great for shelling, birding and running. the beach sand on Marco is not the softest but the shelling is amazing

We rented kayak's on the beach and followed Jay's instructions to get out and paddle the gulf side. We went to the northernmost part of the beach and had it all to ourselves. White sand and shells like crazy. The park facilities are clean and the little snack bar was welcome on the way out. $8 to park is well worth it (in and out all day or use the pass again at another park location!) People talked about having to walk through a "mucky" area to get over to the gulf side beach, but we found that to be untrue. It's more like a wade (up to your knees) over the sandy bottom of the inlet...no big deal (unless you are trying to carry way more stuff than you really need anyway!)

Walk as far north as you can and you'll be rewarded with pristine white sandy beach all to yourself. Search for sand dollars, watch the pelicans and terns diving for fish, snorkel in the clear waters and watch the dolphins play. Aboslutely magical - inetresting to wade through the lagoon at low tide too!

This beach often has good shelling. It’s a long walk from the condos but worth the trip if you enjoy a pristine beach, dolphins, and shelling.

Tigertail beach is a great place to walk if you're looking for shells. It's $8 for all day parking. They have restrooms and a little snack shack

We went to Tiger Beach when the tide was low. We walked across the lagoon with no problems. It was only up two right below waist level. Bathrooms are on the parking inside. You can park by the restrooms or drive on down and then walk quite a distance to the beach. We were able to cure your chairs across the lagoon. There is a little café there and bar. There is also a rental place for kayaks, paddle boards, other etc. they shall trees are a neat site and there are tons of sand dollars especially at low tide in the morning. The beach was absolutely beautiful

My husband is disabled, but we decided to give this beach a try anyway. So glad we did even though it required more stamina than we usually have. But we made it! You do have to pay $8 for parking. That doesn’t bother us because it was worth it! There is a nice concession stand and bathroom on the lagoon side. It’s a little bit of a hike to reach the lagoon, but there is a path to follow....some has a boardwalk. Then if you want to get to the actual gulf coast beach, you have to first cross the lagoon....wade across ....and then walk on another sandy path to get to the beach. But once you arrive, it is wonderful!
I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone who has difficulty with walking; it’s a hike and wading across the lagoon could be tricky if you don’t have good balance.
We both definitely have some health issues, but we took our time and rested.

In essence Marco Island is almost beach all the way around but the sections that are off the Hotel Row are quieter. Tiger beach is one of those areas. Not as wide but pleasant beach.

We walked for about two hours along the shoreline and found several sand dollars. The beach was not crowded at all.
