Stretching 244 m (800 ft) into the Atlantic Ocean, Cocoa Beach Pier provides fantastic views as well as a number of shopping and dining opportunities. Choose from five restaurants, four bars, and several stores. Witness the "surfing capital of the East Coast" in action at Mai Tiki Bar, which offers views of surfers battling the waves. Anglers can enjoy fishing from the pier, and spectators can watch them reel in their catches. A license is not required to fish from here, and equipment is available to rent. A visit to Cocoa Beach Pier represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Cocoa Beach family vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • for 2 hamburgers and fries it was over $24.00. there is a hot dog stand and a liquor store nearby. Pizza was ordered in and it was good 
  • Closest thing to a boardwalk in this beach town but not impressed! Owned by Westgate Resorts...restaurants are okay but pricey, shops close way too early (6pm), parking is not free! Good to watch the ...  read more »
  • Stop and have Coconut shrimp in one of the bars, listen to live music from one of the many artists. Walk to the end, it's worth $2, and have a cocktail, whilst sitting in one of the multi coloured roc...  read more »
  • Run!!!! Spend your hard earned money somewhere else. Worst place to eat in our 10 day stay. They sent out burnt fish to my child AND new it. Manager proceeded to tell me he would tell my waiter, whom never came back. Had to leave from the time constraint and my poor girl didn't get any supper there. Worst customer service and slower than molasses in winter time. Menu very limited and my lobster was not that great either. Water tastes like dirt too. Rustys restaurant was great and so was Shark Pit Bar and Grill. Go there instead.
  • Rest of the family wanted to walk to the end. Guess I gave in to 'Pier Pressure'. Great views and helpful staff. We watched a rocket launch from Kennedy Space Centre while we were here. Amazing view!
  • This was my first time back to the pier since I was a kid. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the stores and restaurants. It was a great vantage point to see the sailboats finishing the Florida 300 race.
  • Love this beach. Been coming here for years. Today's trip leaves me mind boggled. We get there, set up our half tent and family complains...they set up shop as far as possible and expect to have a clean line of sight the whole time. Lmao! This is Florida and a public beach. People are going to set up shop in front of you if they have the opportunity. Deal with it or stay off our beaches.
  • VACATIONERS BEWARE!!!!! Local who decided to try out the "new" pier for dinner. Will NOT happen again. Made it just before the rush so we were seated immediately. Menu is very limited and if you don't like fried food, don't go. Ordered the bucket sampler: gator, oysters, fish nuggets, shrimp ,fries, coleslaw and hubby ordered lobster tacos. Nothing special about the food and funny taste to everything, almost like grass or dirt. Best part was coleslaw, but only if you like poppyseed dressing. If you want good fried gator, catfish, shrimp, go to Lone Cabbage Fish Camp in Cocoa (Cocoa and Cocoa Beach are separated by an island, Merritt Island, please don't say you are at the beach in Cocoa). Another great place is on the river in Cocoa north of 528 on US1: Old Florida Grill, better menu selection, awesome burgers and seafood; cooked how you want it. I can only hope the new owner, David Siegel, stops in for a meal someday because his own family wouldn't eat here.
