About Cape Haze

Unexplored – Untouched – Nature Pure

The Cape Haze Peninsula is the last touristic untouched coastline of Southwest Florida. It is situated between Fort Myers and Sarasota, directly on the Gulf of Mexico. The reason for its untouched character lies in the geographical situation of the peninsula. It is 18 miles away from Interstate 75 and 11 miles from Tamiami Trail (US41). “This is how Florida used to be” – rave our visitors. With 3 Keys and a total of 40 miles of pristine sandy beaches, it offers the beach lovers the longest coastline on Florida’s west coast. Dolphins, tarpons, dozens of species of water birds, large sea and land turtles, raccoons, alligator, and bobcats all call this area their home. And don’t to forget we get 330 sunny days per year. The once only by fishermen populated area has worked its way high up in the popularity charts of Europeans with many new single-family homes and shops. A great area for a family vacation or romantic getaway!
