The Cocoa region is a region of fantastic contrast. The modern atmosphere of the most famous resort, Cocoa Beach could not be more different from the old Floridian charm of Cocoa, standing on the banks of Indian River. Villas in Cocoa Beach are the absolutely perfect for beach lovers, as the miles upon miles of soft, white sand are an absolute delight on which to relax and soak in the Florida sun.
Cocoa Beach is one of the most spectacular beaches in Florida, stretching as far as the eye can see, lining over 6 miles of the Florida coastline. There is always plenty of space on which to relax, accessible from the whole of the city. Conditions for surfing are often excellent along Cocoa Beach, but there is always plenty of room for swimmers, surfers and beach fishermen to happily go about their business without getting in the way of anyone else. Lifeguards operate on some stretches of the beach, which makes a villa in Cocoa Beach ideal for family holidays.
There is even a 27 hole golf course to play from a villa in Cocoa Beach. Located in the lagoon of the Banana River, the Cocoa Beach Country Club is one of the most remarkable courses imaginable, completely surrounded by water. Unsurprisingly, many of the most taxing hazards are water traps, but even if you are having a rough time, the scenery, climate and beautiful playing conditions will ensure you enjoy your afternoon!
Trips along the Banana River are fantastic fun, whether on an organised cruise or simply under your own steam with the use of a kayak. The river is home to a huge amount of wildlife, the most popular of which, the gracious manatee, can be regularly seen gently grazing in its natural habitat.
Cocoa Beach is a wonderfully vibrant city that comes to life in the evening as people return to their Cocoa Beach villas after a full day in the sun. There are plenty of gourmet restaurants to choose from, and after your evening meal watching the sun dip over the horizon, the choice of bars and clubs is excellent, catering for all tastes in nightlife.
Cape Canaveral is famous globally for the NASA space station located there. Found on the Atlantic Coast and with a white sandy beach over a mile long, and with the famous sands of Cocoa Beach just a few miles away, a self catering holiday villa in Cape Canaveral is a wonderful treat.
Florida’s glorious year round climate is a huge asset for the Cocoa area. The sea remains warm enough for swimming in throughout the year, especially if you are used to swimming off the coast of Britain during the summer! With average monthly temperatures of 31˚C in July and August and over 21˚C in December and January, a Cocoa property rental really is a perfect escape at any time of year.
Properties in Cocoa are just 40 minutes from Orlando International Airport (MCO). Both British Airways and Virgin Atlantic provide direct flights from London to Orlando, and there are plenty of car hire facilities in the airport.
