Downtown Cocoa Beach

Downtown and Main Street Cocoa Beach was the place to be back in the 50’s and 60’s when the Space Program took off and made the Space Coast its home. Now, decades later, this place has launched into a hub for long days at the beach, shopping, dining, and a lively nightlife. With over 150 businesses, bars, restaurants, and boutiques unique to Cocoa Beach, and over 15 annual events, you will find plenty of ways to stay entertained and enjoy the area, whether on business, with your close friends, or on family vacation.

Visit the statue of renown surfer and local Cocoa Beach native, Kelly Slater, watch rocket launches from the beach access points, see murals and art lining the streets, learn to surf on the famous Cocoa Beach waves, test your balancing skills as you paddle board the locals waters, and hear live music with great food at one of the many places in walking distance to Downtown Cocoa Beach.
