Cocoa Beach, Florida

Cocoa Beach, Florida is located along the Atlantic coastline less than 50 miles (85km) due east of Disney World. You can drive from the amusement parks in Orlando to this beach in less than 1 hour. It is the closest ocean beach to every the Orlando amusement attractions including Disney World, Universal Studios and Ocean World. Cape Canaveral lies just to the north of Cocoa Beach and city of Melbourne is just south of it.

Several visitors to the Orlando amusement attractions choose to drive over 100 miles (165 km) west to the Gulf beach beaches at Clearwater rather than these closer Atlantic beaches. The west seaside beaches are very nice with their warm shallow Gulf of Mexico waters, their powdery soft sands and their several tourist attractions, but these closer east beach Atlantic beaches also have much to offer.
