CAPE HAZE is all about an understated Florida Gulf coast lifestyle. This southwest Florida location is refreshingly not crowded. Cape Haze has inviting tropical Caribbean features: white sand Gulf beaches, secluded barrier island neighbors, Gulf waters fishing and boating, romantic beach views and beach sunsets. There are ten golf courses within 20 minutes of Cape Haze.
Cape Haze is a 30-mile, largely natural peninsula overlooking the Gulf of Mexico on the relaxed southwest Florida coast approximately 45 miles south of cosmopolitan Sarasota. It is comprised of two sections: Cape Haze East is the interior golf community, and Cape Haze Windward is the super-private coastal isle community with numerous coastal-inspired estates. Cape Haze West has spectacular homes located on the northern end of Placida Harbor. Many homes are on over-sized lots and the streets meander through mature tropical vegetation. Cape Haze Windward is a maintenance-free community containing both full-sized single family homes as well as a section of patio homes. Some homes sit on the golf course, while others have views of wooded landscape or the peaceful community.
Inviting, largely uninhabited barrier islands surround Cape Haze: Boca Grande, Palm Island, Little Gasparilla, Don Pedro, Cayo Costa, Pine Island and the even more private Useppa and Cabbage Key. Cape Haze is a place to go boating among lost islands and find virtually uncharted marinas, inns and restaurants. Enjoy jet skiing in well hidden Ski Alley.
Find superb Gulf waters fishing in secret and unmapped inlets, creeks and waterways. Try Boca Grande tarpon fishing, snapper or grouper fishing. Enjoy relaxing beach fishing. Or tranquil shell hunting, even sharks tooth collecting on Englewood beaches. The Florida southwest has features of the tropical Caribbean: palm trees, sea grape, mangroves and tall coastal grasses. The weather is dry and crisp from November through April as Cape Haze is coddled by a pleasant Caribbean Sea climate. May to October gets hotter with more rainfall.
