Cocoa Beach

Piers & Boardwalks · Beaches · Water Sports
Situated in one of Florida's busiest vacation areas, Cocoa Beach burst onto the world scene in the 1960s, when it became a popular setting for parades honoring the nation's "Apollo" astronauts. In just over ten years the city went through such a major growth that its population increased by over 1,000 percent. Today, Cocoa Beach is home to just over 10,000 residents, though that number increases significantly during the height of the holiday season. More than just a sun-drenched paradise of sandy beaches, the town is also part of the so-called "Space Coast," a historical area around the space center on the Atlantic coast. Add Cocoa Beach and other destinations in United States to your travel plans using our United States trip itinerary planner.

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.
