Featured Beach-Cocoa Beach Florida
Every once in awhile on here I will feature a beach that I have been to or want to go to in the future. I will tell what I love about it and what there is to do on that particular beach. The first beach I am going to feature is Cocoa Beach Florida. It is located on the Space Coast near Cape Canaveral. This is our "home beach", the one we keep coming back to, because it is a great surfing beach. If you've ever wanted to surf, this is the beach to start out at! there are a number of surf schools here, the best of which is Space Coast Surf Company. The waves are great for beginners and even small ones are surf-able with a long board.
This is also a great beach because of the Cocoa Beach Pier. It was built in 1962 and stretches 800 ft over the Atlantic Ocean. It is home to 5 bars, 4 restaurants, shops and an ice cream parlor with an arcade (which makes a great sub sandwich, go figure)! This makes Cocoa Beach a very active beach, which adds to the atmosphere.
If you are not a surfer, shopper, or hungry for some great seafood, there is sand volleyball, boogie boarding, sandcastle making, shelling, or just plain lazing on the beach!
So take a little trip to Cocoa Beach. A little sun, sand, and surf never hurt anyone!
