I am a native Floridian, having grown up in Miami. I retired 7 years ago to Marco Island and live 3 blocks from Tigertail "beach". What a disaster! If you are looking for a hot expanse of greenish-gray ooze, bordering on a 3 foot deep semi-polluted lagoon, this is for you. Of course, you can get to the Gulf of Mexico two ways: 1) about a 1/2 mile walk around the lagoon,barren and hot; or 2), wade 100 yards thru the luke-warm, murky water to the dunes and then another 300 yards to the Gulf. There's a group called "Friends of Tigertail" who oppose the construction of a boardwalk to make the walk to the Gulf family-friendly. Tiger's Rear-End would be a better description.
