Welcome to The Moorings / Coquina Sands
Prestigious neighborhoods nestled along the beach
Just north of Downtown Naples, Coquina Sands and The Moorings are a tight-knit pair of beachfront communities. Their lush, winding streets give way to pristine beaches that are never packed. The outdoors beckons residents with delightful weather and all manner of things to do while enjoying the sun.
Coquina Sands is named after the broken shells that were originally used to make the roads. It was first envisioned as a place where vacationers could come and enjoy the mild winter weather, and it exceeded expectations as it was developed. Now it is more than just a vacation home - it’s a place where residents enjoy friendly neighbors and white sands all year round.
Both neighborhoods offer a delightful variety of residences, from expansive single-family homes to luxury condos. The waterfront properties are a huge draw, but there are beautiful homes as you journey farther from the beach as well. No matter where you buy, there is a beach and a country club waiting for you just around the corner.
What to Love
- Abundant golf courses nearby
- Pristine beaches
- Centrally located to the rest of Naples
- Peaceful and family-friendly
Mooring and Coquina Sands are distinguished communities that lack the bustling atmosphere of their southern neighbors. There is a tranquil, spacious feeling in the area, and not just because the neighborhoods are bordered by beaches on one side and numerous country clubs on the other. Many families find their way here for the tight-knit community and great school districts.
Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
Residents have access to the vibrant shopping of Downtown Naples and the quaint Village at Venetian Bay to the north, but these well-established neighborhoods are full of delicious fare and easily accessible shopping close to home.
USS Nemo has unique fine dining with award-winning service and delicious seafood. Known for having prime steak and meat that is a cut above, Jimmy P’s Charred is an unpretentious and simply delicious dining experience. If you’re looking for a casual eatery full of healthy fare, Lake Park Diner is serving their organic delicacies to the neighborhood.
The Coastland Center shopping mall is full of well-known stores like Macy’s, American Eagle, and Express. There are restaurants tucked in among the stores, making it easy to transition from a shopping spree to a fun dinner out.
Things to Do
Coquina Sands and Moorings are full of outdoor activities. Whether you want to take a stroll, play a round of golf, or go for a bike ride, you can do that here. Though these neighborhoods tend to be on the quieter side, there are still some incredible events here as well.
Naples Zoo has been a dynamic part of Naples for over 100 years. It hosts community events and fundraiser galas, like the Naples Zoo Gala, and is a wonderful place for the community to come and learn about nature and the animals that dwell there.
