Geographically, Marco Island is located 110 miles west of Miami, 100 miles west of Ft. Lauderdale, 180 miles south of Tampa, 49 miles south of Ft. Myers, and 21 miles south of Naples.  Following are estimated travel times from the airports:  Ft. Myers:  45 minutes; Ft. Lauderdale:  1 hour and 45 minutes; Miami:  2 hours and 15 minutes;  Sarasota:  3 hours; and Tampa:  3 hours and 15 minutes.

Marco is the largest and most northerly of the 10,000 islands, being six miles long and four miles wide.  The beach runs along the west side of the island, which is where the beachfront condos (including ours) are located.  The island has approximately 9,000 acres of condos, canal homes, restaurants, shops and many other amenities.  The climate is semi-tropical, with an average temperature of 74 degrees F.  The island is beautifully landscaped with many varieties of native plants, including palms and hibiscus.  There are many endangered species on or around the island, including bald eagles, manatees, and sea turtles just to name a few.  Dolphins are observed almost daily from the balcony of our unit.

The white-sand beach is immaculate and is kept clean by regular rakings.  No doubt you will want to walk along the waterís edge barefooted, leaving your footprints in the sand and enjoying the feeling of the cool water lapping upon your toes.  Most canít resist picking up seashells and some become addicted to collecting!
