Welcome To Marco Island

Where Nature and Luxury Live In Harmony.

Welcome to a truly unique way of life. One that brings you close to some of Florida’s most pristine natural wonders, while also cradling you in the lap of luxury thanks to some of Southwest Florida’s most exclusive real estate opportunities. Equal parts charming fishing village and five-star resort town, this cozy barrier island is a one-of-a-kind paradise to call home.

One of Florida’s famed Ten Thousand Islands

One of the primary reasons Marco Island makes such a unique home is that it is (and forever will be) the largest and only inhabited island among Florida’s iconic Ten Thousand Islands. If you’ve never been to the Ten Thousand Islands Wildlife Refuge, It represents North America’s largest expanse of mangrove forest and is a coastal hammock filled with oak, cabbage palm and tropical hardwoods like the unique Gumbo Limbo.

For nature buffs, this is heaven. On summer nights loggerhead turtles drag themselves onto the beaches to nest – you can watch! Manatees feed inside the estuary and hunker down in the warm waters during winter. Bald eagles soar overhead searching the open water for a meal.

Whether exploring on foot, paddling a kayak, or cruising on a flats boat, this is native Southwest Florida at your doorstep. With a home on Marco Island, it’s yours to enjoy anytime. Better yet, when you’re not out in the unspoiled world, you’re free to spoil yourself with other great aspects of life on Marco.

Unspoiled Beaches

There are two local beaches on Marco Island. South Marco Beach is a wonderfully white swath of sand, lined with sable palms and plush hotels. It is the perfect spot to spend a chill day beside the shimmering Gulf of Mexico.

But if we’re being honest, Tigertail Beach, is the star of Marco Island. A treasure trove of white sandy swatches, tidal pools, kayak trails, and birdwatching hotspots, Tigertail is made for exploration. It’s also a “shelling” sensation thanks to three miles of beachfront where Calicos, Fighting Conchs, Banded Tulips, and other beauties wash ashore each day for your picking pleasure.

Local Eats and Treats

Did you know that Everglades City, just south of Marco Island, is the Stone Crab Capital of the World? It’s true and from October through May, you’ll be able to crack into these sustainably delicious claws at local restaurants and eateries around Marco Island. Of course, there’s no shortage of dining options on this tiny island – New York delis, local beach bars, waterfront fish shacks, casual beer halls, five-star culinary experiences – Marco is a food and drink paradise. It all depends on what you’re in the mood to enjoy today.

Shopping Gets A Tropical Vibe

Let’s start by ensuring you that although Marco is a barrier island, you’re not going to miss out on any conveniences living here. Groceries to pharmacies to whatever you might need are close by. What you’ll also find are unique local treasures like The Shops of Olde Marco, a sunny collection of eclectic boutiques, art galleries, craft shops, and eateries. Take a stroll down this courtyard lined with colorful, tin-roofed buildings and not only are you sure to find some unique buys, but you’ll also experience a telltale Marco Island vibe.
