Tigertail Beach – Marco Island, Florida

TigerTailBeach-Sunset3In continuation of my trip report from Marco Island, Florida, decided to add a summary from one of the interesting places to visit while on the island — that being Tigertail beach – which in my opinion is best accessible via a very invigorating (read – good exercise) walk from the many beach resort hotels on the island.

More specifically, if you are staying at one of the hotels like

  • Marco Beach Ocean Resort
  • Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort
  • Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort

You can certainly plan for that nice walk to and back from the Tigertail beach.  Here is a map to give you some orientation of the resort hotels and the beach:

Now, why spend the time going to that beach?   Well, for several reasons:

  • As I already stated above — great exercise
  • Beautiful views of the Marco Island beach
  • Good shell collecting
  • Interesting experience of walking on the sand bar in shallow water during low tide

The beach is located approximately 40-50 minutes walking from the Marco Beach Ocean Resort beach area.  I recommend the late afternoon as the best time of the day to experience it as it is more likely to be able to walk along the sand bar which at low tide will be at about ankle depth under water

You can see the special views from the beach and shells to be found there – Enjoy
