Welcome to the Venice of the United States – this is how the beautiful Cape Coral is also known for its approximately 400 miles of waterways.
The location on the west coast of Florida on the Gulf of Mexico is an excellent starting point for the most beautiful beaches in Florida. Cape Coral is separated from the neighboring city of Fort Myers and by the Caloosahatchee River. But even the trip over one of the many bridges on the peninsula Cape Coral is worth seeing. The offshore island Sanibel and Captiva have miles of gorgeous beaches, which are used by vacationers all year round. You will find numerous water sports, beach bars, restaurants and many small boutiques and shops.
In addition, in just 20 minutes you can reach Pine Island and the small fishing village of Matlatcha. Here was the world-famous series Flipper shot. Furthermore, enjoy the incredible view in “Bert’s Bar” while enjoying the best fish and chips.
