Apartments on Marco Island
Marco Island is one of the most popular holiday islands on Florida's southwest coast. So it's no wonder that when you're looking for a holiday home, an apartment or a holiday home, you'll find it all over the island. The central location, the short distances to the white dream beaches and the excellent fish restaurants are the main characteristics of the always light-flooded and modernly furnished accommodations. Many accommodations are located directly on one of the many canals and have their own jetty and boat, so you can leave for the Gulf of Mexico whenever you want.

The 60 square kilometers large island offers with its numerous snow-white beaches ideal conditions for an extensive beach vacation under Florida's sun. If you're looking for a change from splashing around, sunbathing and relaxing, you'll want to dedicate yourself to water sports. You have the choice between surf courses, guided dives and trend sports such as stand-up paddling. Alternatively, you can join a local guide for deep-sea fishing or take part in guided tours where you can get up close and personal with sea turtles.
