Things to do
-Beaches: Pristine, snow-white beaches are right on the doorstep of rentals at Somerset Marco Island. But those wishing for something more secluded can find solace on one of the many beaches dotting the hundreds of surrounding islands accessible only by boat.
-Watersports: With such a wealth of surrounding islands and waterways both natural and manmade, getting about by boat in Marco Island is often more convenient than by car. Beach equipment rental outlets are everywhere to supply everything from surfing to fishing, and many marinas give tourists the choice of hiring their own boat or chartering one.
-Golf: Marco Island is located just to the south of the city of Naples, self-styled as the `Golf Capital of the World' for good reason. With over 80 championship courses to choose from only a short drive away, keen golfers will be in hog heaven.
-Shopping: Marco Island has a mature and typically affluent population, and the shopping reflects this in spades. The malls and shopping areas exude class, but in a laid-back, very approachable Florida way. Marco Walk Shopping Centre is within an easy stroll of Somerset Marco Island apartments, with several others only a short drive or boat trip away.
-Nightlife: With the population being what it is, the nightlife on Marco Island is typically easygoing, refined, or both. Nearby Marco Walk Shopping Centre has a number of dining and drinking establishments far beyond typical mall or beachfront fare, as does the Marco Town Centre Mall a short drive to the north.
Weather in Somerset Marco Island
Hot, humid and subtropical are the adjectives usually used to describe Florida during the long summers, when temperatures can reach into the mid-30s and afternoon thunderstorms are frequent and heavy. Being surrounded by so much water, however, means the heat never becomes as oppressive as it can in other holiday hotspots. This same temperature moderation applies in the winter, Florida's high season, where temperatures typically hang around the mid-20s. Rainfall is sparse, and frosts practically unheard of.
Travel to Somerset Marco Island
The two best airport options for Marco Island are Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers, at only 49 miles away, and Miami International Airport at 103 miles away. The advantage Miami has over Southwest Florida is direct flights to Europe and the UK, whereas with the latter, a change is necessary: despite its 'International' moniker it is a purely North American hub. There is no public transport, though there is a Greyhound station in the adjacent city of Naples.
