Isles of Capri/Marco Island/Naples   View Map

Isles of Capri Sunset  Our area is a dream location to relax and enjoy the outdoor lifestyle. The Isles of Capri are two miles from Marco Island and its fabulous beaches, shops and restaurants, and 20 minutes from Naples' sophisticated restaurants and shops.

Collier County, Florida boasts more golf courses than any other county in the US. We have courses both public and private, offering every style of play imaginable. Isles of Capri ShopsWe also have many boat rentals and waterside services just minutes away, providing a variety of ways to explore the fabulous waterways and islands, walking and shelling and watching the amazing Florida sunsets. We have superb, inexpensive restaurants within walking distance where you can sip on cocktails while looking out over the boats and marina.

You can get a sense of the peacefulness of this area even before you arrive. Shortly after you cross US 41 heading south on 951, you come upon the wetlands that surround the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Sanctuary. Isles of Capri GolfAlong this stretch of road, there's an interesting mix of manmade structures and protected wild areas, which eventually changes to mangrove shoreline as the homes and businesses fade from view. Just before the first signs of Marco Island appear around the bend, you come to Capri Boulevard, the entrance to the Isles of Capri.

Once you're settled, you can begin to take in the surroundings - you can almost breathe the tranquility. With a minimum of passing traffic, the area is refreshingly quiet. Isles of Capri RestaurantsThe breeze and the seagulls are all you hear most of the time. As you travel the area, you go past neatly manicured homes, palm trees, and water which laps up to the edges of the road in some places. There is a sense of openness in this area, an airy feeling created by the vastness of the Gulf and the shoreward breeze that blows regularly.

And of course, boats are everywhere. The marinas provide all of the services and materials a boater needs, as well as providing a means to get boats into and out of the water. Isles of Capri DolphinsFrom the first light of dawn, the fishing boats can be seen leaving the docks for the morning. Like clockwork, crabbing boats and fishing charters alike head out to sea in the morning, and return with equal regularity at sunset. Sport fishermen, sightseers, water sports enthusiasts and nature lovers can all be seen in boats ranging from 35-foot offshore trawlers to kayaks, heading out on the water to enjoy everything this area has to offer.

Isles of Capri Birds One surprising pleasure you'll find in our area is a number of wonderful places to go for dining and drinking. We have been truly blessed with a number of excellent waterfront restaurants and "chickee" bars that make for an entertaining evening out.

Serenity, wonderful people, beautiful surroundings, and a wide variety of recreational activities make our area a hidden treasure in Southwest Florida, a little piece of paradise that inspires, relaxes, and heals both mind and body.
