The Best Locations to Propose in Naples Florida

December 27, 2023


Want to propose in Naples Florida? Southwest Florida offers a variety of beautiful and romantic settings for a memorable marriage proposal! Here are some of the best places to consider when planning your surprise proposal:

1. The Naples Pier, Naples, Florida

If you want to propose in Naples Florida, the iconic Naples Pier offers stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico, especially during sunset. A proposal on the pier with the sun setting over the water can be incredibly romantic and make for the best engagement photo shoot! This is a very popular spot! So we would suggest advanced planning as parking will be full with locals (and visitors) wanting to see the sunset.

2. The Ritz-Carlton, Naples, Florida

Next on the list, The Ritz-Carlont Resort provides an elegant backdrop for a proposal. Consider a private beachfront dinner or a stroll through the well-manicured grounds for a romantic atmosphere. The resort offers a stunning architectural backdrop, too, if you don’t want to propose on the beach. Planning ahead is suggested for this location as well, as this part of the beach gets very full before sunset.

3. The Naples Botanical Gardens, Naples, Florida

The Naples Botanical Garden is a lush and serene setting with a variety of gardens, lakes, and walking paths. Find a quiet spot surrounded by nature for a romantic proposal. Proposing here requires advanced planning and a professional photography fee of $250. Please call the establishment or check their website for up-to-date guidelines.

4. Via Miramar Beach, Naples, Florida

In addition, Via Miramar is a very popular proposal location for a reason. Not only do you get the beautiful sandy beach as a backdrop, you can also have natural rocks in addition to the beach as a stunning view and backdrop for your engagement photos. If you want to add and extra touch to your proposal, consider hiring a luxury picnic company like the one pictured below for your proposal. We photograph proposal picnics with this company often and would love to help you with this vision!

5. Clam Pass Beach, Naples, Florida

Clam Pass Beach Park is known for its scenic boardwalk through a mangrove forest leading to the beach. Proposing at the end of the boardwalk with the sun setting over the Gulf can be truly enchanting. The beach has it’s own parking area and transportation to and from the beach due to the length of the boardwalk. Should you decided to take a stroll down the boardwalk before your proposal, make sure to plan accordingly as the walk can take anywhere from 10-15 minutes.

6. Vanderbilt Beach Access

Vanderbilt Beach is known for its pristine white sand and beautiful sunsets. Proposing on the beach as the sun dips below the horizon can create a magical moment. Vanderbilt Beach is very popular amongst both tourists and locals and the access point and parking garage can be found right next to The Ritz-Carlton Resort.

7. Downtown Naples (Third Street South)

Not sure you want to propose on the beach? Downtown Naples has the perfect backdrop for a more chic and modern setting. This historic district is filled with charming shops, restaurants, and galleries and picturesque spots that are perfect for a surprise proposal.

8. Naples Princess Cruise

Take your proposal to the water by booking a dinner cruise aboard the Naples Princess. Enjoy the beautiful views of Naples Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. While aboard, you can order food and drinks while you enjoy a beautiful and picturesque sunset cruise.

9. The Naples Grande Beach Resort

Another upscale resort, the Naples Grande Beach Resort, provides a luxurious setting for a proposal. Consider a private cabana on the beach or a romantic dinner at one of the resort’s fine dining restaurants.

10. Baker Park, Naples, Florida

Lastly, Baker Park is newer to the Collier County park system and it is absolutely stunning. This park is very scenic along the Gordon River, offering picturesque views and a tranquil atmosphere. The park is designed to showcase the natural beauty of the area, providing a charming backdrop for a proposal. You can propose with the river as a backdrop, or lush greenery and walking trails with brand new boardwalks and scenic stair cases, too!

Remember to choose a location that holds personal significance for you and your partner, and consider the preferences and interests of your significant other when planning the proposal. Whether it’s a beach, garden, or cultural venue, Naples offers a variety of romantic settings for a memorable engagement moment and memorable engagement photos!
