Crayton Cove, Naples

4.6
#91 of 146 in Things to do in Naples
Home to the original boat landing where supplies were brought to the fledgling town of Naples, and also home to Naples City Dock, where one experiences the seafaring life that defined historic Naples. The first businesses located here were involved in fishing and fish processing and some of the buildings still remain.

Today, the waterside Crayton Cove neighborhood still exudes a creative and pioneering spirit. It is a village-style destination where one finds visual artists, culinary artists, enterprising merchants and innkeepers, seafaring adventurers, fishermen, and sailors. Crayton Cove's businesses cluster 'round the intersection of 8th Street South and 12th Avenue South, and on roads that lead to Naples City Dock and Naples Bay. The Cove Inn, the neighborhood's historic hotel, and the venerable Dock Restaurant, are both located directly on the shore of Naples Bay and serve as landmarks for those approaching Crayton Cove by water.
