BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA – Cocoa Beach was voted among the top 10 beaches in Florida in a reader survey.
As a residential beach community and tourist destination, Cocoa Beach’s casual beach lifestyle is enjoyed year round.
This six-mile-long pristine ocean beach, located on an Atlantic barrier island, is a premier US beach destination.
Attracting around 2.5 million visitors each year, Cocoa Beach is the perfect place to ride the waves, enjoy a world-famous pier, hike through nature preserves, swim in the ocean, kayak and enjoy other water sports, play a round of golf, or enjoy dolphin watching.
When you’re ready for a historic walk back in time to an old Florida beach village, visit Historic Cocoa Village.
Walk along the historic, tree-lined streets, while enjoying more than 50 shops and relaxing in a nostalgic riverside community. Eat at one of the quaint restaurants, enjoy fine dining, and visit attractions like the historic Playhouse, the Florida Historical Society, and the galleries and artist studios.
The Cocoa Beach Pier stretches 800 feet over the Atlantic, serving as a historic Space Coast landmark since 1962.
Known as an adventure, rather than just a fishing pier, the Cocoa Beach Pier is home to five restaurants, shops, live musical entertainment, and an 800-foot-long fishing pier.
There are also beach rentals, fresh water showers, regulation beach volleyball courts, lifeguards year round, and some of the best surfing on the east coast. Annual events include beach concerts and surf festivals throughout the year.
Known as the Surfing Capital of the East Coast, Cocoa Beach is home to a wealth of surfing champions and the East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame.
