Marco is the largest of the Ten Thousand Islands on the Gulf of Mexico in Southern Florida. It’s a great place for honeymooners to relax on the long sandy beaches, play in the waves, or take a dolphin-spotting cruise. The island is somewhat secluded (but not isolated), and quieter than some other resort areas on the southwest Florida coast.

If gorgeous sunsets on the beach without too many people around sounds like your ideal honeymoon, Marco Island could be your spot on the Florida Gulf Coast.

Best Time for a Honeymoon on Marco Island: The tropical climate on Marco Island makes it a pleasant escape any time of the year. Peak season for tourism is January to April, with locals recommending April and May as the best months for enjoying the ocean (water warms up nicely), but not oppressively hot temps.
