Marco Island beaches offer a fine relaxing combination of nice white beaches and quiet ocean with little to no waves. Accomodations are mostly condo rentals plus few hotels like Hilton and Marco Island Beach resort. Condos are better choice -you have privacy, full kitchen, private access to the beach, pools and gated complex, free beach equipment, washer/dryer etc. There are... More

Great beach, clear shallow water, can be hanged out all day... great for kids as there is not much of waves in this beach...you can play all day and relax here! Parking is $8 but if you stay in a beach front property its much easier if you have free parking there.

This is a top class location. The beach is exceptionally well organised on a daily basis with probably 300 plus sun umbrellas and loungers being laid out and removed every day. A military like operation well worth seeing. Lots of beach based activities such as jet skis, catamaran sailing, kayaks and guided tours are all pre books le from the... More

Love this beach. The water is always calm. Nice and clear, good for snorkeling. Sheepshead fish swim right up to you. Lots of seashells. Warm tide pools form along the shore, which make great exploring spots for both young and old. You'll find live shells and some small fish wandering in an out of them.

Construction, crowded and grouchy. Describes my experience on Marco Island. It may have been voted best beach in 2013 but it was awful in 2015 with the only bridge into town under construction and it being very crowded tempers were high. I wouldn't return. Very very crowded January February and March. Not fun!!

We stayed at Surf Club which has beautifully manicured grounds and direct walkway to the beach. The sand is white and powdery. There is a wonderful gentle breeze that keeps it from feeling too hot. The water is beautiful. We spotted a dolphin this morning. Ahhhh.

You can rent a kayak, wave runner or chairs/umbrella whatever you like to sit back, take a deep and relax on or at the beach.. Beautiful weather and water..the Best of both worlds!

Beautiful beach located in town, no nature or beautiful nature surroundings. Still the dolphins, pelicans and a wide variety if fish can be seen.

Not too crowed, great easy access to local food, tons of shells to find, you can see dolphins all the time, and the kids had a blast building sand castles

Broad beach, with beautiful water. Tidal changes every 6 hours so easy surf. Great just to sit and enjoy the sun. Fun to watch the Pelicans and other sea birds. Easy walk to the beach via a tree lined board walk.
