Great sunset views

Plenty of room to walk and and lounge with lots of beachfront. The sand is a harder packed making walking on it easy but if you have tender feet, wear flip-flops. Lots of shells.

Lovely beach, clean, minimal loud music or rowdy crowd -- great sunsets and good sea shelling....worth the rental

Large white sand beach, very well cared for and great for walking and watching beautiful sunsets. The biggest issue is finding a parking place because parking is so limited in the whole area.

I live on the island. These flies that several have mentioned are rare. Happens every few years. Has to do with a warm winter and a fairly heavy rain, which happened this month. No big deal. They'll be gone soon.

Great for beach walks on a wonderful white sand beach as you have shelling, watching sea birds, & seeing some of the best sunsets ever. Wear your sun screen!

Stayed at Hilton Resort Marco Island last weekend and had to check out a day early and move elsewhere in FL due to black flying bugs ALL over Marco! Annoying and uncomfortable to be on Hiton property or anywhere up and down the Marco Island beaches, pool, streetside, etc. JWMarriott had them also..Guests checking into resort should've been warned!

It's a beautiful beach, less crowded than east coast beaches. It's also a excellent place to go shelling. Clean white sand beach with small/medium waves (family friendly)! The closest parking is small and expensive (around 20$), but there's a pickup place close to the beach entrance.

This beach is white sandy and long, great for walks. Absolutely no amenities. Water was freazing. It would have been a lovely day if it weren't for the bugs everywhere, that covered us bothering every activity. One highlight: in the end of the day we saw dolphins!! Paddle boards and kayaks for rental. Parking costs $8 but you can't use... More
