Marco Island

Beautiful and friendly

Just minutes from Naples, Marco Island offers a tropical island escape for lovers, eco-tourists and boaters alike. Marco, the largest of the Ten Thousand Islands, welcomes visitors to its four-mile, crescent-shaped beach, and grants easy access to the unspoiled Everglades.

There's something for everyone on Marco Island - the warm Gulf climate provides a languishing escape for honeymooners and couples seeking a breathtaking Florida beach wedding.

Eco-tourists will be in awe of Marco's natural wonders - shell-lined shores, playful dolphins, mangrove islands and sandbars. Snowbirds will love the sleepy, swanky ambiance.
