Cocoa Beach Florida
World famous Cocoa Beach, put on the map by the tourist attraction of Ron Jon Surf Shop and it’s close proximity to Orlando. Known as “Orlando’s closest beach” Cocoa Beach does get it’s fair share of tourist, however the southern section is also a great beach town for families featuring a variety of real estate options to choose from.
Families are drawn to Cocoa Beach for the highly rated school system and proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and Banana River. Full time residents and second home owners are drawn to the highly desirable oceanfront homes along A1A. These properties start at $800 – $1 MM for a small 50ft wide lot. The oceanfront properties with 75ft – 100ft+ of frontage sell at a premium, brining anywhere from $1.3MM – well over $2 MM. Along the Banana River you’ll find properties overlooking preserve, abundant with wildlife. This preserve is a series of little islands know as the Thousand Islands which are perfect scenery for kayaking, boating or stand up paddle boarding.
As you continue to head south, the island narrows towards Patrick Air Force Base. The condos on the higher floors in this area will enjoy both Atlantic and Banana River views. There are many good restaurants to try in South Cocoa Beach, the best being the Fat Snook!
