ICP Entry Sign 200The Isles of Collier Preserve is an award-winning master-planned community inspired by nature, informed by historic references to the classic southern coastal architecture of Old Naples, and designed to accommodate an active lifestyle that is connected to nature. With miles of walking trails, resort-style pool, tennis and pickleball courts, state-of-the-art fitness center, kayak launch and much more, The Isles of Collier Preserve offers something for everyone looking for fun in the Florida sun!

Just four miles east of downtown Naples and bordered by Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Naples Botanical Garden and Dollar Bay, more than 1,000 acres of the community’s 2,400 acres are dedicated to the natural habitat and surrounding nature preserves. Thus, it is no surprise that the Isles' developer, Minto, has become the inaugural Corporate Member to the Friends of Rookery Bay.
