“Home of many shark attacks”
It's been called the quintessential beach town, and Cocoa Beach, an hour's drive east of Orlando on Florida's beautiful Space Coast, offers endless ways to enjoy recreation and leisure. Whether you are planning a family beach vacation, leisure travel, a business trip, a weekend getaway, or just a day at the beach, you'll find everything you need in Cocoa Beach and the Space Coast area to make your stay one to remember. In the past 100 years, there have been 90 reported shark confrontations on beaches in this county on Florida's east coast. Visitors head east from Orlando to the ocean to dip toes in the tepid waters at Cocoa Beach, Jetty Park and Klondike Beach, a 24-mile-long wilderness beach accessible only by foot in Canaveral National Seashore preserve.
I've been to Cocoa Beach on a number of occasions, and the one constant is that certain stretches of the beach are trashed. I've been told that this is detritus from the numerous cruise ships that dock in Cape Canaveral, but still, it was so bad that I refused to take off my shoes, fearing that I might step on broken glass or a shredded aluminum beer can. Though once you get into the water, the beach is quite pleasant.
Nice beach when it's not too crowded.
When we went during spring break it was very clean by the pier, there were things you could rent and I was surprised that it wasn't to crazy.. Laid back.
