It's a small barrier island located in Southwest Florida on the Gulf of Mexico. It has some of the world’s best beaches, world-class golf courses, multiple dining options and fresh, local seafood.
Though it's a great place to be enjoyed year-round, the best time to visit Marco is during the months of March to May. Temperatures range in the mid-80s, and you’ll enjoy moderate crowds and fair prices.
It's incredibly unique in that it is home to 2 very different swimming areas (the ocean and a lagoon), a bird-watching tower, tidal pools, and paddle boat, kayak, stand-up paddleboard, and beach bike rentals by the hour.
Home to 8-miles of untouched white sand, this island beach is only accessible by boat, and it is the only pet-friendly beach in the area.
South Marco Beach is ideal for families as it is clean and has shallow water. In addition, the firmer sand near the water makes it ideal for a walk, jog, or bike ride.
This main part of Tigertail Beach across from the lagoon is Sand Dollar Island, otherwise known as Sand Dollar Spit. The water is a beautiful turquoise color and there are both seashells and sand dollars.
Down on the southernmost tip of Marco Island lies the scenic Cape Romano, which is only accessible by boat. Visitors can walk from one sandbar to another while swimming, wading, and enjoying the natural beauty.
