Miles of white sandy beaches, boat trips through mangrove swamps and fishing in one of the most laid-back places in Florida: welcome to Marco Island.
Spring is the season that most people come to the island, with pleasant temperatures and less rain than at other times of year. However, it can get crowded and more expensive at this time.
It’s cheaper to visit in the summer, through July and August. This is largely thanks to the high amount of rainfall, although it is still very warm.
November, before Thanksgiving, is another good period to visit as it’s very mild but still relatively inexpensive, or you can visit in December for a spot of winter sun.
Whether you’re looking for a warm weather winter break or heading to the island with the crowds in the spring, you stand the best chance of finding cheap flights to Marco Island with Orbitz.

There is a public airport on Marco Island offering limited flights to destinations in Florida and the Keys. But for the most part, visitors here fly in to Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) in Fort Myers. The airport is only 47 miles from the island and by far the most convenient option. It is the second busiest single runway airport in the US and serves around nine million passengers a year.
Although around 95% of people visiting the island do so through Southwest Florida Airport, it is also possible to travel to Miami International (MIA) or Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International (FLL). Both involve a drive of more than 100 miles but if you are combining your visit to Marco Island with other destinations in Florida then this could be an option.
A choice of airlines offers regular cheap flights to Marco Island from around the US.
Most visitors fly in to Southwest Florida airport. From here, the most convenient way to get to the island is with a rental car. It’s less than 50 miles’ drive, taking the I-75 towards Naples and County Highway 951.
Once on the island, if you don’t have a hire car you can get around using taxis. Some of the islands taxi firms offer complimentary journeys to some of the restaurants and attractions.
For a more sedate and relaxed way of getting around, rental bikes are available from a number of spots on the island. Guide-Flights
Marco Island is a tropical oasis located on the southern tip of southwest Florida, lined by beautiful white beaches and mangrove swamps.
Hunt for seashells – for which the island is famous – along the shoreline or take the boat to nearby Keewaydin Island. Explore the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge in a kayak or canoe, weaving through the mangroves as you spot manatees, sea otters, crocodiles and more. And, after a hard day’s paddle, why not spoil yourself in one of the island’s luxurious spas before dining out on the water’s edge on freshly caught crab?
Marco Island runs on Eastern time with seasonal variations for Daylight Savings.
