Anyone looking for Naples real estate in Southwest Florida will be impressed by the easy going, laid back atmosphere of Pelican Bay community. It’s the perfect environment to relax and enjoy long sunny days in a welcoming, homely environment. Situated among acres of lush mangrove preserves, Pelican Bay boasts three miles of gorgeous sandy beaches, for the exclusive use of residents. Most homes are within easy walking distance of the beach, but if you want to take it easy, Pelican Bay’s unique tram system will safely carry you and your guests through the community’s 43 acres of parks and recreational land, enjoying trips on the boardwalk through the mangroves to the glistening Gulf of Mexico surf.
In accordance to Pelican Bay’s keen environmental ethos, the trams are all electrically or solar powered. Pelican Bay has kept the protection of the environment close to its heart since its beginnings in 1972. Rather than destroying the 570 acres of mangroves, developers decided instead to create a community in harmony with its surroundings, realizing that a high-density community would not be good for residents or for the environment. With the ethos of preservation, conservation and development in mind, Pelican Bay was born.
The beach really is a jewel in Pelican Bay’s crown. As you can only reach it by tram or by foot, it has a secret hideaway feel, and you’re sure to feel like a king or queen enjoying your own private kingdom. Beach attendants are on hand to provide loungers, umbrellas and cabanas, and to keep the beach in tip-top order. A day spent walking on the sandy shore, relaxing with a book on your sun lounger or collecting shells is in itself a day well spent.
For the more active though, Pelican Bay also has sea kayaks and sailing boats for residents to use, as well as volleyball on the south beach. Pelican Bay’s sports facilities do not disappoint, with a thriving tennis club and a fantastically challenging golf course. The tennis club offers top class instruction, pro shops, and eighteen lit tru hard courts.
There is a full competition schedule, and special events. To keep yourself at optimum health, enjoy the facilities of the fitness center, or take an exercise class at three locations around the community. The community Center at Pelican Bay is a great place to meet up with friends and neighbors and take part in some life enriching activities. Some of the many different clubs and societies held here include the Photo Guild, Bridge Club, and painting classes.
To relax, there is a choice of restaurants and cafes all around the community where you can enjoy top class meals before taking the tram home. As for properties, you will be spoilt for choice.
