The hurricane didn't do much damage that I can see to this beach. The rocky jetty at the south might be a little smaller, but other than that, it's still a wonderful beach. Park across from the entrance at Swallow Ave ($8 county run parking,...More

This beach is beautiful with its soft white sand. Some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. Marco Island tends to be an expensive travel destination. The Tigertail Nature Preserve is a must visit on the north end of the beach.

Marco Island is wonderful place, with a beach at it's core. The sand is beautiful, but because of the sea shell makeup is rougher than one might expect. The beach is so peaceful, and is a great place to go shelling, or to just sit...More
