You’ll want to make sure to visit the beach daily on your Cape Coral travel adventure. Start your day with a walk or run on the beach or spread your beach blanket and plant your umbrella for a day of relaxation by the water. You can splash around in the waves for a swim, or go on a snorkel, stand up paddleboard, or kayak adventure. Get your adrenaline going with parasailing, water skiing, or tubing, then wind up the day with a sunset walk on the beach.
Anglers will want to take time to slow down and relax on a weekend break. Pack your fishing gear or make plans to join a fishing charter. Many companies in the area charter fishing adventures in shore, near shore, and out to the deep sea of the Gulf. Some may even point the boat toward calmer waters of bays, inlets, and feeder streams or creeks for some fly fishing. If you view fishing as a solo activity, rent some gear and ask the locals about the best places to cast a line. No matter how you catch your next meal, make sure you secure a Florida fishing license first.
Sun Splash Family Water Park
You may head to the beach for your dose of water and sun on a Cape Coral weekend retreat, or you can choose to take a refreshing dip another way.

Take a float down the lazy river or pack your visit with thrills on slides like “Terror Tube,” “Thunder Bump,” and “X-Cellerator.” Test your strength and agility on the “Sand Dollar Walk” – a ropes course over water or keep the thrills going on the drop slides that drop off just before you hit the water.
