Marco Island Holidays 2016/2017
Originally named San Marco Island by Spanish Explorers, Marco Island is the biggest of Florida's Ten Thousand Islands. The tropical climate and stunning beaches are the main reasons for people to visit Marco Island, but that’s not where it stops.
Collier Seminole State Park is located just a few miles from the island and provides a huge range of activities including fishing, boating, camping and more. If you are a wildlife lover, then there is a mile long nature walk around the park, as well as daily narrated boat tours.
The island is fantastic for shelling excursions, and at the Briggs Nature Centre there is also a half mile long boardwalk, from which visitors can view wildlife in its natural habitat. Located on the Gulf of Mexico, a holiday to Marco Island will provide water sports, sunshine, dolphins, fine dining and more, making it a fantastic destination for families of all ages.
