Cocoa Beach Pier, Cocoa Beach, Florida

Visiting the pier on Cocoa Beach (http://www.cocoabeachpier.com/) is a great way to spend an afternoon or evening near the ocean.

The last time I was there we went out near the end where the Mai Tiki Bar provides several tropical favorites. While enjoying a cool beverage in the warm sun a friendly pelican decided to share the rail I was leaning against. What a picture!

Afterwards we played in the ocean under and around the pier and scoured the beach for perfect sea shells. My sister and I collected enough shells to create several necklaces, earrings and bracelets.

The pier has several shops and restaurants. You can have local, fresh seafood or sandwiches and appetizers.

It seemed like no matter what time it was, there was always something to do on or near the pier. There was a free band and a beach party one night and always good people-watching and sand castle creation during the day.

Several other shops and restaurants are within walking distance of the pier, if you don’t finds exactly what you’re looking for in one of the shops there. You can also fish from the pier, 800 feet into the Atlantic Ocean, or surf in the waves below.

I’m not one for surfing, but I did have my picture taken on a surf board, just so I could say I tried it! If surfing isn’t your thing, the pier offers rentals, fresh water showers and beach volley-ball.

The beach is much nicer than Daytona Beach and the public parking and easy-access to the pier make it a perfect day trip.
