If there is one thing that Florida is famous for, it is the wonderful beaches that can be found along the coastal areas of the state, and in truth there are few that can match the magnificent white sand beaches of Marco Island.
This beautiful coastal city lies on the edge of the Everglades and is a great place to relax and let the worries of the world disappear.
You can enjoy great sporting activities on and around the beach, while staying at one of the best hotels in the Sunshine state!
An Introduction to Marco Island
On the Southwest Gulf Coast, Marco Island is the largest barrier island in the Ten Thousand Islands area, and the closest real city is Naples, which lies just to the north of the island.
This lovely part of the state has been a popular tourist area since the 1960’s, after the island went through a great redevelopment period.
The island is accessible by bridge, meaning it is ideal for those who are looking to drive to the location from elsewhere in Florida, while it is served by the two small airports in Naples and on Marco Island, with a larger regional airport in Fort Lauderdale.
The Marco Island Marriott Resort
This beachfront property is the best hotel on the island if you are looking to create some special memories during your visit, while being provided with the wonderful comforts of home, newly renovated rooms, and spectacular views.
The Marco Island Marriott Resort has two lovely swimming pools and an amazing spa that has over the top treatments to help in your relaxation, as well as sunbeds and umbrellas on the beach for the guests to enjoy.
What to Do in Marco Island
Swimming in the calm waters and luxurious pools is a popular activity for those with an active lifestyle. The San Marco Marriott Resort has two championship golf courses if that is your sport, along with a fitness center if you need to work out, and plenty of sailing opportunities nearby too.
If you are a food lover then there are plenty of options available, including the superb Korals sushi restaurant which offers great sushi and a range of cocktails, all overlooking the beautiful beach and Gulf waters.
When it comes to visiting the area, there is a lot more to do once you are finished unwinding on the beach!
