Having your boat docked in your backyard in a tropical paradise may sound like something for the rich and famous. It doesn't have to be that way. The boating experience and getting out to the waters around Sanibel Island or other Gulf of Mexico locations are within reach without spending millions of dollars. Browse through these Gulf Access building sites in Cape Coral and you'll see that the prices are affordable compared to places like Naples or Sarasota or the east coast of Florida around Ft. Lauderdale. You'll find sailboat access properties that will get you out to the river in minutes. Other areas may involve one or two bridges to pass under before meandering out to open water. Living the waterfront dream is a wonderful thing and has been happening in Cape Coral for decades.
