Marco Island Voted “Top 5 Most Beautiful Small Towns in America”
Marco Island Real Estate Information
Where else can you find a 4 by 6 mile tropical island with 4 ½ miles of sun-washed beaches, polka-dotted with seashells, abundant waterways and bays, emerald Gulf waters and splendid sunsets? Marco Island is a subtropical island paradise in the good old U.S.A., with the security and convenience of two bridges to the mainland of southwest Florida.
Marco Island is one of the most beautiful and desirable resort communities on the North American continent. This one of a kind, self-contained, full-service, easily accessible, diverse tropical community is nestled in one of the most dynamic, ecologically spectacular nature preserves in the world. As the farthest southernmost beach community on the west coast of Florida, we enjoy immediate access to things others can only dream of seeing. Imagine wide sugar-fine beaches and thousands of nearby uninhabited islands dancing with snowy egrets, great blue herons and comical pelicans. To the east and south stretches the Everglades National Park, a World Heritage Site.
Just across the bridge to the north is Naples, with ritzy resorts, elegant art galleries, championship golf courses, upscale restaurants and shopping. Marco Island, sets between untouched Florida and refined Naples, and is a blend of both. Not only is Marco Island a water wonderland for boating, fishing, and magnificent beaches, it also boasts outstanding resorts, bountiful restaurants and shopping, a flourishing cultural community, and more than 100 varied social clubs and charitable organizations. There is something for everyone. It’s almost more fun in the sun than time allows!
Living on Marco Island
Marco Islanders choose to live here, and are thrilled by the magical view of the island every time they cross the bridge. Our community of dreamers chooses to live life to its fullest. We offer friendly small-town charm with big city amenities, plus the sophistication of Naples right next door. The island is about 80 percent waterfront property with elevations to 50 feet, the highest in southwest Florida. Marco Island offers beachfront condos and homes, waterfront properties for boaters, charming walk-to-the beach homes and condos, very private gated developments, homes on the golf course, and many inland choices. Nothing on the island is more than 10 minutes from the beach!
