Corkscrew Swamp, Naples

4.6
#1 of 58 in Wildlife in Naples
was created to protect two species of cypress trees that were at risk of being wiped out in the 1940s and 50s. Today it is a National Audubon Society sanctuary. Wet prairie, pond and bald cypress, and marshlands attract regional reptiles and birds. Keep your eyes open for cottonmouth snakes and alligators that prowl the shallow waters. Stroll along the boardwalk, added in 1955, to view the varied ecosystem.

  • Wonderful, nice 2.5 mile quiet walk on a very nice boardwalk. The Everglades are a Florida treasure nice see up close , without disturbing the amazing Wildlife. Alligators, owls, snakes, raccoons, otters, many other birds and critters. We enjoyed a three hour exploration.
  • Absolute peace!! A must visit if you visit Naples. The boardwalk makes it so hassle free to walk and at the same time enjoy nature. They also have places to sit at regular intervals so if you feel exhausted there is place to rest and relax!
