove forest, coastal dunes and 3200 linear feet of beach on the Gulf of Mexico. There is a boardwalk, which provides access to the beach through a mangrove forest. The boardwalk is about three quarters of a mile long and can be walked or you can catch a ride on a free tram that runs continuously throughout the day.
Should you decide to stroll down the boardwalk, you will see three species of mangrove trees, red, black and white. These trees protect and stabilize low-lying coastal areas and play a vital role in coastal fishery food chains. For these reasons, federal, state and local laws protect mangrove trees. Mangrove trees are very unique because they are salt tolerant.
For your convenience, there are restrooms at the beach. Additionally, a concession offers beach equipment rental, food and drinks. A handicapped beach wheelchair is available at this site. There are 182 parking spaces available. Clam Pass was voted as one of the top 20 beaches in the United States, and is close to many Naples Florida Hotels. There is an $8.00 parking fee or a Beach Parking Permit is required. The beach is open from 8:00 am to sundown. For more information call 239353.0404.
Additionally, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida offers a free nature walk Dec. - April (Mon.-Sat., excluding holidays) @ 9am along the boardwalk and the beach. No reservations, just be at the tram stop.
