Cocoa Beach, Florida lies just south of Cape Canaveral. It's a fantastic place to visit because of the beautiful beaches, year-round warm weather, and activities for everyone from adults to kids and visitors of all ages. Whether you're here with your family, or on a fishing trip, or with a group of your best friends for a beach getaway, Cocoa Beach offers so much to do that you'll have trouble fitting it all in. You can see the local wildlife at the Manatee Sanctuary or watch dolphins in the ocean. Or head up to watch a rocket launch from the NASA launchpads. Or go kayaking, paddling, or snorkeling. And of course don't miss all of the fun beach restaurants and bars around town, too.
A beach house in Cocoa Beach is one of the best ways to experience this area, because you'll have the extra space and privacy that you need while also being close to everything in town. Many of the best beach rentals in the area are just a block or two back from the ocean. This means that they are affordable and also spacious. With extra bedrooms, more bathrooms, and fully stocked kitchens, you'll be able to stay comfortable and relaxed during your entire trip.
