Brevard County’s Best Beaches

Florida’s Space Coast offers so much more than just a bird’s-eye view of the nation’s shuttle launches. Although internationally known as the launching pad of America’s space exploration program, some of the highlights of this area are its spectacular shorelines and recreational opportunities.

Yet even before the rockets first launched from Kennedy Space Center, it was the beautiful 72 miles of Atlantic beaches and the Intracoastal waterways of the Indian and Banana Rivers that have drawn visitors to this area for over a century. From the luxurious riverfront hotels that attracted U.S. presidents and dignitaries on vacation to the Cocoa/Rockledge area almost 100 years ago to the waters around Cape Canaveral, our coastline has always had a special allure for fishermen, surfers, sailors and those just looking to spend a few hours in peaceful bliss.

Just 35 miles from Orlando, the Brevard county coastline is the perfect place to unwind from the fast-paced mainstream vacation. It doesn’t take a weary traveler long to discover there’s no need to venture inland to find an out-of-this-world holiday.

The Space Coast was chosen as the home of the one and only East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame and Museum because of its reputation as the true “Capital of East Coast surfing.” The kinder, gentler waves from Cape Canaveral through Cocoa Beach and south through Melbourne have created something of an elite group of champions—most notably Kelly Slater, the “Babe Ruth of Surfing,” who has won nine world championships.

For golfing enthusiasts, Brevard offers over 25 courses from executive to semi-private clubs featuring golf for all skill levels surrounded by Florida’s native wildlife. For the avid fisherman, the area boasts incredible river and ocean fishing on the beach or by charter boat, with picturesque Sebastian Inlet Park being home to some of the finest fishing in the world.

The average daytime temperature of 73 degrees affords a mild climate for just about any outdoor activity. Tourists seeking a vacation spot where sun and sea meet will thrill to the opportunities waiting to be discovered here. The beachside communities come complete with a selection of family-friendly venues for everything from miniature golf to craft fairs and unique shopping experiences. Day cruises and spas offering special deals to tourists can be booked last-minute or planned ahead of time as there are many affordable options. After a relaxing day indulging in your favorite pastime, visitors can choose from an array of eateries and pubs from casual to gourmet dining which accommodate all appetites and budgets.

Whether you are looking for the untouched, secluded beaches and historical towns along the coast or you are a sports-enthusiast who wants to experience the plentiful water sports along the southern beaches, one thing is for certain; Brevard county is the Atlantic’s gateway to the perfect vacation.
