Surf's Up in Cocoa Beach

Posted April 30, 2010 by Jaclyn Liechti

Cocoa Beach At first glance, the city of Cocoa Beach may seem to be just another popular beach town, but in fact it has much more to offer. Located on a barrier island off Florida’s Atlantic coast, the six-mile-long island is also near the Kennedy Space Center. Visitors can enjoy the laid-back atmosphere at affordable prices, especially during Florida’s low season in summer.

Ron Jon Surf Shop: One of the most recognizable surf brands in the world makes its home along the shores of Cocoa Beach. Although Ron Jon Surf Shops can be found in other cities, the one-of-a-kind flagship store shouldn’t be missed. Browse through more than two acres of beach gear and accessories, no matter what time of day you want to shop. You can even rent surfboards, wetsuits, and kayaks to use in the Florida waters. Foam surfboard rentals start at $10 for four to eight hours.
