New Gulf beach access opens
City of Marco Island and Marco Island Area Chamber of Commerce officials joined representatives from the Marriott Crystal Shores Vacation Resort for a ribbon cutting for the new neighborhood Gulf beach-access point.
The access is located on the west side of Collier Boulevard where it intersects with Winterberry Drive.
The access between the Marriott property and the Hilton Resort is handicap-accessible and has a shower near the boardwalk.
There are no parking provisions, but the point is a short walk from the Turtle Parking Lot just south of the area.
A pick-up and drop-off area is provided south and west of Collier Boulevard.
