Lying to the south of Naples, Marco Island is the first and biggest of the Ten Thousand Islands. Extremely nautical in nature, it is made up of three communities: the resort scene of Marco, the fishing community of Goodland and boaters haven Isles of Capri.
See & Do
Most of Marco Island's attraction is recreational - boating, fishing, paddling and enjoying the great outdoors. The island lies along the Paradise Coast Blueway trail that connects to waters in Everglades National Park. History lovers will want to visit the Marco Island Historical Museum. For the best beach amenities, head to Tigertail Beach.
Marco Island serves up a delectable menu of restaurants that typically specialize in local seafood, such as new to the scene Fin Bistro and longtime favorite Snook Inn. Head to fishing village Goodland for more fresh-off-the-docks seafood. For French, there is Bistro Soleil; for Italian, Sale e Pepe or Arturo's.
