Marco Island is the largest and only developed island in South West Florida’s Ten Thousand Islands, with rentals scattered throughout historic Old Marco, the fishing village of Goodland, and other waterside communities.
Bordered by the Gulf of Mexico, the Big Marco River, and Barfield, Caxambas, and Collier Bays, and crisscrossed by canals, Marco Island is a boater’s paradise. The white sand beaches and warm turquoise waters appeal to swimmers, sunbathers, beachcombers, and water sport enthusiasts. Visitors to nearby Collier-Seminole State Park, home to one of the largest mangrove swamps in the world, and the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park, “the Amazon of North America,” have the opportunity to explore the parks in many ways, including hiking, bicycling, canoeing, kayaking, angling for saltwater and freshwater fish, and bird and wildlife viewing. Marco Island is also situated just west of Everglades National Park.
Marco Island offers a vast array of natural and outdoors attractions, as well as a variety of facilities and rental accommodation options, and is less than a thirty minutes’ drive from Naples.+ More
