Magical. Mystical. Marco Island.
Florida's tropical paradise. Color splashed sunsets
mirrored on sparkling Gulf waters. An intimate setting
surrounded by sun-washed white beaches. This tiny island
suspended off the southern-most tip of Florida awaits
your arrival. The allure is tropical. The attitude
is easy-paced casual. And, time to explore the stunning
beauty of the island and the natural inhabitants is
your greatest luxury.
Frolicking dolphins welcome you to this sun-kissed sanctuary with more than 200 species of birds, including the American bald eagle, and the endangered West Indian manatee. Warm sunshine, brilliant emerald waters and endless island adventures abound. Begin with a dip in the Gulf. Soak in the sun on ivory shores. Cast into some of the world's finest fishing.
Tour the wild wetlands of the Florida Everglades. Canoe along uninhabited islands. Or, go shelling to fill buckets full of flawless keepsakes from the beach. Land lovers explore by bike or trolley and discover Marco Island's past as a secluded hideaway for Indians, pirates and famous explorers.
The Marco Island Chamber of Commerce hopes your stay--short or long--is memorable. Enjoy our crescent beach and island charm. Enjoy the local color at one of the many outdoor "chickee bars" scattered around the island. Plan a fishing trip with one of our seasoned guides, then take your catch to one of the fine restaurants and they will prepare it for you...Marco Island Style.
