Marco Island live Beachcam
The 14 square mile tropical island of Marco Island is situated in the far southwestern part of Collier County and is surrounded by the natural beauty of mangroves and waterways, the Ten Thousand Islands to the south and the Gulf of Mexico to the west.
Marco Island is a world-class tropical Florida oasis away from busy schedules with modern, convenient access by road and air. Survey your vision of this new world from an airy sea balcony, beach cabana, campground hideaway or Old Florida porch rocker. Marco Island is best known for its rich archeological sites which reveal the good life Florida Calusa Indians shared with nature until the 16th century.
Enjoy scores of lush tropical championship golf courses and tennis courts, shops, spas and restaurants nearby. Cooling breezes waft you across two bridges, to Naples Florida in the north and to the emerald wilderness of the Everglades in the south.
