Just back from my 3rd vacation in Marco Island and it continues to get better and better! The weather, people, beaches and restaurants are all top notch! We found the island is changing and much younger and vibrant feel to it. We love south marco beach, tiger tail beach and walking The Esplanade! Cannot wait to go back next year!!... More

South Marco Beach is a nice beach- clean and well kept, but with no amenities/facilities which means everything that you need/want must be brought to the beach (chairs, umbrellas, refreshments, etc...). Parking is across the street and limited, costing $8 (a few people had issues trying to use their credit card and change is not provided so bring $8 with... More

Take a walk to the end where the rocks are, it is so beautiful! A piece of hidden paradise that you won't want to miss. Bring your camera as you will see Dolphins swimming right in front of you, and a bag for shelling. So pretty!

After a disappointing visit to TigerTail Beach (due to the long, long walk to get there)...we decided to try South Marco Beach and definitely had a much better experience.

We scouted the Marco beaches for a spot to have a simple wedding ceremony and chose South Marco. This beach is beautiful, great for shelling and swimming. The water was clean, clear and warm. The sunsets are amazing, visit this beach and you won't be disappointed.
