Biking on Marco Island: Bike Paths, Rentals, and Tours

Marco Island is a hidden gem among Florida getaway spots, and the laid-back nature of this locale makes it ideal for your next getaway.

Avoid the crowds of Orlando and Tampa by retreating to Marco Island, where you can experience all the sun and sand while actually getting to relax on your vacation. Since Marco Island is relatively small, it’s easy to make your way around the whole area, and one of the best ways to do so is by biking! Our Marco Island vacation rentals are just moments away from all the best attractions, and biking between destinations will make you feel like one of the locals.
