Cocoa Beach lies in the heart of Florida's Space Coast, a stretch of beach that heads south from Cape Canaveral down the Atlantic coastline. Here you'll find not only gorgeous beaches and fantastic weather year-round, but also plenty of activities for everyone. First of all, there's the beach itself with warm, clear waters. Along the beach is Cocoa Beach's boardwalk and pier. This is just one of many places where you'll find shops, restaurants, and activities for all ages. Check out the original Ron Jon Surf Shop and have a stroll out on the iconic pier for great views and a drink. And since Cocoa Beach lies on a barrier island, you'll also find plenty of watersports and activities away from the beach on the Banana River. Fishing, kayaking, stand-up paddle, the Manatee sanctuaries, and dolphin cruises are also on the must-do list. Of course, we can't forget about all of the attractions up at Cape Canaveral where you can tour the NASA facilities and see the rockets. If you time your visit to Cocoa Beach well, you can also watch a rocket launch from right outside your beach house or beach condo as most of the shoreline has a view on a clear day.
Are you looking for a place to stay in Cocoa Beach? That's no surprise, because this iconic beach destination makes for the perfect beach destination. And it's not far from Orlando, too, so you can even combine both places into one trip. Cocoa Beach vacation rentals are one of the best ways to enjoy your trip to the Space Coast, because they have everything you need including extra bedrooms, a kitchen, and terrific locations. Also, many Cocoa Beach rentals can be very affordable and cost the same as a hotel or resort. So why not consider a Cocoa Beach Airbnb for your next trip?
