The closest beach to Orlando. Cocoa beach is located on the Atlantic coast
Just south of Kennedy Space Center, Cocoa beach provides a great viewing spot to watch a launch – if your’e lucky enough to time it right!
The atlantic coast has a cooler sea than the gulf of mexico and has larger waves, making it perfect for surfers.
