The beach is beautiful and close in proximity to restaurants and beach rental equipment. Great place to visit whether your there to swim sunbath or walk the sea shore picking up some unique shells. It’s a shame that Marco didn’t save more land from developers...More

I looked it up and online, called red tide, some kind og algal bloom that makes toxic. Not so nice lying with running nose and coughing. So the beautiful beach trip was not so nice..

I wish we had visited this beach sooner in our trip. The sand is white powdery and the sunset is unbelievably beautiful! Some of our group went swimming while others fished off the rocks (and caught fish). We also saw lots of dolphins swimming fairly...More

Great food, great view of western horizon. Enjoy it each time we are there. Look for public beach entrance or through Apollo condo building.

This beach is very pretty but it is nearly impossible to find a place to park. There is a very small private lot that fills up really quickly. There is a lot on Collier, but is only for contractors during the week. They direct you...More

Though parking can be tough at times, the sunsets are worth it. Be sure to get out of the parking lot withing a half hour of sunset

This is a truly great place for sunsets. Not at all crowded and easy to get a good view. The shelling is great any time of day but very good right after sunset.

We arrived about 9 am and found this beach to be so lovely, clean and pretty! People didn’t begin arriving until about 10:30 with their wagon loads and kids in tow. It’s a shelling paradise for sure! We liked the fact that they offered life...More

Well, Marco is just fabulous. We have been going there since 1985. Every season is great. It depends if you like hotter or cooler weather. We love May to November since there are fewer people and you can get into any... More

If you are using Public Access , probably back to car and nearest gas station. I doubt you can walk into a nearby hotel restroom.
