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.
