Whether it's the sandy beaches, phenomenal deep-sea fishing, or the wide selection of Cocoa Beach vacation rentals, you'll love this area, which is only an hour's drive east of Orlando and its many theme park attractions.
What's your idea of the ultimate day at the beach? Surfing a great wave? Playing Frisbee? Enjoying a picnic?

Here you'll have lots of room for storage of sports equipment like surfboards, boogie boards, diving and snorkeling gear as well as large living and dining rooms, and outdoor entertainment areas.

Cocoa Beach, Florida rentals encompass luxury private homes, smaller homes, and cottages. If you prefer the convenience of a condominium, there are great selection of Cocoa Beach condo rentals to appease a variety of needs and desires with amenities at many properties like swimming pools, tennis courts, and fitness centers.
Families love this city because of its exceptional oceanfront parks like Alan Shepard Park, Sydney Fischer Park, and Lori Wilson Park, all of which have a variety of facilities and lifeguards on duty.
