There is nothing quite as relaxing as walking on the beach in Marco Island. It is great exercise and gives one time to reflect on how beautiful life really can be. All your cares just float away and are replaced with a calmness that is difficult to find in this busy everyday world.
Most visitors to Marco Island come for the beauty and adventures of South (or Crescent) Beach. Others come for the peace, beauty, and serenity of Tigertail Beach. Our guests at Sea Mar Condo (www.seamarcondo.com) seem to like a taste of both and we are located within easy walking distance of both beaches.
Walking Tigertail Beach
On the map, Sea Mar Condo is located at the “1 mile” mark from Residents’ Beach. (Residents’ Beach is a private beach area for residents of the island, but anyone can walk along the shoreline in this area). If you leave from South Seas Towers and go toward Tigertail Beach you walk approximately 1.2 miles to Tigertail. You can continue beyond this point and it is one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in the world. In fact, Coastal Living magazine named Tigertail Beach “One of the Most Beautiful Secret Beaches in the World” last year. It is best to walk this area of Marco Island in the period of 2 hours before low tide and 2 hours after low tide. Places along the walk can be difficult to maneuver during high tide, but there are easy trails leading around the high water areas that you can take. Tigertail Beach is perfect for shelling and viewing wildlife, especially wading and nesting birds. Note: Tigertail Beach is the recipient of a complete beach renourshment project. This leaves a more open lagoon area with wider beach areas.
Walking South (Crescent) Beach
Leaving South Seas Towers and walking toward the South end of the island takes you along Crescent or South Beach. This stretch of beach is approximately 3 miles and is lined with luxury hotels and water sports. South Beach is the perfect walk for people watching, shelling, and gazing at the beauty of this crescent shaped beach along the Gulf. The sunsets along this beach are amazing as well. During the sunset hour, it is very common for the beach to be lined with residents and visitors alike to see the spectacular colors of a Marco Island sunset.
