Whether youâ€™re traveling to the beaches of southwest Florida by car, or straight from your Cape Coral dock, youâ€™ll be happy when you get there. Either way, itâ€™s only a short journey to some of the most fabulous beaches that southwest Florida has to offer.
With white, sugar sand and the gentle Gulf waves, the southwest Florida beaches are perfect for beach bums of every age! No matter what type of activity you enjoy, youâ€™ll find it at these beaches. Enjoy things like fishing, boating, parasailing, riding on jet skis or wave runners, building sand castles, or just relax and bask in the sun, while sipping on a cool beverage (tiny umbrella optional).
Residents of Cape Coral are lucky to be able to choose from dozens of local beaches, depending on their particular tastes. What are some of the great local beaches?
The Yacht Club is our local beach that has been described very well by the others. =) It includes a boat ramp, a huge pier for walking, fishing, or enjoying the weather, a kids playground, snack center, and beach.
Dog lovers should check out â€œDog Beachâ€ in Bonita Springs â€“ where pups are free to run and play off their leashes. Thereâ€™s free parking at Bunche Beach, near the Iona area. At Fort Myers Beach, you will find all kinds of bars, restaurants and nightlife to keep you entertained all day long. The quieter beaches of Sanibel and Captiva are well known for being among the best places in the world for shell collectors.
Most Florida retirees want to stay as active as possible, and thereâ€™s no better place to do that than at one of the beaches near Cape Coral! Walking in the sand is great for toning your legs and thighs. You can also play Frisbee or catch. Bending over to look for shells is also a great way to stay flexible. If you need a break from the heat, you can walk a short distance to a variety of beach shops, and get a good workout along the way!
For adventurous retirees, the beaches offer more intense sports like paddle-boarding and kite surfing. If you have a boat (or a friend with a boat), waterskiing can also be a fun sport to try.
But, even if you have no intention of leaving your chair and umbrella, the beach is still the perfect place to be. Enjoy quiet sunsets, the gentle lapping of waves on the shore, and birds gliding through the clear skies. If that sounds like a retirement plan that youâ€™d sign up for, then consider making your home in Cape Coral.
