Float, Paddle, Sail or Swim: Making the Most of Naples' Beaches


UPDATE: DREAM DESTINATION CONFERENCE 2023 HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL OCTOBER 22ND – 26TH, 2023.

Last year, Hurricane Ian damaged most of Florida and forced the Ritz-Carlton in Naples to undergo renovations. Unfortunately, the exotic places where we host our Dream Destination Conference can sometimes experience these types of powerful weather events. Due to recent news that the resort will not be ready by May, FFS has made the decision to postpone DDC23 until October 22nd

– 26th, 2023.


The Paradise Coast is lined with some of the world’s finest sand, glimmering white as diamonds in the magic of a summer’s sunset, so it is no question that the beachside delights of the Ritz-Carlton in Naples are a major part of the resort’s charm.


The best of the best is in store for DDC23 qualifiers, with countless opportunities for guests to set sail, hang ten or simply cool off in a tropical breeze. Here are just a few of the water and beach activities you can choose from during your stay in the height of luxury:


The Beach


Enjoy a unique slice of paradise with private boardwalks that wind through lush mangroves and palms before opening onto three miles of pristine white beach facing the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Towel service begins at 8 a.m. daily — from there, you can spend every sunlit hour relaxing with beach chairs, umbrellas and personal cabanas.

The Waves


If the rush of adrenaline calls to you, you can spend your afternoons riding the waves with a variety of fun and exciting water sports. Parasail over the glittering Gulf, paddleboard the horizon beyond the tide, climb aboard a waverunner for a high-speed adventure or take a leisurely kayaking journey to explore Florida’s natural beauty. There’s even local backwater and offshore fishing, as well as a day of sailing the Gulf.


The Pool


For those who would rather not walk to the beach, frozen cocktails and saltwater pools await those who stay resort-side. Bask in the warm sun next to a free-form pool, feel the breeze from a cabana with a personal concierge or relax on a plush lounge chair surrounded by seasonal fruit. Check with the pool concierge for towels and umbrellas starting at 8 a.m. each day.

The Perfect Beach Awaits at DDC23


All that and more is in store for qualifiers of Dream Destination 2023. Even without the incredible beach and water activities, you still experience luxury without limits at one of the greatest resorts the world has to offer, on one of the most beautiful coastlines you can ever experience.
