The 11 best things to do in Cocoa Beach

An hour east of Orlando, this picture-perfect beach community sits on a barrier island, separated from the mainland by the Indian River Lagoon – an inland waterway that acts as a natural adventure park for boats and marine life. The endless sandy beach is Cocoa’s main attraction, whether you’re a sun-worshipper or a surfer. But Cocoa Beach has way more in its locker than surf, sun and sand. As the sun goes down, the area’s nightlife kicks into action, earning it a reputation as a bit of a party town. In total contrast, the Kennedy Space Center is just up the road. Time your visit right and you may see a rocket launch streaking high into the sky leaving a trail of smoke and vapour in its wake. Done something on this list and loved it?
