A Clear Reflection of Quality
The city of Naples in conjunc-

Ranking the sun-drenched mile long; it twists and turns in
beaches of Florida is not an easy order to follow the natural con-
exercise, however, and like the tours of the topography. Vaca-

Because of their southern lo-

One of the most tranquil
beach sites off Key Bis-
cayne near the Sonesta
Hotel — a five mile
stretch of tranquil,
sandy repose —
was denied to
almost a year as a
result of the dev-

da's last hurricane
and it took almost a
year to restore the
beach's serene elegance.
None of the liabilities as-
sociate with beaches apply
to what most people de-
scribe as the num-
ber one site in
Florida, Marco Is-
land. Located on the
southernmost tip of the
Gulf Coast, the Marco Island
seafront is new enough not to cation on the tip of Florida, the

the other impediments during es provide views of sunsets that
the past two decades since it was are unrivaled — which explains
why tourists like to flock there at

Atlantic beaches in Florida do

particular charm. One, in Stuart,

The Naples beaches have a dis- about 40 miles north of Palm
tinct feature. In some areas, near Beach, offers an unhurried vista
the famous Registry Resort, for on a stretch of shoreline that
example, the beach is at a one and seems to go on forever. The Stu-

way and the distance between the those on the Gulf coast (the sand
