Activities

Although the arguably most famous beach in the town is called Yacht Club, don't be alarmed by the name-it's not private, and even if for some reason you don't like it, there are plenty of others to choose from thanks to Cape Coral's ideal location on the coast. The biggest advantage of Cape Coral perhaps though is that while there is plenty to do within the town, it's just a short drive to the large city of Fort Myers for anything else you may want.
