Cocoa Beach Florida
Cocoa Beach Florida
Located on a barrier island nestled between the great Atlantic Ocean and the Banana River Lagoon on Florida's Central East Coast, Cocoa Beach continues to link the birth of the Space Age with the wonder of the future.
Just six miles long and mostly less than one mile wide, Cocoa Beach is truly a unique place! Where else can you choose between watching a space launch from the beach or precious marine and bird species in their natural habitat? Or choose between a swim in the ocean or a quiet kayak exploration off the Banana River islands from our river shore? Play a round of golf at our 27-hole golf course, surf cast from the beach for dinner or just enjoy a day at the beach where you will likely see dolphins at play or be lucky enough to see an occasional whale in migration. Widely known as the surfing capitol of the East Coast, Cocoa Beach is the hometown of a number of surfing champions - including six time world champ Kelly Slater.
Of course, the primary attraction to Cocoa Beach is the weather. With its coastal location and positioned where two climatic zones (sub-tropic and temperate) meet, our weather usually avoids extremes. This unique location thus attracts wildlife indigenous to both climatic zones as well as coastal and migratory species. And, of course, our weather, beaches and local amenities attract human visitors as well. Many of our residents first experienced Cocoa Beach as visitors and eventually relocated here!
Cocoa Beach is a residential community and a tourist destination. Cocoa Beach is the primary tourist destination on the Florida Space Coast. It is also home to an active retiree population, many of whom devoted their careers to our nation's space program. The casual beach lifestyle is enjoyed by visitors and residents alike!
