Celebrate Romance, Cocoa Beach Style
Plan a getaway for some romance this year
Love is in the air! It’s that time of year when the commercials and Valentine's displays at the stores remind you to celebrate that special someone. Whether you are enjoying a new romance, loving yourself this year, or celebrating a love that has lasted for years, getting away for some romance can do you some good—no matter where you find yourself on the love spectrum.
Here’s a few ways you can have a romantic day in Cocoa Beach.
Take a stroll along the beach
What’s better than taking a walk along the shoreline than doing it either at sunrise or sunset? Whether you prefer to start your day early or would rather end your night with the golden hue of the setting sun, enjoying nature is a sure-fire way to kick off or end a day of romance. Looking for more adventure? Add a sunrise or sunset surf session to your itinerary.
Satisfy your morning sweet tooth
Instead of making yourself sick with all the candies and chocolate, opt for a balance of homemade pastries and coffee from Juice 'n Java or an Acaí Bowl from Café Surfinista. Save the decadent dark chocolate for an after-dinner treat and start your day off with a healthy balance of sweets and whole food and, of course, espresso!
Get a birds' eye view!
Cocoa Beach Aerial Adventures is an area attraction that brings a combination of coordination and problem solving with a bit of body movement and a whole lot of fun. Prepare to be suspended in the air as you make your way through 40 different challenges that range from beginner to advanced. And while you’re hanging high, get a birds’ eye view of not only beautiful Cocoa Beach but also your companion.
Sample some craft beer
If your perfect day consists of finding some of the best craft beers in the area, then you’ll want to head over to Cocoa Beach Brewing Company. This family-owned and operated brewery offers award-winning beers like the Cocoa Beach Pale Ale and Not Just Some Oatmeal Stout along with a variety of traditional craft brews and unique, seasonal beers that are sure to please your taste buds. Want to try more local beers? Check out nearby Florida Beer Company for more award-winning brews in a modern taproom environment.
Relax in paradise
You’re already at the beach, one of the most popular ways to relax, but Cocoa Beach provides other ways for you to get the most out of your relaxation time. Cocoa Beach Spa provides a serene, laid-back atmosphere that couples that old Florida beach style with the pleasantries of a posh spa. And what better to romance you than with a day here? Better yet, make it a couple’s spa day where you treat yourselves to facials, massages, and so much more.
Pack a picnic lunch
When you want to enjoy as much beach time as possible, the only planning ahead you have to do is create a list of things to bring. And one of the most important items on that list is food. Here are some spots to pick up some yummy treats that aren’t “fast food.”
Markets to put your own food assortment together
Hit the links
Got a hankering to see how you fare on the golf course? Hit the links for some fun at Lighthouse Cove. How on earth is playing mini-golf romantic? Well, at Lighthouse Cove you’ll feel as if you’ve been transported to a magical place where your inner child gets to come out and play. Reminisce the start of your love story while enjoying a drink or two and end your time with the perfect treat: Ice Cream!
Paint the night away
When looking to add a little spark or fire to your romance, trying something new that taps into your creative side may be the right idea. When you head over to Painting with a Twist in Cocoa Village, just a short drive from Cocoa Beach, you’ll get to find not only a new way to take your romance to the next level, you may just find the inner Picasso that’s been lying dormant.
