“Beautiful and tranquil beach...”
Review of Tigertail Beach

Attraction details
Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

Our family visits Marco Island annually and we always enjoy our day at Tigertail Beach. Tony is helpful, cheerful, and simply charming! We've always been able to enjoy the cabanas, water trikes, or paddle boats after a lazy afternoon shelling and sunning. Today was overcast and raining, but Tony stayed late in the afternoon while we enjoyed kayaking over to Hideaway Beach. If you're looking for a very special spot, visit Tony at Tigertail Beach and don't forget binoculars to appreciate all the birds and a shelling bag to hold your treasures!

Pros:
playground was great for younger and older kids
plenty of places to sit and rinse your feet
decent restrooms off the parking lot
easy to find

cons:
inner coast line/sand bar was smelly like a dirty lake
had to wade through 2-3 foot water with 2 small babies and all our stuff to get to the beach (grandma was NOT happy)

The walk to Tiger Tail is quite a hike. We opted to not forward the lagoon. When we arrived someone could have told us the beach was around the corner, as we did not know. Once you get around the corner. The view is breathtaking and the beach is absolutely beautiful. The most beautiful beach in the Naples/Marco area. I just wish they could come up with a bridge to drop you on the beach rather than having to hike through the sand. It is such a far walk with a three year old, and the bathrooms are worthless when they are so far away. We spent more time in the water here than any of the other beaches we went to. Spent more time at Lowdermilk in Naples because the snack bar and bathroom were more convenient. But, if I could only go to one beach again, it would be Tiger Tail

My husband and I love visiting this lovely beach when in Marco, and the highlight is the cafe run by Tony. He is a Londoner who has lived in Marco for many years, and he is helpful and friendly. They serve excellent fish sandwiches and other interesting food, ice -creams and drinks,including English tea, freshly prepared. There is a patio with umbrellas too, always a delight.

There are swings for the kiddies, and all sorts of beach equipment.

Reading these reviews is frustrating and sad. The people in the 'recreation' area of the park obviously don't know its a five minute walk from the Rental Hut to the outer bank. There's 79 Acres out there !!!!!!!!!! This beautifully maintained park has Bathrooms , a playground , water sport rentals , nature walks , Eco tours , a Cafe with the best Veggie wrap ever and is a designated Critical wild life habitat !!!!!!!! I was there today , took a kayak up to the North end around Hideaway Beach and still blows my mind what a hidden gem with stunning surroundings this is ! The lagoon was like glass today ....... Beautiful !!!!!!!
