Marco Island is like a second home to me. I've been visiting regularly since 2008 and in 2014 my parents bought their retirement home on the island. Since then we have spent a lot more time there. In this post I've rounded up my favorite spots on the island, so if you ever want to visit this little slice of paradise, be sure to check out these places!
HOW TO GET THERE
Marco Island is about 45 minutes away from the Fort Myers airport.Your best bet is to rent a car so that you are able to travel around the island during your visit.
This casual little spot is definitely a hidden gem on the island probably my favorite place on the island. It's located on a cute little marina and the food never disappoints. I LOVE that they have sushi and the boom boom shrimp is a fan fave.
Located at the Hilton which was completely renovated back in 2017 so everything is new and super chic. The menu is somewhat small but everything I have ordered has tasted amazing. You can't beat the view either.
Not on Marco Island, but about a 10 minute drive north and totally worth it. They have the BEST carrot cake and key lime pie!
WHAT TO DO
GO TO THE BEACH-
Marco Island has some of the whitest sand you will ever see, it's blindingly beautiful. There are a two public beach accesses, Tigertail Beach and South Marco Beach access, both charge a small fee for parking.
Marco Island Farmers Market- Only open on Wednesdays, 7:30 AM-1PM, between Mid November-Mid April. Located at 901 Park Ave.
and if the weather isn't cooperating you can catch a movie at Marco Movies. They serve food and alcohol (yasss) but get there before your movie time because the theaters are small and the good seats fill up quick!
