Cape Coral is often affectionately referred to as a Waterfront Wonderland, and for good reason! Cape Coral has the largest waterway system in the entire world, with over 400 miles of navigable waterways, and even more canals than Venice, Italy. Anyone who has ever dreamed of living right on the water will feel right at home immediately in Cape Coral. Many Cape Coral waterfront homes even have direct access to the Gulf of Mexico, opening up endless opportunities for day-trips and weekend excursions to nearby islands. Avid fisherman can catch snook right off of their docks and keep their boats right in their backyard – Cape Coral is truly a paradise for anyone who loves being close to water year-round.
