Pelican Bay is among the most prestigious of master-planned communities in Naples, and truly, all of Southwest Florida for that matter. Homes in Pelican Bay come in the form of expansive estates, luxury condos in high rises overlooking the Gulf and stellar single-family homes.
Complementing the Community
This central area of Naples was originally referred to as Clam Bay. In 1972, County Namesake Barron Collier purchased more than 2,300 acres
and atypical of conventional development processes of that era, the efforts here focused on conservation and preservation. Renamed Pelican Bay in 1974, almost 600 acres of coastal mangrove forests would be left intact and ultimately designated as protected natural resource areas. Pelican Bay remains one of the most naturally beautiful coastal communities in America. Then again, there’s plenty of amenities that add to the allure.
Residents of Pelican Bay have a wide range of recreational options, including tennis, sailing & kayaking, croquet. There’s a fitness center and full service spa, and a convenient tram system to help residents get from here to there, such as the three gorgeous beaches along the Gulf and several popular community restaurants. There’s more than 40 acres dedicated to parks and recreation areas.
Membership in The Pelican Bay Golf Club offers access to one of the greatest golf courses in America. Designed by renowned Golf Architect Arthur Hills, the course at Pelican Bay is actually featured on the cover of his book “The Works of Art: Golf Course Designs by Arthur Hills.” The clubhouse at Pelican Bay also caters to a variety of community events and activities. Regardless of what you’re interests may be, be it art, bridge, dancing, photography or other, chances are you’ll find a club comprised by like-minded members within Pelican Bay.
This community is perfectly positioned in the heart of Naples. Residents are only minutes away from outstanding shopping and dining destinations such as Waterside Shoppes, Mercato and the Village on Venetian Bay, to name just a few of the very appealing commercial enclaves.
Entertainment options include an array of art galleries and venues such as Artis-Naples, a host of stage plays and concerts by legendary recording artists.
Families with growing children will appreciate the proximity to destinations like The Zoo and Golisano Children’s Museum. What’s more, schools, churches and healthcare services are all located close to the community.
