  • It is not common to find free parking in the United States. This cocoa beach, it does. There are public baths, showers, a small truck selling cold drinks. When you go down to the beach, there is a lifeguard and umbrellas and lounge chairs are rented at in accessible value. If there is a chance of rain, the rent is cheaper. Quiet beach, nice waves to go with family

  • We parked her to access the beach and not have to pay for parking. The walk to the beach is an old wooden walk way so be careful. My kids enjoyed the walkway because there were trees on both sides. My oldest also noticed the signs about the sea turtle nesting so be mindful during nesting season. The park also has bathrooms (not clean), there was someone there selling shaved ice and there are stations to rinse of the sand however the pressure was not high enough to be effective. I'm giving 3 stars for free parking and access to the beach.
  • Made a quick trip to Cocoa Beach by the way of Lori Wilson Park. Parking is free here. There are restrooms and a place to shower. Everyday I believe they have a good truck there (cash only). Lifeguards are on duty this stretch of the beach. You need to get there before 11 to find a parking spot. Great little park.
