Marco Island, FL is tucked away in the mangrove covered islands of southwest Florida's Gulf coast. Marco Island has evolved into a premier retirement and winter vacation destination. Marco Island is a quiet town surrounded by uninhabited tropical islands, lagoons, bays, and the Gulf of Mexico. To the north you will find Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve home to the Briggs Memorial Nature Center. On the south side is the land of 10,000 islands more than 80 coastal miles rich with fly fishing and ecotourism await you. This pristine Florida habitat is home to several small fishing villages. In this region you will also find Collier-Seminole State Park, the 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge, Big Cypress National Preserve, Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve and the 5500 square mile Everglades National Park.

Marco Island is roughly 25 square miles. Development of this beautiful island was done with an aim to create as much waterfront property as possible. Over 90% of residential homes and condos are situated on canals, bays and wide water ocean views. While the year round population of Marco Island, FL is about 13,000, island population explodes to well over 30,000 during the months of December to April.
