turtle nest on naples beach

Sea turtle nesting season on Naples beaches is beginning with the advent of spring this month.  From March through October, thousands of sea turtles will arrive from the Gulf of Mexico onto the beaches of Southwest Florida (Atlantic and Gulf beaches) to lay their eggs.  Sea turtles will crawl onto the beach at night and dig a large hole in the sand to lay dozens of eggs, usually 2-3 nests per season.  Eggs begin to hatch after approximately 60 days.  Within the city and county beaches, hundreds of nests are laid each year.
