One of the Ten Thousand Islands, Marco Island makes up the southern tip of the Paradise Coast.
The island is home to some of the world's most beautiful beaches and offers access to both the Gulf of Mexico and the mangrove-lined estuaries of the Ten Thousand Islands. More than just another pretty beach, Marco Island's mood shifts from sophisticated resort area to historic nautical community and funky fishing village. Bring your appetite for seafood, whether you plan to catch it on your own or at a local restaurant. For a hidden gem, seek out the picturesque waterfront restaurants in the nearby community of Isles of Capri.
Signature events taking place in Marco Island include the Marco Island Seafood Festival, Marco Island Paddle Challenge and Goodland Holiday Bazaar.
