Relax by the water in Marco Island

This barrier isle of southern Florida is carved by waterways and peppered with neat cul-de-sacs, and it hosts countless villas and apartments that ooze chic seaside charm. Virtually all Marco Island vacation rentals are on the water, whether that means a marina running past the back garden or a front-row seat looking out over the sugar-white quartz sand of South Marco Beach. Boat trips, dolphin-spotting and kayaking excursions into the surrounding mangrove reserves are all on the menu. And so is good old relaxation under the sun, especially for those who bag themselves Marco Island vacation rentals with a pool.

Things to do

The wild side of Marco Island

National parks fringe the apartments and villas of Marco Island, making these deluxe vacation rentals a great base for exploring the natural attractions of Southern Florida. Top of the list is surely the vast Big Cypress National Preserve. A safari through the swaying grasses and the hardwood hammocks can mean glimpses of snapping gators and hissing rattlesnakes. Then there's the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge. Hop in a kayak or charter a motorboat to explore the endless array of sandbanks and mangroves. Wild camping on beaches, encounters with ancient archaeological sites and snorkeling are all possibilities.


Paddling and purring over Marco Island waves

Marco Island is a real hotspot for boat trips out across the Mexican Gulf. You can charter little paddleboats and splash around the shoreline, if you want, but most will prefer a bona fide dolphin tour. They last hours and take travelers across the swells to find bottlenose pods whizzing over the waves. Other water-based excursions will take you to the amazing Ten Thousand Islands. That means navigating their wealth of creeks and inlets, passing dense mangrove forests and white-sand beaches as you go.


Best time to travel to Marco Island vacation homes

The 2-season tropical routine dominates the weather down in Marco Island. Like the rest of Southern Florida around it, this diminutive barrier of sands and mangroves sees downpours during the hot and humid summer months of June, July and August. Fall, in September and October, can mean the occasional storm passing through. That leaves winter – November to March – and spring – April and May – as the top times to visit. They are warm, but not too warm, always sunny and with little rain.

Natural features

Marco Island is where hardwoods, swamps and seas converge

You can venture along the final lengths of the Florida Trail to discover murky swamps and sawgrasses towered over by old-growth oak and cypress hammocks– beware of the gators and snakes, though. Along the coast are the Ten Thousand Islands, where white-sand beaches and mangroves converge.
