  • This place is great! Free parking and free to get to the beach (I've heard you have to pay to access the beach elsewhere in cocoa). Restrooms on site are free to use and there are showers to rinse the sand off. A little truck selling hot dogs and shaved ice. Can rent two loungers and a beach umbrella for $20 for the day (there are other rental options). Car park fills up late morning/lunch time but the beach isn't busy at all and is beautiful and clean. We're so glad we went here instead of the main beach. Just down the road from Ron Jon's Surf Shop, and places to eat.
  • Loving it, FREE parking , showers and restrooms. We rented 2 lounge chairs and umbrella for the day for 20. Not crowded at all and the water is wonderful. Great day on the beach for Patti and Fred from PA.
  • Very cool little spot right next to a sketchy hotel. Restrooms, ample FREE parking, and direct beach access. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I found a big bag filled with little baggies of some sort of powdery substance in the parking lot.
  • Tranquility at its finest! The bathrooms are very clean, there's always parking available and overall clean and a friendly atmosphere.
  • Had a great time hanging with the locals in the big dog park. Plenty of space water and fun to let fido unwind!

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.
