Cape Coral Yacht Club beach reopens to swimming

City Manager John Szerlag reopened the Yacht Club Beach to swimming after lab results from the Department of Environmental Protection showed there was no blue-green algae present in the water.

The Florida Department of Health also tested the water quality and the water is safe for swimming after being closed since July.

Families like Sheerie Beauvais and her two kids have waited to hear the news all summer.

“We heard it was open and the kids have been asking for months now to come back and play,” she said.

The Yacht Club pool staff will also begin collecting general admission fees again starting Friday.
