One of Southern Californias most Coveted Luxury Communities

Originally, the land that is Belmont Shore and Naples was a vast expanse of Pacific Ocean wetlands. Later it became a part of historic Rancho Los Alamitos. In the early 1920s, Rancho Los Alamitos was subdivided to form what would become Long Beach. Even though much of Belmont Shore and Naples was still underwater a few forward thinking developers bought it and began construction of one of Southern Californias most coveted luxury communities, creating a picture perfect coastline. More than 2 million cubic yards of sand and mud were dredged from Alamitos Bay to elevate the land. The Bay was widened and deepened and channels created. Sand imported from Mexico and the Pacific Northwest created idyllic lagoons along the postcard perfect coastline.

A Charming Italian Styled Community

Originally, the entire area was intended to be a charming Italian styled community with luxury homes and red tiled roofs on picturesque canals. Gondoliers, a promenade with a large fountain and plenty of beachfront were part of the plan! Due to the high cost and complex task, only Naples Island met that goal. The first residential lots here were sold for less than $2,000.

Bold Contemporary to Spanish Revival

Gondolas - Naples Island - Long Beach CaliforniaCruise Naples in a gondola or stroll the walkways by foot or bicycle. Youll see elegant Mediterranean style and stately New England style shingle homes, condominiums and more. Dont miss the outstanding collection of period revival commercial buildings along Second Street in Belmont Shore.

Hunting for waterfront condominium? Step out of your Marina Pacifica home and into the warm Alamitos Bay sand. For awe-inspiring sunsets, take an evening stroll down to the beach just blocks away from your lovely Belmont Shore home. From bold contemporary to Spanish Revival, there is a home style here to suit every preference!
