Royal Harbor

Welcome to Royal Harbor

Boat from your backyard and reach 5th Avenue in minutes. 


Just minutes from downtown Naples and the famous 5th Avenue, Royal Harbor is perfect for those who like to get out on the water anytime from their own backyard. This community dates to 1962 and is prized for the gorgeous views of the bay and the easy access to the Gulf of Mexico. There are only about 400 homes in this upscale waterfront community. With its neighborhood motto of being the Friendliest Community in Naples, it’s a bit of a hidden gem with easy access to nearby beaches, local events, superb dining, and shopping, all a short walk, bike, or golf cart ride away.

Those who want to have gorgeous bay views, or their boat tied up in the backyard, always ready for a quick ride out the Gulf, will consider Royal Harbor the perfect neighborhood. It blends all the best things about Florida’s coastal living with convenience and privacy. Locals love that they can head just across the bay to the great shopping and dining on 5th and 3rd Avenues, while they can also hit the links at the nearby Windstar. Some favorite gathering places include Nosh on Naples Bay, Southern Kitchen & Raw Bar, The Boathouse on Naples Bay, and K-Rico Mexican Grill. Royal Harbor residents attend fun community events, like the annual Christmas Boat Parade.

The lifestyle in Royal Harbor is exactly what those drawn to southern Florida are looking for; it’s laid back and relaxed. If you are looking for a place where you feel you have privacy and tranquility, can take the boat out anytime, take a short drive to beautiful beaches, or just watch the gorgeous sunset over the Florida Gulf Coast from the comfort of your porch, Royal Harbor is perfect for you. The neighborhood also has a strong community identity and is welcoming and friendly.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Royal Harbor has more than its fair share of excellent waterfront dining as a bayside community. Nosh on Naples Bay is one of the finest restaurants in the area. It uses only the freshest local ingredients and prides itself on delivering small plates with the globe’s best cuisine in an upscale, modern dining experience. The Southern Kitchen & Raw Bar serves comfort food and local favorites. The Boathouse on Naples Bay serves a little bit of everything, from fresh seafood to old-world pasta, in an elegant setting.

Locals enjoy K-Rico Mexican Grill for the terrific Baja California-inspired Mexican cuisine. They also have a variety of beers on tap and terrific craft cocktails, although patrons swear by the classic margarita.

Royal Harbor residents appreciate the ability to reach the fantastic shopping downtown on 5th Avenue and 3rd Avenue in just minutes, with opportunities at the 5th Avenue Shopping Mall and plenty of luxury brand shops. However, the locally-owned shops in Tin City are also popular.

Things to Do

The favorite pastime of Royal Harbor residents is taking to the water. Most of the homes in Royal Harbor are along the waterfront, where they have quick and easy access to the Gulf to enjoy fishing, sailing, or simply cruising.

The downtown Naples beachfront has a terrific pier and is a great place to stick your feet in the sand. Vanderbilt Beach and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park are pristine beaches nearby. Going on a cruise for dolphin watching is also loads of fun.

For those looking to take a break from the water and hit the links, the Windstar on Naples Bay has one of the finest and most exclusive courses around.

The Royal Harbor Association holds regular community events — the most popular being the annual Christmas Boat Parade. Residents get front row seats to this display on the bay.
