Cocoa Beach Pier, Space Coast

I really love Cocoa Beach. We drove there again on a beautiful sunny day (what else can you expect in the Sunshine State?) and navigated ourselves to the Westgate Cocoa Beach Pier.

The pier itself was established in the 1960s. There are various restaurants and bars to choose from and even a gift shop. The pier is a popular fishing spot. There’s great beaches on either side of the pier.

Parking costs a hefty 15 US dollars per car. It does give you free access to go to the end of the pier. In order to get a parking space, you should go as early as you can.

At the end of the pier you can find the Rikki Tiki Tavern.

Unfortunately their blender was broken, so only drinks on ice were served.

The beach is very popular. But be warned, there are jellyfish. Several people around me were bitten but it only seemed a problem for the little children as they could not bear the sting.

At the beach, you can play volleyball. Apparently volleyball is a widely accepted sport among the amish.

You can rent umbrellas and/or beach chairs but they come expensive.

If you are in the process of choosing a beach which to visit in Cocoa Beach, check out my post on the beach near the Coconuts on the Beach restaurant.

Have you been to Cocoa Beach Pier? I would love to hear how you liked it.
