Marco Island

Beach resorts to fishing village vibes

Marco Island

The largest of the Ten Thousand Islands, Marco Island is located just south of Naples and easily accessible with two bridges allowing vehicle traffic on and off the island. 

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. Boating is a way of life for Marco Island residents and visitors, with many year-round and vacation homes located on the water. Bring your appetite for seafood, whether you plan to catch it on your own or at a local restaurant. For hidden gems, seek out the picturesque waterfront restaurants in the communities of Goodland and Isles of Capri. Visitors have their choice of beachfront resort hotels, several inland hotels, and many vacation rental properties and time share resorts. 

Signature events taking place in Marco Island include the Mullet Festival in Goodland (January), Wet Paint Live, (February), Marco Island Seafood Festival (March), Taste of Marco (April), Marco Island Festival of the Arts (April), the Marco Island Rocks Concert Series, a weekly Farmers Market (November-April), and a variety of colorful Christmas Island Style events (December).
