Create an itinerary including South Marco Beach
Enjoy some sand-and-surf time without large crowds at South Marco Beach. In addition to being a cozy place for swimming, snorkeling, and sunning, the beach is rich in seashells you can collect. The sand is relatively coarse, meaning it's less likely to stick to your body and clothes when wet; some find it uncomfortable to walk on barefoot, so bring flip-flops or sneakers. You'll find public restrooms in the parking lot next to the beach. Parking tickets are valid for the whole day. If you need a chair or an umbrella, you should bring your own. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Marco Island fast, fun, and easy.

  • We stayed at a condo on south Marco beach. This beach is beautiful with white sand and many seashells along the shoreline. The sunsets are spectacular!!

  • We have wanted to visit here for a long time. Worth the trip, spent the afternoon on the beach and watched the sunset. Awesome. Do not leave too early as the colors kept getting better and better even after the sun had set.
  • Marco Island is both very nice pace to visit and one of the most visitor unfriendly places to visit. They don't want you there unless you are renting or booking into a hotel. You can't stop anywhere, you can't go to the beach, beats me what you can do there unless you are doing one of the above for housing. It is fine for me, there are soo many other places you can go and enjoy more.
