BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Jetty Park is one of the most popular recreation spots in Brevard County.

Besides the 4.5 acre family beach with its designated areas for swimming and surfing (lifeguards on duty year round), one of this park’s best-loved features is the 1,200-foot Malcolm E. McLouth Fishing Pier – open from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., paved, lighted, equipped with fish-cleaning tables with running water and fully accessible to the physically challenged.

Specially designed beach wheelchairs give access both to the beach and pier.

A recently renovated and expanded building on the boardwalk houses an air-conditioned refreshment center and a bait and tackle shop.
