After a long bike ride to the beach to collect shells we headed back to the main drag of 5th Avenue South for some toasted coconut ice cream and looked down my feet. After all that walking in the sand I needed a pedicure stat!
5th Ave Nail Spa
535 Park Street, Just off 5th Ave South
This teeny Nail Spa is fully equipped with hydro foot tubs and massaging leather chairs. As soon as I slipped into mine and took off my flip flops, plunging them into warm, lavender-scented bubbles I heard an angel speak…well maybe it was my nail tech…asking if I’d like a glass of chilled Savingnon Blanc. YES! She disappeared for a moment and returned with my glass, and started working her magic on my toes. Nothing fancy, just a really great pedicure and foot massage…leaving my toes sparkling. This was definitely just what was needed after taking those beach cruisers for a 8-mile excursion.
Need full body R&R? Then spend some time at the Spa at The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club.
On the West side of Gulf Shore Blvd, This hotel stretches out on the white sand beach and on the East side, rests on a beautiful bright green golf course. We came here two evenings in a row to watch the sunset and listen to live music, and are planning to come back to experience their spa. Traditional European therapies like mud wraps, aromatherapy massage and ampule-infused facials abound in this spa in naples florida. Keeping their South Florida location in mind, the spa also offers total body bronzing and personal training sessions. Just want to relax for the day and take advantage of their facilities? No problem! Forty dollars will get you a fluffy robe, slippers, and a free hall pass to their fitness rooms, yoga classes, sauna, steam room, pool, jacuzzi and spa amenities (hotel guests only pay $25.)
Next stop on the list? We are driving up through beautiful Sanibel to Captiva Island to visit ‘Tween Waters Inn and stakeout their new Spa!
