Is Pelican Bay A Safe Place To Live?

Perusing online I noticed lots of discrepancies from data gathering websites regarding crime statistics in Pelican Bay Naples, Florida. I’m here to set the record straight not only as a Pelican Bay REALTOR but also as a Pelican Bay resident who has lived here since 2006. I can’t recall a time when I thought my safety was in danger in Pelican Bay.

Many people question if Pelican Bay in Naples is gated. The entire development of Pelican Bay is NOT gated but there are 40 communities within Pelican Bay that are gated. Non-gated communities that don’t offer a gated entry may also have some level of secured entrance. The gated subdivisions within Pelican Bay may be manned 24 hours per day. Some gated communities have a sensor or offer code accessibility. If you have specific requirements regarding the level of security you desire, contact Shannon today to get assistance. 

What Are The Crime Rates in Pelican Bay?

Some data-driven websites like to group Pelican Bay into the 34108 area code to describe crime rates in Pelican Bay. That would be similar to grouping Beverly Hills with Los Angeles or Manhattan with Brooklyn statistics. Pelican Bay may share the same area code with communities outside of the development but those communities are not the same.

What is the Most Common Crime in Pelican Bay?

The most common crime in Pelican Bay is theft. Many of our residents and visitors feel a massive sense of security and as a result, lots of people act carelessly with their possessions. Every so often residents receives notices regarding “a recent increase in car break-ins.” This is largely due to people leaving valuables in plain sight. Some folks are robbed because they don’t lock their car doors. One lady lost her entire jewelry collection because she left it in her car overnight. The greatest advice I can offer is to exercise some common sense.
Over the years we’ve heard numerous stories of how people were robbed after they left their unlocked homes and went to dinner only to come back to find themselves a victim.
A residence or car is not the only place where residents and visitors can fall victim. Please carry your valuables with you while you’re on the beach. While private access to our Pelican Bay Beach Clubs is available, there are no private beaches in the State of Florida. People can and do walk all the way from the Vanderbilt Beach public access point down to the tip of Clam Pass. Unattended designer bags, expensive cameras, and phones are easy to pick up. If you’re headed for the bar or a stroll, take it with you or leave it at home.
