  • I have been coming here ever since I was 7 years old. I have always lived in Orlando. I used to surf here as a child and teenager. I'm 41 years old now. This is the best place to visit if you are a local, local to central Florida, or if you are visiting from anywhere else. Hands down the best family beach and pier in the world. Surfs up!
  • Cool little pier but it costs $20 to park. This is one of the first beaches you will find coming east from Orlando. It is a great little place but it is expensive. It will cost $20 to park at the Pier and even if you find better parking farther away it will cost you $2 a person to go to the end of the pier (which is worth going to do). There is a good amount of food and retail options on the pier. Good waves for basic surfing on the beach and plenty of beach
  • The pier did need updating the last time I was here, but it has lost that local feel. Still enjoy coming here but the food doesn't need to be so fancy, just good, simple and inexpensive. The pier does look great and I'm glad it is being repaired, how about making a little more room for fishing ? All in all, a good day of people watching!
  • We like this place and have gone often. If parking is a bit expensive and you aren't afraid to walk a few steps then drive around and find a cheaper spot or pay in the meters. Within the sand and rent an umbrella. Definitely worth it. Great service.
  • Nice place to grab a bite to eat or a drink and watch the ocean. We didn't swim here, but lots of people did. Looked fun. Surf lessons were offered. There are lots of rental options as well.

Where to stay in Cocoa Beach

Cocoa Beach attracts water lovers from around the world, but because of this room rates increase the closer you get to the ocean. If you don't need to sleep right on the beach, avoid the oceanfront and consider one of the city's inns or motels that cater to business travelers and cruise ship passengers. Though they rarely offer direct beach access, these types of establishments provide clean and comfortable rooms at a fraction of the price charged by the big chains.
