Things to do in Cocoa Beach:
Well, this is just a given. The sand is so different from the beaches here in South Florida. It’s so soft. Since it was windy, the waves were great as well. (My boys love jumping the waves.) We actually parked at Ron Jon’s Surf Shop for free and walked the short walk to the beach.
Ron Jon Surf Shop is recognized world-wide as an icon of the surf and beach lifestyle. The location in Cocoa Beach is the World’s Largest Surf Shop and is Ron Jon’s “One of a Kind” flagship facility. The best part: it’s open 24 hours a day! Not only can you buy your favorite beach essentials, but they rent them too.
Golf ‘n Gator is a 36 hole mini golf course. The kids had so much fun competing against each other. (The hubby & I also had our own competition.) Not only did they practice their putting skills, but they were vying for the coveted “hole in one.” Golf ‘n Gator also has live alligators that you can feed and pose with. Yeah, I skipped that part!
This historic Cocoa Beach Pier was built in 1962 and stands 800ft. above the ocean. It has 5 restaurants, 4 bars, and a gift shop. You can rent fishing equipment and catch the varied fish in the ocean. We actually saw a group catch a baby hammerhead shark…the boys were AMAZED!
We had a great time visiting Cocoa Beach, a new spot for us in our Sunshine State! Have you ever traveled to Cocoa Beach? Do you have any recommendations for the next time we visit?
