The city of Marco Island is located in Collier County, a brief drive from the city of Naples. It is well known for its high quality of life, natural resources, casual atmosphere, and friendly people. Locals boast of luxurious resorts and favorite eateries like CJs on the Bay and Tiki Bar. Visitors enjoy crossing the Jolley Bridge and indulging in fishing, kayaking, or sailing.

Must-sees at Marco Island include the Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Preserve. There’s no shortage of outdoor options with Caxambas Park, Marco River, Tigertail Beach, and Resident’s Beach.

This Gulf coast area features plenty of water recreation and great local seafood right on the beach. The McNavigators took advantage of a dinner cruise and were entertained by fire dancers. Marco Island is perfect for a fun and adventurous beach trip.

Great place to live and enjoy the gulf waters year round

Marco Marriott is by far the BEST Marriott I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in many. There isn't a need to ever leave the resort if you didn't want to! The beach is breathtaking both during the day and at sunset. I look forward to staying there every year!
