Marco Island

Description

Marco is a small sea island, or barrier island, on the Gulf Coast of the United States. Located 20 miles (32 km) south of Naples in Collier County, Florida, it is the largest of the Ten Thousand Islands. Marco is primarily a year-round beach and boating resort island. It is home to the JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort and Hilton Marco Island Resort, a golf club, a yacht club, parks, and nature areas. The six miles of uncrowded beaches on Marco Island are among the widest in Florida and feature bright white, sugar sand and bountiful shelling opportunities. There are two public beaches (Tigertail and South Beach), a private beach complex for residents (Residents' Beach), and offshore island beaches, such as Keewaydin Island. It is close to the shopping and restaurants of Naples, while preserveing a secluded, island atmosphere with limited traffic. With over 100 miles of canals, Marco Island is a boater's paradise.Marco Island is a principal city of the Naples–Marco Island Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 16,413 at the 2010 census.Marco Island is the largest barrier island within Southwest Florida's Ten Thousand Islands area extending southerly to Cape Sable. Parts of the island have some scenic, high elevations relative to the generally flat south Florida landscape. Like the city of Naples to the north, Marco Island has a tropical climate; specifically a tropical wet and dry or savanna type (Aw under the Köppen system). It is known for its distinct wet and dry seasons, with most of the rainfall falling between the months of June and October.
