Populated sparsely with high-rise buildings, Marco Island is the largest barrier island within Florida’s Ten Thousand Islands. Not more than 30 minutes from downtown Naples, Marco Island holidays offer visitors an up and coming cosmopolitan city with plenty of pristine beaches and preserved natural areas to explore. There are endless things to see and do on your holidays to Marco Island, but where to start?
Magical, alluring, mystical – is how Marco Island is often described. On your holidays to Marco Island, soak up the beauty of The Paradise Coast on postcard-worthy sands, wander historic Old Naples, spot fascinating wildlife at the Everglades National Park, shop at famous Tin City and beyond – this spectacular destination will exceed all expectations.
Marco Island holidays boast an equal measure of nature, culture, history and cosmopolitan, so visitors really do have the best of both worlds when it comes to popular things to tick off the list. The city’s tropical weather is present throughout the year, however, rainfall (wet season) is at its highest during June – October, so make sure you plan your holidays to Marco Island during November – May (dry season). This relaxed city suits families, friends and couples alike. A beautiful winter retreat too, it's worth exploring the natural retreats here including Briggs Nature Centre, Winterberry Park Isles of Capri Marina and Calusa Park. Likewise, you can head over to the Marco Island Historical Museum, Mackle Park and Cape Romano. Like to be beside (or in) the sea? Spend your holidays to Marco Island stand-up paddleboarding, on fishing charters & tours, dolphin spotting, whale watching, parasailing, paragliding, river rafting and water & jet-skiing and more – adrenaline seekers will be in their element here.
