Coquina Sands History
Established in the 1960s, Coquina Sands sits on the northernmost part of the original town of Naples. As Naples was first settled in 1886, this area was on the road to Bonita – and though that road no longer exists (it was abandoned when Tamiami Trail was established in the 1920s), the area quickly became known for its breathtaking views and spectacular landscapes.
In 1946, the northern part of Naples was purchased by the Naples Company, which also owned The Naples Hotel and the Naples Golf and Beach Club. The Naples Beach Hotel – the result of combining the Golf and Beach Club with an apartment building – was soon a thriving tourist hotspot, drawing outside attention to the area.
The city council approved the first plat of Coquina Sands in April 1954. Engineer and surveyor W. Robert Wilson planned the development, which continued to grow.
