Things to do
-Beaches: The private beach serving Gulfview Club Marco Island holiday accommodation is sectioned from an unbroken stretch of over ten miles of pearl-white sands. There are numerous other smaller beaches on the hundreds of surrounding islands, mostly uninhabited and only reachable by boat.
-Watersports: Marco Island is strewn with canals to allow water access to every part, so boating is second nature here. Indeed, it is quite possible to use a motorboat as one's sole mode of transport. For visitors, there are a proliferation of marinas to choose from, meaning waterskiing, fishing, and eco-tour charters are only a short walk away.
-Everglades: Florida's iconic wetland wilderness area is surprisingly made up of seven distinct ecosystems, meaning exploration is not necessarily tied to a boat. Camping, hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding are all fun ways to look around this unique collection of habitats.
-Nightlife: Marco Island has an eclectic range of diversions to suit every taste, though 'casual' is a theme that dominates, as one might expect by a beach-dominated culture. Crab shacks on the shore rub shoulders with more refined dining establishments, while an even greater range is available after just a short drive into nearby Naples.
-Shopping: With a mature and wealthy population, Marco Island's shopping districts cater to the tasteful and refined, which is reflected in the décor and ambience of its malls. Marco Walk Shopping Centre is within an easy stroll of Gulfview Club, while the Esplanade Shoppes and Marco Town Centre Mall are only a short drive away.
Weather in Gulfview Club Marco Island
Of the entire vastness of North America, subtropical Florida is the epicentre of tourism; primarily because of its weather. Long, hot summers contrast with mild, short winters, both of which are suitable to holiday in. Temperatures in the summer can hit the mid-30°C range, which isn't particularly hot, but can feel it with the added humidity. This moisture contributes to the regular thunderstorms, however, which account for most of the annual rainfall. Winters tend to mirror British summers, with weather dry and temperatures in the low-20s.
Travel to Gulfview Club Marco Island
The only really sensible way to travel both to and within the US is by flying and driving; it's how the majority of Americans travel, and with good reason. With an infrastructure almost exclusively biased towards the automobile, opting for public transport (unless in New York or perhaps Chicago) is asking for a headache. At 47 miles away, Southwest Florida International Airport is the nearest major hub to Marco Island, albeit a purely North American one despite its 'international' label. At least one change will have to be made to get here. Miami is the only actual international airport with direct flights, at 120 miles away.
