Known for its fantastic weather, beautiful wide beaches, and amazing waves for surfing, Cocoa Beach offers the best opportunity for “sun and fun” on the Space Coast. Only six miles long and less than one mile wide, this barrier island town sits between the Atlantic Ocean and the Banana River. Its coastal location makes it not only a desirable residential community, but also a popular tourist destination.
Oftentimes referred to as the surfing capital of the East Coast, Cocoa Beach offers a diverse array of recreational and leisure opportunities. Golf, tennis, fishing, kayaking, shopping, strolling the beach, and even watching a rocket launch are all easily accessible within the city limits of this lively little beach town. There are many types of housing options available to suit all budgets and desires, ranging from riverfront condos and oceanfront estates, to single family homes within walking distance of schools and canal-front townhomes.
Highlights of Cocoa Beach include the Cocoa Beach Pier, home to restaurants, bars, gift shops, and live music; the “world famous” Ron Jon Surf Shop which is open for shopping 24 hours a day; and the picturesque beaches where you can take surfing lessons or enjoy a great game of sand volleyball.
With its famous beaches, excellent weather, and ideal location close to both Orlando and NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, it is no wonder Cocoa Beach is loved by locals and tourists alike.
