A Marco Island vacation provides a tropical escape in southwest Florida! iTrip Vacations Marco Island manages rentals in Marco Island, Goodland and Isles of Capri.
Situated between Naples and the Florida Everglades, Marco Island is the largest and most developed area in Ten Thousand Islands, a chain of barrier islands off the Gulf coast. Our guests enjoy direct access to beaches and a variety of water-related activities. To start the day, go canoeing, kayaking, shelling, and dolphin and whale-watching. For those into scuba diving, the Artificial Reef Project off Marco Island's coast provides a habitat for over 200 fish species and sea turtles as they migrate from Ten Thousand Islands. Rent equipment to explore on your own, or book a local tour that showcases the area's best spots.
When it's time to venture outdoors, visitors have several public beaches and parks that welcome everyone. Popular spots include South Marco Beach, Keewaydin Island, Tigertail Beach and Cape Romano. In addition, enjoy Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, Isles of Capri Marina and Marco Island Marina. For a day trip, drive east to the Everglades where visitors can ride airboats and bicycles as well as kayak. Home to thousands of birds – including herons, egrets, burrowing owls, bald eagles, ospreys, pelicans, shorebirds and seabirds – Marco Island is also a bird lover’s paradise.
Want to book a fishing trip? Head to nearby Goodland, a quaint fishing village. This destination serves as a top place for fishing trips and offers a laid-back, local vibe. Several companies host half-day and full-day fishing excursions with inshore and offshore options. Expect to catch king mackerel, tarpon, snook, snapper, pompano, sheepshead and grouper. To learn about the area, plan an eco-tour that pairs shelling, jet skiing and wildlife education with scenic views.
Golfers can select from dozens of golf courses in Marco Island and nearby Naples. As one of the top golfing destinations in Florida, players can choose from waterfront and inland courses with public and private options. For a memorable game, get a tee time at The Island Country Club and Marriott Island Beach Resort. If playing in Naples, try Hammock Bay and Lelay Resort Golf and Country Club.
These activities keep our Marco Island vacation rental guests busy, but they need a break when hunger strikes. Fortunately, Marco Island has over 75 restaurants specializing in everything from hearty breakfast menus to locally caught seafood dishes. Many Marco Island restaurants sit on the water, providing diners picturesque views while trying fresh flavors and many offer complimentary transportation. Otherwise, cab fare costs roughly $6-$8 to or from anywhere on the island.
Shopping also ranks as a must-do activity. Find well-known designers, locally-owned shops and quaint boutiques scattered throughout the island. Top spots include Esplanade Shoppes at Marco Island, Marco Town Center Mall, Marco Walk Plaza and Shops of Marco. Naples also has several shopping centers, including Naples Outlet Center and Third Street South.
Those who book a Marco Island vacation rental can also immerse themselves in art and culture. Start at Marco Island Historical Museum, which highlights the island's history including its first known inhabitants, the Calusa Indians, early pioneer life and the island's transformation into the destination it is today. Marco Island Center for the Arts hosts musical performances, art exhibits and classes.
For more culture and to meet locals, attend an annual event or local festival. From international boat shows to seafood and music festivals, it's easy to celebrate island living. Attend Marco Island Boat Show, Marco Island Seafood and Music Festival and Island Style Boat Parade, to name a few.
