Known as the “Waterfront Capital of the World”, our lovely city of Cape Coral is a unique destination that must be experienced to be believed. Miles of canals create a scenic outdoor playground, and water recreation is a treasured local pastime, whether it’s fishing in the canals or kayaking out to the Caloosahatchee River. This lovely landscape can be a perfect destination for a romantic vacation, offering a low-key pace of life, amazing local restaurants, and plenty of sunshine throughout the year. As an additional bonus, the tropical beaches of the Gulf Coast are only a 20-mile day trip away and offer additional Cape Coral activities that can be enjoyed with your partner. If you’re thinking of taking a romantic vacation to Cape Coral, there’s countless reasons why that’s the perfect decision!
Explore Cape Coral’s Canal Network
Unlike anywhere else in the country, Cape Coral sits on a network of hundreds of miles of canals, each offering an opportunity to discover something new. Rent your own kayaks and explore the neighborhood by water or dock up at the Boathouse Tiki Bar and Grill for a few hours and order some drinks and appetizers. If you’re reserving a canal front rental, you can rent kayaks, so you always have a way out to the water, or even your own boat if your rental offers docking! From fishing for snapper to just admiring the waterfront views, the canals of Cape Coral are a destination all on their own!
Take in Sunset at the Yacht Club Public Beach
One of the best places around to watch the sunset is the Yacht Club Public Beach, looking over at the flowing waters of the Caloosahatchee River. It’s easy to get to from most places in town and offers Cape Coral visitors a nearby beach where you can sit on the sand with your partner and admire a fantastic view of the sunset. The community park also offers a community pool, boat ramp, marina, and fishing pier, giving you plenty to do as you visit. Unfortunately, the park is slated for restoration construction for two years beginning April 2022, however the Boathouse is directly next door to the park and offers up the same fantastic views, along with a drink or two!
Venture to the Matlacha Pass for an Aquatic Adventure
The Matlacha Pass and National Wildlife Refuge is one of the most gorgeous and pristine preserves in the area and offers visitors tons of ways to explore and learn about the natural ecosystem and its residents. An amazing way to do this is via kayaking, and Gulf Coast Kayak offers a myriad of tours that will allow you to take advantage of this stunning area. Take a guided ecotour through captivating mangrove forests, and learn history, wildlife facts, and hear stories from an educated guide. For a touch of romance, they also offer activities like a full moon kayak tour, a sunset kayak tour, and sunrise kayak tour.
Spend a Romantic Evening Dining Out
From upscale steakhouses to restaurants serving up freshly caught seafood, the culinary culture in Cape Coral can be top notch. There are several areas in town that have a collection of restaurants fitting for a romantic evening out, such as the Westin Resort and Cape Harbour. Have a night sampling cocktails at the trendy Point 57 or indulge in gourmet creations and water views at Rumrunners. Off Cape Coral Parkway you’ll find a large collection of restaurants, from Italian to Japanese sushi. Of course, it doesn’t always have to be a fancy evening out—for a casual good time, you can always relax at Ford’s Garage, a colorful joint serving up refined pub fare with antique cars suspended over the bars.
