South Marco Beach, Marco Island

(4.1/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Lovely beach, clean, minimal loud music or rowdy crowd -- great sunsets and good sea shelling....worth the rental
