“Lovely but know what you're getting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

This beach worked out well for us but I do caution you to research it. To get to the actual gulf coast beach you need to hike though the lagoon and over a spit of land which might be an issue for some who don't like to squish through the water which can be shallow to deep (?3 ft) depending upon the tide or those with small children or carrying alot of stuff. The park/boardwalk has a cafe, bathrooms, playground, some educational information. The lagoon side has great watertoys and soccer area. The kids loved meeting people everyday, playing with them, renting paddleboards, watertrikes and more to use in the protected area. Hiking across to the actual beach area we did several times to swim and collect some amazing shells. Didn't really see people swimming in the lagoon since the bottom is kind of squishy. Get an aerial view of Tigertail Beach to see what I mean. It was nice for us, we could walk from the rental house and the 8/10 year olds had many activities to choose from.

“Private piece of paradise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2012

Visiting Tigertail Beach is a must-see spot when in Naples or Marco Island. The beach is clean and convenient with the cafe and restrooms. You can rent cabanas, chairs, paddle boats, etc and the staff are all super friendly, especially Steve and Tony. The awesome surprise awaits you when you wade across the tidal pool to the absolute breathtaking beach. This time if year it is as if you have the place to yourself - awesome!!
