Beaches

Your space in the sun

There is something about the beach--the smell of the salt air, the gentle breeze, the warm glow of the sun, the rhythm of the waves working a primeval magic on your psyche that goes deeper with every set of surf that washes in.

No one has to tell you to relax at the beach - it's automatic.

So when the ‘worlds' get a little hectic in Orlando, head for Orlando's closest beaches right here on the Space Coast where you can explore the sandy Atlantic shoreline along 72 glorious miles.

You can get far from the crowds, along Canaveral National Seashore, boasting the longest stretch of undeveloped, undisturbed beach on the east coast, looking just about the way it did when Spanish explorers discovered it 500 years ago. See the beach as it was meant to be.

Stop by Port Canaveral's Jetty Park beach, the last land ships pass as they head out to sea. You may see cargo ships, fishing boats, an occasional U.S. navy vessel and (chances are very good) big cruise ships as they embark, because this is the second busiest cruise port in the world!

Ok, you have to head to world-famous Cocoa Beach (voted one of ten BEST BEACH TOWNS in Florida in 2013 by USA TODAY and Dr. Beach) and work your way south along A1A and venture through our other beach towns such as Satellite Beach, Indialantic, and Melbourne Beach. Blend in with surfers, boogie boarders, joggers, fat tire beach cyclers, sun bathers, sandcastle builders, waders, swimmers and just about any other group having fun that you can imagine.
