“Florida’s Paradise Coast”
Located on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico, Marco Island is the largest of Florida’s Ten Thousand Islands. A tropical climate, white sand beaches, water sports, fishing, wildlife and laid back lifestyle are a few of the many reasons that Marco Island is the perfect vacation destination.
There are two public beaches on the Island, Tigertail Beach is the best choice for children with small surf, a lagoon and a large sandy beach. South Marco Beach is the perfect beach for shelling and watching dolphins swimming in the warm waters. There is so much to discover at the Rookery Bay National Estuarine, 110,000 acres of pristine mangrove forest, uplands and protected water bursting with birds and wildlife. For an original fishing experience, visit Goodland village, a laid-back authentic fishing village buzzing with fisherman, artists and great live music. When your day is coming to an end, enjoy a magnificent Florida sunset and then visit Marco Walk Plaza, an open air plaza of fine restaurants and small boutiques.
Travel inland a little and you can explore many of the unspoiled parks by land, water or air. Experience the natural beauty and wildlife of the Everglades at Everglades National Park, a 1.5 million acre ecosystem featuring airboat rides and safaris. The Everglades are waiting to be explored by kayak or paddle board. Collier Seminole State Park is located within the Everglades. The “Amazon of North America”, Fakahatchee Strand Preserve is a haven for wildlife and endangered tropical plants.
Just a short drive away, the heart of Naples lies at 5th Avenue South and offers world class shopping, dining and entertainment, day and night. Explore the waterways of Naples at Tin City. In the heart of the Waterfront District, Tin City offers cruises, deep sea fishing and an excellent Old Florida feel dining and shopping experience.
