While Cape Coral is best known for its 400 miles of canals, the city is also home to many lakes which offer the ultimate in waterfront living. Cape Coral’s lakes are primarily man-made and were dug when the city was developed to provide fill and material for roadways. Both saltwater gulf access and freshwater lakes are found in Cape Coral.
One of the true treasures of the Southwest Florida region is the Eight Lakes neighborhood in Southwest Cape Coral. This neighborhood draws its name from the dual cloverleaf shaped lakes that anchor the community. The sunsets over Eight Lakes are dramatic and are a highlight to each and every day.
