Marco Island may be a small, close-knit community, but there is so much to see, especially during a short spring break trip! Given that Marco Island is six miles in length and four miles in width, having a bit of additional transport assistance is always beneficial.

  1. Explore by Water

Prefer to get your sea legs while on our beautiful island? Rent a paddleboard and explore the canal system, mangrove tunnels, and more. There are 100 miles of man-made waterfront canals on Marco Island, and the majority of homes are waterfront locations. So whether your preference is natural beauty or manmade luxury, getting around by paddleboard will be sure to help you explore paradise.

There is a reason why Trip Advisor voted Marco Island as the #1 island in the U.S. and #4 in the world. Among its many beaches is the renowned Tigertail Beach - one of the best beaches in Florida. A white-sand beach, developing barrier islands, bird watching and shelling opportunities, tidal pool exploration, breathtaking sunsets, and glorious sunrises await visitors. This beach also has a playground, picnic area, parking, and full facilities. Whatever outdoor activities you enjoy best, you’re likely to find it here.
