A place where surf and sand and the feel of the sixties are waiting
Cocoa Beach is without doubt the easiest beach to access in all of Florida. Just ten minutes from the interstate highway and less than an hour from Disney world, Cocoa Beach has somehow managed to remain the fun yet uncrowded place to swim, surf and fish it was in the 1960s and 70s. There are dozens of small clean inexpensive motels to stay in that are just a short walk across boardwalks to the beach. Cocoa Beach itself stretches for miles to either side of it's landmark pier and what is perhaps its most famous monument Ron Jon's Surf Shop. Ron Jon's is a shopping experience unto itself where the latest summer fashions are always on sale.

Cocoa was built as a surfers paradise and that theme is still in effect today. Although modern comforts have taken control of the city, and some of the beach atmosphere, as oceanfront condominiums space themselves all along the waterfront. Still the beach and the ocean are free to all who want to traverse them. There is plenty of free parking where one can park a car and easily carry their beach supplies to the sand.

Dining at Cocoa Beach is decidedly casual with fresh seafood available in virtually every restaurant. For fine dining in the evening one need only travel inland a few miles to the enclave of Cocoa Village, a collection of fine shops and restaurants. Cocoa Beach is a marvelous place to use as a base of operations when visiting Florida. One can reach Miami in just three hours by car for the world's most exciting nightlife. All of central Florida's theme parks are easily reached. Hotels are much less costly than those in the Disney area and when one stays in Cocoa Beach they are given a sense that they have traveled to a time when Florida was a place built strictly for sun and fun.
