Cocoa Beach Attractions and Things To Do

Locals separate Cocoa Beach into two exciting and enjoyable experiences. To the north, you’ll find the Westgate Cocoa Beach Pier and the iconic Ron Jon Surf Shop. Hotels and motels with cruise shuttle packages, free beach rentals, and on-site ocean-front dining options are perfect choices for cruise passengers and weekend warriors alike. To the south, you’ll find Lori Wilson Park – known for its free parking, lifeguarded beaches, frequent sea turtle releases, and expansive boardwalks – and Downtown Cocoa Beach. This lively community is filled with murals, tiki bars, local boutiques, busy live entertainment venues, and must-experience events all year long. Spend all day exploring both by renting beach cruisers or Polaris slingshots or hopping on the beach trolley.
