Tigertail Beach Park Photo

Located on Marco Island, Tigertail Beach offers the public everything from natural resources to beachside amenities that make your visit a rewarding one. Tigertail Beach offers a bath house, five boardwalks leading from the mangrove lined parking area to the white, sandy beach. As you are standing on the beach looking over the Gulf of Mexico, you will see sand Dollar Island. This area is a nesting area for many birds, some that are threatened species. The Least Terns and Black Skimmers nest here in the spring along with various species of Sandpipers. The tidal bay between Tigertail Beach and Sand Dollar Island is generally an area where a variety of birds feed. We see Herons, Egrets, ibis and Many kinds of Terns, Sandpipers, plovers and Gulls. You may even see birds of prey such as the Osprey, gliding overhead.

A trip to Tigertail is not complete without a stroll along the beach for shells and other beach items. Collection of live shells is not permitted within county parks, but should you walk the shorelines, you will find a variety of shells and maybe even a sand dollar.

For your convenience, there are restrooms at the beach. In addition, a concession offers beach equipment rentals, food, and drinks. A handicapped beach wheelchair is available at this site. There are 226 regular parking spaces and 6 handicap parking spaces. Should you have comments, concerns or any questions, please contact a park ranger.

$8.00 Parking Fee payable to the Master Meter, or Beach Parking Permit required. The Beach is open from sunrise to sundown.
