Marco Island

Marco Island

The largest of the Ten Thousand Islands and just to the south of Naples, Marco Island is home to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches with access to the Gulf of Mexico and mangrove-lined estuaries of the Everglades. Offering both a sophisticated resort area on four miles of pristine coastline and a funky fishing village with a historic nautical community, water is a way of life for Marco Island residents and visitors. 



A stylish community often referred to as the region's hub, Naples is known for its sophisticated downtown, effortlessly blending nature and glamour. Here you will find award-winning white-sandy beaches, famed golf courses, an impressive selection of restaurants serving fresh-off-the-dock seafood, boutique and designer shops, and many cultural attractions while retaining its intimate, small-town feel. 

Everglades tour

Explore the Everglades

The Everglades National Park is officially recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is part of the largest wetlands ecosystem in the US. Where the mainland meets the ocean, this western entrance is FREE and the best way to experience the wilderness is by the very many guided tours on offer - whether it's by airboat or kayak! 

It's the only sub-tropical mangrove wilderness in the U.S, featuring endangered and rare wildlife species in their natural habitat, and the only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles cohabit, plus over 350 species of birds.

The Everglades is a straightforward drive from Naples/Marco Island and will take approximately 2 hours, making it an easy day trip for an experience like no other.
