A tempting twist of tropical passions, sun-splashed excitement and Island charm, Marco Island, Florida, is suspended off the southern most tip of Florida's Gulf Coast and is the largest inhabited isle of the Ten Thousand Islands. Four miles wide by six miles long, Marco Island is home to about 14,000 year-round residents. Marco Island has been described as Magical, Mystical and Alluring. The attraction is tropical sun-washed white beaches and a casual easy paced life style. Sunshine, frolicking dolphins, and all of the water and sun sports that go with the beaches are available for your pleasure.

With three-and-one-half miles of sweeping, pearlescent sands and shimmering turquoise-flecked waters, Marco Island is ideal for a romantic, family or sporting getaway. Inland is a maze of waterways, mangroves and sawgrass that provides sanctuary for more than 200 exotic and domestic species of birds.

During the months of January through March however, the island population swells to well over 30,000 due to the annual influx of vacationers and winter residents, filling up the large inventory of hotel rooms, condos, villas and apartments. No wonder, with our dependable sunshine and winter afternoon temperatures usually in the 70's and 80's. Gulf water temperatures range from the low 60's in the winter to the high 80's in the summer and fall

For the prospective visitor who is planning to do some fishing and/or boating, some of your earliest contacts should be with our many marinas, bait shops and tackle shops. We are blessed with many shops; some full-service and some highly specialized in their offerings. Many are located around the Marco Island and many others are located toward Naples or south in Port of the Islands, Everglades City and Chokoloskee.
