There are so many things to do on the island. Explore the island on the 4 Crusier Bikes that are provided at each home or by boat via the Keewaydin Express or private charter. Of course there is the BEACH which is just a short 5 min walk from any of the homes. South Beach has amazing shells that you can take home to friends and family as free souveneirs! There are also plenty of restaurants and shopping just a short walk from any of the homes. The Marco Walk is a 5 min walk from 700 Seagrape, a 10 min walk from 926 S Flamingo and a 5 min drive from 610 Hernando. The Espenade which is just a 3 min bike ride from 610 Hernando also has several dining choices and shops.
For the outdoor enthusiasts you can rent jet skis, parasail or go on a dolphin watching tour through Marco Island Water Sports on South Beach and Tigertail Beach. You will see little huts along the beach to make reservations or you can do it in advance. Each home has a binder with tips on things to do while in Marco. We have also provided a list of nearby public golf courses and parks below. Some of our favorite kid friendly activities are the Dolphin Explorer Tour and the Black Pearl cruise.
