Cape Romano is a cape at the southern end of Caxambas Island, just south of Marco Island and northwest of the Ten Thousand Islands in Collier County, Florida.Calusa Indians founded the settlement and called it Manataca. Juan Ponce de León briefly stopped at Manataca on his first trip from Puerto Rico to Florida, but the Indians tried to fight him off.Cape Romano is where Hurricane Wilma made its first U.S. landfall in October 2005. In 2008, Tropical Storm Fay came ashore near the cape, as had the 1910 Cuba hurricane.

  • You need to visit by boat. It is now far into the ocean but you can still see how majestic and interesting it was in the past. 
  • This has changed over the last 30 years but a historical site none the less. There is a lot of history in these islands 
  • An interesting site to visit showing the power of water and its effects on unusual construction on the tip of Cape Romano.
