Cocoa Beach Surfing

Less Crowded Beaches With Surf

The Atlantic Ocean waters tend to be cooler than the waters in the Gulf of Mexico; but during the summer months, they are certainly warm enough for comfortable swimming. The western beaches on the Gulf of Mexico tend to be very shallow, so you can wade out hundreds of meters from the shore and still stand in shallow water. This creates a good safe swimming environment for children, but is not suitable for surfing. On the Atlantic Ocean, one can find some very nice ocean surf, and Cocoa Beach is a favorite place for surfboard riders.
One of the nicest features of Cocoa Beach is its lack of tourist crowds. The communities of Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral and Melbourne are primarily residential neighborhoods populated by retired families and many workers from the nearby NASA space launch facility. There are some hotels, motels condominiums and vacation rental homes for tourists, but they are not as concentrated as at other Florida beachside communities. The thirty miles of sandy beaches at Cocoa Beach and the additional miles of beautiful beaches heading south through Melbourne are typically frequented by Florida residents with only a scattering of tourists.
