Marco Island is celebrated for the Ten Thousand Islands off its coast and incredible sunset views. The town boasts an immense diversity of wildlife from dolphins to manatees to birds and offers jet ski, catamaran, and boat tours through the environment. Marco Island boasts six miles of beach and over 100 miles of waterways.

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.

This city has the charm of a small island but the sophistication of a large city. If you are looking to relax and to get away we have the best spa resorts. The beaches are pristine and the locals are always helpful.
